I am more than grateful that I am alive, don't get me wrong, but what I did was stupid and I could have easily paid for my life, it brought me closer to the Lord, and led me away from the drugs and alcohol so in a strange way the accident, loosing my legs was a blessing, though there are some mornings, and nights when I wake up with that whole poor me attitude, thankfully the Lord shows me that what I have far surpasses what I don't and this earthly body is only temperal anyway.

I've been crazy busy lately, and have found myself in a constant state of prayer first for those affected by Gustav, and then those affected by Ike, Ike has proved to be the worse of the two storms, and it's scary just to see the damage, I have also contiunued to work with the kids at the church, and this week went to several schools to talk about the danger of getting in a car with someone drinking, I wore my prosthetics for the first part, but then I showed them exactly what the accident did to me, by taking them off, I hope it makes others think twice about doing the stupid thing I did.

I am more than grateful that I am alive, don't get me wrong, but what I did was stupid and I could have easily paid for my life, it brought me closer to the Lord, and led me away from the drugs and alcohol so in a strange way the accident, loosing my legs was a blessing, though there are some mornings, and nights when I wake up with that whole poor me attitude, thankfully the Lord shows me that what I have far surpasses what I don't and this earthly body is only temperal anyway.

I have church in the morning and once again I am going to be working with the kids, playing with them sharing with then of Jesus's love, and show them what the Lord can do, they often become fascinated with the fact that my "legs" come off and ask me to take them off, I don't mind, it is when the kids parents pull them away, and don't let them get an understanding of what it is like for me.

Well I am off to go read the Beth Moore book I am reading, and then I am going to head to bed in a couple of hours, church comes early, but I love church.

In Christ's Love

Kierra~

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Tx., Karen Lynn. :D

And I totally agree with Lois Christenson below! BAN ALCOHOL, PERIOD!!!!!!
Reviewed by Lois Christensen 9/14/2008
You have a great attitude about life. And you are teaching the kids to not do things that are harmful to them. I don't see why they cannot ban alcohol like they are banning smokihng. It does not make sense. Alcohol takes lives away from innocent people too.
