Ok...I am going to try something that I have never tried before...I am going to try to upload a movie I made about me stroke to my blog. If it works, I am a genius, if it does not, then I am still a genius, but not one who can post movies to his blog. (Just kidding...)
Tomorrow I will preach the funeral for a dear friend of mine. He was the definition of a selfless person. I truly appreciated all that he did, but, when I was meeting with the family on Wednesday a memory came to me suddenly and I was suddenly overcome with emotion. Let me back up a little bit: After my stroke in December, 2008 my license was revoked for obvious reasons and it took me some time and practice before I was able to drive again. I finally got my license back in February, 2009. But, shortly after I got my license back the reality of the severity of my stroke became evident: my stroke had seriously impacted the PONS area of my brain stem, and therefore, a lot of my nerves were negatively impacted. One of the nerves that was damaged was the nerve that controls my eye movements; my left eye would would twitch, at times almost uncontrollably, and that made it really difficult to drive, particularly at night. That brings me to the memory that left me so emotional. Fast forwar
Well, it looks like we have a 'genius' for a Pastor, God is Good!!!!...Go Big Red!!!ReplyDelete
You ARE a genious! With tears streaming down my cheek, I watched the beautiful video you created to document your story~ your wondrous walk through a miracle!
God has blessed us all through your story and I praise Him who has flowed his blessings down upon you, Laura, and your family.
I love you!
Jim, From the pictures of Dennis and me it looked like we were the ones recovering from massive brain trauma! It was a great idea to post the video. It was good to see you! I'm thankful that I was able to be there to see the miracle that God was beginning in you. Through my own health problems and yours 2 things shine as undeniable truths. First, we worship a great God. Second, family is the greatest gift God has given us. I love you!!! DaveReplyDelete
I will try to re-post this later. I tried to post in on Youtue and Facebook, but the song "no Doubt" is copyrighted and they will not let me post it with that song.ReplyDelete
