Twitter
Opened
My eyes
My disability
I've successfully hidden
Reading so many
Struggles
Has been
A learning experience
I couldn't any longer
Be blissfully ignorant
To suffering
That is inexcusable
Step into shoes
Not on them
You might bawl
Just thinking
God spared me
From hardships
I couldn't fully grasp
Between apathy
And empathy
Is where
I stand

  1. Dearest R's Rue,
    Yes, if we look around us and read and educate ourselves we soon learn that there are a whole lot of people far worse off than we are.
    It is good to be informed and we can be grateful for living in a country with excellent medical treatment options, however expensive.
    Hugs,
    Mariette

  2. Bless your heart! God loves you - just where you are! Take heart in that promise!

    In this world, sadly, there are many struggles. Thankfully, there are many Christians out there who are doing their best to shine His light and love one another.

    Take care, dear. God bless you, Net

  6. There will always be those better off than we are and worse -- and everyone's or anyone's fortunes can change on any given day. Empathy and heart. They should be essential operating equipment; too often, they are not.

  8. Regina this is so well spoken. If we did not have the Hope of God in us, we could well suffocate under the weight of the suffering in the world. Even if we cannot go out and right everything as we may like, we do have a most powerful tool to assist those suffering and that is prayer
    Blessings

  9. Ever since my husband got me divorced for the past 2 years, i v'e not been my self. I was reviewing some post of how i could get back my husband then, i saw a testimony shared by Marina Choas from SWEDEN about a spell caster named Dr. tunde. I contacted Marina Chaos to confirm about how Dr. tunde helped her and she clarified everything to me of how he helped her and that gave me the courage to get in touch with Dr. tunde for help. Dr. tunde assured me that my days of sorrows will be over within 48hours after he has finished with his work. I followed his instructions he gave to me because i had the believe, faith, hope and trust in him. Verily i say to you today that i and my husband are back together and i can proudly say and testify to the world of what Dr. tunde did for me. Contact him today via E-mail:(babatundesolutioncentre1@gmail.com) OR call him or whatsapp him +2348143581382 if you seek his help. Also specialize in treating all kinds of illness, HERPES VIRUS, HEPATITIS B, CANCER, BRAIN DISEASE, INFERTILITY, DIABETES AND MORE
