Welcome, new friend! Like you, I feel faith is such a HUGE part of my living with and getting through those difficult times with lupus.
I am of the personal belief that there have been thousands upon thousands of men and women who have fought and died for our country so that we MAY ALWAYS have the freedom to celebrate that which sustains us when we run out of ourselves and of our own "powers".
I can tell you that being sick is nothing we ever do gracefully, but I have learned that when we let go and let God, it becomes all too evident to me that there is a living God at work in our lives and in the lives of those who have helped me in so many ways.
So keep comin' back, we'll be here waiting with open hearts and a prayer for you always.
