pop and the Nfl draft

The NFL Draft is tonight.  It must see for me, but it's not the same sine my Pop Pop passed. It was our tradition to call each other to discuss the picks.  We'd always await the selection of his Miami Dolphins, and I the Colts during Peyton's time there. So I will wait and watch tonight to see who the Dolphins take, all the while thinking of him.
Have a blessed day!

acceptance

Acceptance is most humbling.  When I don't hide the braces, the shame, I am finally not bad-mouthing God.

me

Thankful for a blogging community that makes me realize I'm not alone in the world.
It's inspired me.

Having Cerebral Palsy and physical limitations, does not mean, I don't have feelings.  I do, I just hide them.   I want to believe the best in people. I want with all of my heart to trust folks. The reality isn't like what I described.  I am human, and it's a fact. Naive, yes. I just have to remember that as Pink Persistence said, 'it's better to pray for people than cuss them out'.
God Bless,
R

Grateful!
Hope all of you are well!

it's a good day!

It might be raining here in the South, but it is a great day!  The Lord is still on the throne, and I'm here.  There really isn't much more I could ask for!  I'm proud of who and whose I am.
Could I ask for some prayers for some friends!
My friend Cameron, is running the Boston Marathon, tomorrow!  So excited for him!
Leave him some encouragement if you choose!
He is chasing his dreams.  As for me, whenever you read this, you help me do the same.
God Bless,
R

surrendering control

I come to you to declare I have no control.  To relinquish such is a start.  God:  Thank you!  I realize no matter what it is I achieve, it matters not to who You are!
God Bless,

My prayer

Lord, as the Anthony Evans song, remind me, Forgive me!  Let me put Trust in the Only One who won't disappoint me, leave me despondent or indifferent.  As the preacher said last night, "we will all have to make an accounting of our lives at some point."  Realizing that fact, I just want my life to be one that honors God.  Regrets are not what I choose to have with my Heavenly Father.  I am not perfect.  Perfection is a recipe for failure.
I am weary, but He will give me rest.  He can do the same for you.
Love,
R

Humility and Grace in Gratitude

I'm grateful:  I can walk on a treadmill at an incline, my weights are the braces on my legs.

I'm grateful for that college degree:  it may have been ten years already, but only now, do I fully appreciate it.

For my parents:  Whose dedication and love astound me.

For Jesus:  The answer to my question, the faith to my doubt, the love to my disdain.

For the unanswered:  The reason to still dream, to believe, to keep going.

Love,
R

it is a blessing

It is a blessing to be in church.  It is a blessing to hear a sermon that validates what you are doing.  It is a blessing to not take the simple things for granted.  I'm just blessed and happy and joyful.  It is a blessing to be spiritually fed.
God Bless,
Regine

Yay for me

Life never ceases to leave me speechless.  I'm at the doctor, and I don't flinch when my mom tells him about the baclofen pump.  I see him write down CP, and i am kind of taken aback.  For that moment, I forgot I had CP.  I just looked and inwardly accepted the fact.  I could have never imagined the day that would have happened.  I'm crying now, because, without noticing I accepted the one thing i could not for so long.
Thank you God!

Holy

When you realize your realize your reality isn't som to dread
When you realize that your reality isn't what you thought, it's better
When your dreams drive you, not deter.
When you see that who you are is enough

May the God of peace be with you,
Regine

My goal is to be holy per Charles Stanley's suggestion.

Good Friday

It is Good Friday, and all I can think is how much love through pain was endured for my unsavory soul.  All I say is a thank you that doesn't seem  to suffice.  I'm listening to the Shane and Shane song "He loved my heart to death", and He did.
God Bless y'all,
Regine
