Mary looked at me like I was crazy when I told her that I wanted her to dump a bucket of icy water over my head.
“You might gasp and breathe in water and choke,” she warned. But after a few days of prodding she finally agreed to play her roll in the Ice Bucket Challenge. I was hoping that the ice cold water being poured over my head would cause me to jump out of my chair and run, like my Australian friend, Phil, but (SPOILER ALERT) unfortunately that didn’t happen.

  1. “Unshakable Hope” (Moving Forward)

    bends but does not break

    This is to you

    Who suffer sorrows, pains and losses

    Who struggle with afflictions in their many forms

    Whose contours are molded outside of society’s norms

    Seeming misfits who do not shirk nor hesitate when volunteers are sought

    Who understand the price paid for what was bought

    Take a step forward against a gale

    Answer a call in a storm

    Selflessly set sail

    To those unhaunted by the past

    Undaunted…

    In the “now”

    You who are a living inspiration to others

    You whom The Lord has favored

    And whom the enemy cannot smother

    You who show and boast in Jesus by your walk

    How great the witness of those “forgiven”

    Who continue on physically impaired

    Yet only see and tell of the Love of The Lord

    Without impairment in expressivity of gratitude

    Who tell of God’s grace and mercy

    How blessed are they?

    Instilled

    Not…distilled

    On eagle’s wings…

    you soar!

    2 Corinthians 12:8,9

    James 5:16
