To clasp the hands in prayer
is the beginning of an uprising
against the disorder of the world.

Wanna find what was lost
Wanna be kind

According to the Ehlers-Danlos National Foundation, Ehlers-Danlos is "a group
disorder, wherein a mutation within a person's genetic make-up has led to a defect
in their connective tissue. There are at least six types of Ehlers-Danlos syndrome.
I have type IV, a rare disorder that primarily affects a person's vascular system which,
inherently means my arteries are thin-walled and must be closely observed.

...upon my discharge from the hospital, I realized I was not completely healed and was
on my way to a life viewed through a new set of eyes.

You see when I was growing up I had always been a true sap for emotion. I took nearly
everything to heart and I despised the careless and reckless way our society builds us up.
I was forever battling depression and questioning the purpose of this life and how I felt so
incredibly useless through God's eyes. I was saved when I was 15 and never felt I had a
true testimony. I never had problems with anything others thought were serious yet I always
felt overwhelmingly weak.

This most recent experience, however, was a slap into reality by the Father himself.

When I was in the hospital, I can firmly recall myself praying in and out of consciousness.
I would beg God to find me.

According to the New living Translation of the Holy Bible,the parable in Luke 15:4 reads,

"If you had one hundred sheep, and one of them strayed away and was lost in the wilderness,
wouldn't you leave the 99 others to go and search for the lost one until you found it?"

You see, God not only found me, but nurtured me back to health. This, then, allowed me to
understand that I may be weak and the doctors may be weak, but we are strong in the hands
of our Maker.

I now revel in the spontaneity of life. How trite matters seem when you are unshaven, unbathed,
sick and exhausted., clothed only by a gown and a set of bed sheets.

Life begins to radiate with nothing more than just that --life. Breathing, talking, sitting, caring, seeing.

I love nice clothing and toys as much as anyone else, but I don't desire those things like I once did.
I appreciate my mom. My dad. My friendships. This class. And especially my God. I appreciate being
able to take care of myself. To walk. To shower. To use the restroom alone. These things are so
elementary and yet so ungratefully forgotten that, they too, are gifts.

I understand now that a christian testimony is...the experience of having your eyes opened to the
heart of God.

Furthermore, and unfortunately, I still have Ehlers-Danlos.

Nevertheless, I now have a first rate idea of God's care and plans for each and every one of our live
and I do matter.

(You do matter)

Well, who's that a-writing? John The Revelator
Who's that a-writing? John The Revelator
Who's that a-writing? John The Revelator
A book of the seven seals.

Tell me what's John a-writing? Ask The Revelator
What's John a-writing? Ask The Revelator
What's John a-writing? Ask The Revelator
A book of the seven seals.

Father, who art worthy and holy
Bound up for some, Son of our God
Daughter of Zion, Judas the Lion
He redeemed us, and He bought us with his blood.

He redeemed us, and he bought us with his blood.

For behold, the winter is past,
The rain is over and gone.

The flowers have already appeared in the land;
The time has arrived for pruning the vines,
And the voice of the turtledove has been heard in our land.

The fig tree has ripened its figs,
And the vines in blossom have given forth their fragrance.

Arise, my darling, my beautiful one,
And come along!


Song of Solomon 2:11-13
(NASB)

When Jesus was at Bethany, a guest of Simon the Leper, a woman came up to him as he was eating dinner and anointed him with a bottle of very expensive perfume. When the disciples saw what was happening, they were furious. "That's criminal! This could have been sold for a lot and the money handed out to the poor."

When Jesus realized what was going on, he intervened. "Why are you giving this woman a hard time? She has just done something wonderfully significant for me. You will have the poor with you every day for the rest of your lives, but not me. When she poured this perfume on my body, what she really did was anoint me for burial. You can be sure that wherever in the whole world the Message is preached, what she has just done is going to be remembered and admired."

~Matthew 26:6-13 (The Message)

You doubt if there's a heaven
You doubt if there's a hell
You doubt if you'll remember
All the stories they would tell

It's a terrible feeling
Living and dealing with doubt
You've doubted your existence
You doubt if there's a truth
Your plan starts to crumble
But you cannot stand to lose

You're back where you started from
covering yourself in doubt

~The Call / lyrics Michael Been

Hey, King! Where's your crown, where's your Cadillac?
I've never seen a king before, on a donkey's back.

John Coltrane lets his saxophone do the talking, but included the words of his prayer in the album insert for A Love Supreme.


"Elation, Elegance, Exaltation. All from God. Thank you God. Amen."

A traveler encountered a guru on the road and asked him, "Are
you a deity?"
The guru said no.
"Are you a saint?"
The guru said no.
"Are you a prophet?"
The guru said no.
Exasperated, the traveler asked, "Then what are you?"
The guru answered, "I'm awake."

" I have two wolves fighting in my heart...
One wolf is vengeful, angry.
The other wolf is the loving, compassionate." said the old man.

'Which one is going to win?' asked the child.

'The one I feed.' answered the old man.

Later as he was sitting on Mount Olives, his disciples approached and asked him, "Tell us, when are these things going to happen? What will be the sign of your coming, that the time's up?"

Jesus said, "Watch out for doomsday deceivers. Many leaders are going to show up with forged identities, claiming, 'I am Christ, the Messiah.' They will deceive a lot of people."

"In the confusion, lying preachers will come forward and deceive a lot of people. For many others, the overwhelming spread of evil will do them in—nothing left of their love but a mound of ashes."

"If anyone tries to flag you down, calling out, 'Here's the Messiah!' or points, 'There he is!' don't fall for it. Fake Messiahs and lying preachers are going to pop up everywhere. Their impressive credentials and dazzling performances will pull the wool over the eyes of even those who ought to know better. But I've given you fair warning."

"So if they say, 'Run to the country and see him arrive!' or, 'Quick, get downtown, see him come!' don't give them the time of day. The Arrival of the Son of Man isn't something you go to see."

"But the exact day and hour? No one knows that, not even heaven's angels, not even the Son. Only the Father knows."

Say a prayer for the common foot soldier
Spare a thought for his back breaking work
Say a prayer for his wife and his children
Who burn the fires and who still till the earth

It always strikes me, and it is very peculiar, that, whenever we see the image of indescribable and unutterable desolation—of loneliness, poverty, and misery, the end and extreme of things—the thought of God comes into one's mind.

An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest.
Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him.
Then he said to them,
“Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me;
and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest.”

~Luke 9:46
(The New International Version)
