Handicapped Christmas Treasures.

This is the 444th post for me and I am excited to be continuing the journey in Triumph on how I have overcome the obstacles that were placed in my path for the last 47 years. The long awaited interview finally is on my friend's blog. It is posted at www.theletstalkmom.com and click on the radio show flower and then click on the " on air button and listen away!!!

When I reflect on the journey of the 444 posts, I also think back to the mid 1970's when our americans were held hostage in Iran for those 444 days. At the end of that journey, they gained their freedom. It took a lot of negotiations at the time to get them free and even a failed attempt to free them earlier. But they got their treasured freedom. '

And that is what this time of year represents us getting our cherished freedom as a country in being to live our lives in a free manner without being told what to do in the 1770's from King George of the country of England. For our nation had in its fledgling birth the guidance of our first President George Washington. It gave the new citizens freedom and the ability to live their lives independently.

Now just getting over on a boat and being crowded was quite a challenge I am sure. I sometimes have been trapped in a crowd and have had trouble seeing over the heads as to what was going on. For these pilgrims that made this across the ocean journey of many days had the fortitude and courage to stick it out.l

For life has given all of us some handicaps I am sure. But as I have unwrapped and dealt with each one, I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that God has enabled me and those pilgrims back in the 1770's and even the hostages in the 1970's the ability to endure tough times.

For these do make us much stronger and I advocate for everyone to step out onto the stage of life and give it a shot. Even if it hurts greatly. For the score will be in our favor.
For our Lord reigns. And I am very thankful for that indeed!!!

Dear Scott, I am so sorry to hear about your struggles.
Thi s is th e first time I hear d about hydrocephalus and read a bit about it on the web.

I was born with a congenital eye disease. Poor vision & highly sensitive to light, I also had poor head control as an infant and awkward gait. In my 20s I began to syffer from hearing loss and in my 30s got arthritis. I am 49 yrs old now.

You are very intellient and have such a sharp mind Scott. The blog enterie s are so well written an d expressed. I really admire your writing.

I have these unseen disabilities , so life is very hard for me as a woman here in India where disabled people don' t have any help.

Luckily it did not affect me in the way it could others. It probably was the yeast that may have triggered the handicaps but it will be a blessing for others.
I challenge you to be the agent of change and make the world better in India for those who face their handicaps.

Thanks for your compliments. The Lord Jesus and my parents deserve all the credit!!!!
