I Have The Best Readers!

A few years ago I put a link to my PayPal account on this blog, wanting to offset WordPress expenses, purchase upgrades to various graphics programs (which I primarily use to illustrate blog posts) and to help John with household expenses. You folks have been abundantly generous!

Recently I accepted the sad reality that my 32-year-old headstick wanted to retire. John had been patching it up with duct tape, gauze pads, headbands and washcloths for several years, but finally we realized that enough was enough. So I scoured the internet and found a guy through Etsy that custom made one for me. He needed to make a major modification in order to accommodate my scoliosis, thereby increasing the cost, and shipping was expensive because he’s in the Netherlands. But almost $300 later, I have a spanking new headstick with which I can serve the Lord through blogging!

So thank you, dear readers, for supporting me financially. This new headstick reminds me of your kindness and generosity. I pray that God will use it for His glory.

For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God. ~~2 Corinthians 9:12 (NASB95)

I’m Not Letting Go Without A Fight!

Not only do I type with a headstick, but I drive my power wheelchair with my face. Having a strong neck is crucial to my daily function, particularly as a blogger.

So you can probably guess that the severe neck pain that I’v been feeling since a week ago yesterday has alarmed me and John considerably.

We got Blue Emu last night. I tried my first application this morning, and so far I haven’t had any significant relief. Some reviews said it works immediately, while others said it takes a few days. Still others said it was a complete waste of money. So I’m asking the Lord to let it work for me. So that I can keep working for Him.
