    My reason for not going to church is that there is not 1 church with an interpreter for the deaf…
    I am, for all practical purposes, deaf. my hearing on a good day is like someone trying to whisper to me in a noisy crowd….I can read lips a wee bit, but I’m not real good at it…I miss 90% of what is being said.
    Do I even want to go to church? Yes! I definitely do, but why go if I can’t understand/hear what is being said/preached?

    I miss going to church…I miss the interaction with others, I miss the music, the sermons….
    Maybe one day I will find a church that has services for the deaf.

        TY my friend…
        I know that your heart is in the right place & you have been an inspiration to me from day 1….
        Living where I do has it’s pros & cons, just like any other town does…
        Not having a vehicle to drive, does at times present a problem(especially in winter), but we have learned to adjust, and there is the community bus service that we use quite often…
        in the summer, when weather allows, I will walk most everywhere to save $$, pulling my wagon behind me to carry whatever load I may have from the store.

        If there is something we need but can not afford, I will either make it from scratch(if I can) or go dumpster diving to try & find something similar…
        It’s not the life I had envisioned for myself nor my wife, but it could always be a lot worse.

        I get a lot of freebies from online websites….I sign up for everything I can….even things I personally do not need(baby items, female personal items, etc), what I do with the things I can not use/do not need, is I donate them them to women’s shelters, places like W.I.C., etc.

        Dog & cat food I donate to the local animal shelter….

        God says that we should help others when we can, I’m just trying to do my part in that dept.

        When I look back at all I have been through, it’s easy to lay down & say “woe is me…” but I refuse to do that…

        I honestly believe that GOD has given me this life, as imperfect as it may be, to help others along life’s journey. I wish to do what I can to make their life better for them, just as your friendship has made my life better for me.

        When I was going through my cancer treatments, I saw wha I believe to be Angels in my room, & they were telling me that if I wanted to go “home” (Heaven) they would guide me….

        I kept saying, “…I do not want to go yet…I have too much to do….there are scores of people that need help. I want to help them if I can…”

        Some people think that it was the radiation & the Chemicals messing with my head….as long as I live, I will always believe it was Angels.

        I apologize for babbling on.

        Besides my lovely wife, I have very few people to talk to….

        It is my wish & my prayer, for you & ALL your family(hubby, kids, Grandkids, etc) have a very Merry Christmas, & may GOD be with all of you always.


        1. James, your ideas on how to help others with your “free” items is inspirational. I never thought of that…great idea. I believe you saw angels James. God is good. God be with you my friend.
          PS I am good at making things out of scrap too! It’s a challenge and quite fun.


          1. I am unable to help others in the way I wish to help them, so I do what I can, as much as I can, & whenever I can…

            It’s just my way of trying to help others….

            TY for being such a great friend….I feel GOD has blessed me with your friendship. 🙂

    Ah I really enjoyed this little video, I used to be a faithful Church goer, but when I became ill with chronic fibromyalgia, I lost everything, and ended up alone, and abandoned. None the less this is a cute video and Christ in, I mean “Christ in you” is the only hope of glory, thats is far far more than a relationship – that is an everlasting life within a life, even a handicapped life .

    As well as being a faithful church goer, I was a mens minister, now i minister on my Blog-site and try to live a life which might reflect christ.

    God Bless all.

          1. Hi James, Your comments come up now with that address under your name in my WordPress Dashboard. I also copied the address to my personal email so I won’t lose it. I’m not sure how the subscriptions work or how to change that…it is something I need to learn. 🙂 I hope you are well and had a lovely Christmas and New Year.

            I removed the email address from your message after I copied it. I know spammers sometimes browse blogs to find email addresses and did not want them to find yours here. Blessings my friend.


Thanks so much for your comments. They fill my life with sunshine.
