Am I disabled?
I may be physically different, but I am not defined by my disability. Moreover, I am not “disabled” from doing everything. Instead, I am passionate about living my life with the belief that I can do everything. I see it as a blessing that I am so unique that I can embrace my individuality and not have to try and “fit in” all the time.
I remember when we first moved to NY in my first year of marriage and I struggled to make friends; my husband and I comforted each other saying, “we’ll be freaks together!” (jokingly of course). That’s when I realised that there really is no “normal” and it is all down to perspective and how you stick together with the right people that are brought into your life for a reason – people who build you up and encourage you.
Am I religious?
Well, it depends on how you define it as. I value my relationship with God which hopefully is reflected in my relationship with others. I have never liked being categorised or labeled in any way. I guess I always felt special being born so unique and knew in my heart that the only label that was valid for me was, “chosen”.
I feel so free being the person I know I was created to be. I know that I am who I am because of the relationship I have with my creator who knows me because He chose me to be His child.
So who am I?
I am an imperfect human being with a heart and soul that I choose to fill with light that comes from the one source that I know is all good and all powerful with perfect love. I like to see myself as an agent with a “God-mission” walking on my path of life with a divine purpose to bring light and light the way.
I always do my best to treat everyone with love. If my heart feels a tug, then I respond with courage instead of fear. I am no better than anyone, but I am here to shine the light that fills my heart and soul. I am here in this fallen world to share the gifts that have been given to me.
My hope is to inspire you to be the extraordinary person you are meant to be and to show you how life changing it is to live in this freedom in knowing who you truly are and how extraordinarily loved you are.
Yes, I have been through some dark times…. discrimination, rejection, heartache, pain and loss; and as long as I am still in this broken world, there are still going to be times when I will need to fight and overcome. There was a time when I contemplated giving up completely as well, but there was always that voice inside my heart that comforted me saying that there was something greater planned for me.
I am living out that greater plan and I am ready to shine!
Ephesians 1:4-5 (NLT)
“Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure.”
Colossians 3:12-14 (MSG)
“Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.”
