It's been a long time since I have written and I am sorry for that, its been almost five years to the day that I was diagnosed. I was just a girl of sixteen almost seventeen at the time, now I am twenty one, an adult. I am young still yes, but being diagnosed with MS tends to age you quicker than it should, physically and on other ways as well. I guess the good thing is that it has taught me to be more patient and understanding of others, and it has showed me the importance of leaning on the Lord.
My faith has been my stronghold since my diagnosis. And at Christmas time, I tend to think about all Christ sacrificed for me more, so I think I can wear my scars with a little diginity perhaps pride, not in myself, but in the Lord for all he has done for me.
I am a walking, talking testimony of Christs love. Although I do have difficulty walking now, I can not go anywhere without my cane, at least I can walk, and I am thankful for that.
Some with more severe forms of MS are not as blessed as I am. This condition can be relentless, in some cases even fatal.
Thankfully I do not intend to let it cut me down, when I have just begun living.
I have alot of plans for my life, plans I have talked over with the Lord and I know that he wants me to use my life to reach out to others.
That is what I am doing, and I am going to continue to do.
I am going to fly with these broken wings made whole again.
God bless you and Merry Christmas
To Be Continued
