Beyond The Surface

Standard

I dropped to my knees one night and I cried out, “Lord, use me.” HE has. I’m a voice for people with chronic illnesses and autoimmune diseases.

My will proves that determination trumps shortcomings. My constant gratitude proves being thankful for what you’ve been given rather than lost can turn a smile into a frown, pain into understanding, frustration into action, immobility into bonding time and poverty into appreciation for the little things.

On the outside, without my cane, I look just like YOU. On the inside I am a warrior fighting for every day. I have an invisible illness (igg4-rd) and so may someone else you know may have one of the more than 100other autoimmune diseases like diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis or sarcoidosis. So please look beyond the surface.
