PSALMS 139:14

I PRAISE YOU, FOR I AM FEARFULLY AND WONDERFULLY MADE. WONDERFUL ARE YOUR WORKS; MY SOUL KNOWS IT VERY WELL

QUOTE BY: MARTINA NAVRATILOVA “Disability is a matter of perception. If you can do just one thing well, you’re needed by someone.”

Hi all it’s me, so I guess you can tell what this article is going to be about LOL, DISABILITIES AND THE WORLD OF DISABLED PEOPLE… I know all my regular readers/followers are probably a little confused and are probably like what the heck, why have two headers? Why have the inspirational quote below the scripture verse? How could you change the look of the beginning of your articles. The scripture verse as your main headline on every article was the-book-of-roo’s statement piece, that’s what made you stand out from all the other blogs out there. If your saying that let me just say I know! You are so right, and I promise after this article I’ll never change it again🙏 The thing is, with this particular article I just felt it needed that inspirational quote even more than it needed the scripture, I almost wasn’t even going to put a scripture verse but after I started actually writing the article I than realized it still needed a scripture too so that’s when I decided ok I’ll just give it 2 headers LOL. I don’t know why it needed both but I just felt that’s where the lord was leading me and as I always tell you all, I always want to do what he’s guiding me to and not just what I think will get me the most hits on this blog or what I think will get me the most popularity points. I want to continually do what I feel his heart (the lords) is telling me, and what I felt his heart was saying today was to make that quote by Martina Navratilova the focus of this article, why? Because I felt this articles focus had to be centered around disabilities and disability awareness.

First off before I get deep into this article and it’s purpose, let me give a little update on me. I think the last time I wrote an article for this blog was around my birthday (august), so let’s start there. My summer was great, except for that minor hiccup at the end of July, I been doing really well. I havent been to active cause of Covid-19 but I’m doing what I feel I can do safely without putting me or my family in harms way. I did get vaccinated and so did most of my family, but we do have my niece to think about, she is only 10 years old so she is unable to get the vaccine right now so because of that I’m also limited on my activities because now when I do things I mostly do things with her and so I not only have to worry about my health but I also worry about hers too, and I never want to do anything that’s going to put my life and health or hers in harms way, so I haven’t done much this past year. How am I doing otherwise you ask? I am doing great, I haven’t been in the hospital since July, thank you JESUS🙏That guy named Jesus is just awesome isn’t he? LOL 🤪 don’t get me wrong, my health hasn’t been perfect but it also hasn’t been awful, let’s say it’s been manageable and at times I’ll even go as far as to say it’s been good. Other than my health not much new to report just been trying to enjoy my family and my life with my family LOL. Covid-19 hasn’t made that easy but we’re getting by and making the best of things. Book is great, should be out around New Years (for real this time).

What have I been up to you ask? Well for one writing and finalizing my book, secondly I been working hard to get my YouTube channel off the ground, and also my podcast, and speaking of my podcast it is really why I’m here, well partly why LOL. I recorded a episode a few months ago during ADA Anniversary (American with Disabilities act) it was their 30th anniversary, and so I recorded a episode with a fellow disabled friend his name is Tim Randles. we called the episode: what do the disabled feel like living in a world built around and for average “abled” body people? We discussed how we both felt in our younger years especially and we talked about different things that we both went through, and struggles that we both dealt with. After we recorded this I went to upload it but I had issues getting the podcast episode uploaded. I worked on it for weeks but still nothing seemed to be getting me any closer, I still could not get this thing to upload and so I ended up scratching the whole episode. I said: well it’s way to late to upload it now this was supposed to be for ADA 30th anniversary but it’s now a month past the anniversary so oh well I guess it wasn’t meant to be heard, but deep down I was heart broken that I couldn’t fix this because deep down I knew how important it was that this episode was heard but after weeks of trying I said: oh well I give up and I moved on with my life LOL. Well all of a sudden at the beginning of October my friend (the same friend who I recorded the episode with) he said: hey you know it’s dwarfism awareness month and he ended up writing this whole article on his own blog about dwarfism and when he wrote what he wrote I immediately said to myself, oh my gosh! This is my second chance to upload that podcast episode. I immediately got working on it and finally after doing some digging around I not only figured out why I originally could not get this thing to upload, but also figured out how to get it uploaded, and by October 4th, I think it was the 4th, I had the episode uploaded for all to hear, THANK YOU JESUS🙏 so if you all want to go listen to that you can by clicking the link👇 or by going to whatever application you listen to your favorite podcast shows and search THE-BOOK-OF-ROO, or you can just type in Roo and it should pop up by just typing that too, and once you search you should see not only our name but also our logo.

THE-BOOK-OF-ROO PODCAST LINK

As some of you know besides writing/blogging/vlogging and doing all the more serious things I do on social media I also have a tiktok page where I do more funny/quirky/silly things, things to just have fun and try to have something more childlike where I could focus on having a little fun and not be so serious. I also started the page because I wanted a outlet to show people they can be silly around people like me, and it’s ok to even mention our disability and maybe even acknowledge it😱

So when I made the page I purposely made every video title start with “the 2FT crippled lady” Now when I did that yes I purposely did it because I knew it be something that would catch people’s eye and catch them off guard a little, but never in a billion years did I think it would become the big deal that it’s becoming. About 2 months after I made the page a friend/family member came up to me and said: I like your videos but I’m not to happy that your calling yourself the “crippled” lady. I gave them my reasons for why I did that and also explained my views on that word and explained to them that the word was not a bad word. Well fast forward about 3 weeks and all of a sudden I started getting contacted by several people who follow me on tiktok and other social media pages, when I say several, I mean several, especially by DM (direct message) and all these people were saying the same thing, one woman even said to me, why do you have to use crippled why can’t you say unique lady, which like I said in my YouTube video👆 I find it is a little comical that people do not have a issue with 2FT lady, 2FT lady is not a issue at all, the only issue is crippled lady. I decided the only way to solve this problem was to face it head on, and so I made the YouTube video that is listed at the top of the page and I explain my views on this word “crippled”. Like I stated in the video, crippled is not a “bad” word, if you look up the word crippled it almost means the exact same thing as the word disabled, actually if you google the word crippled their explanation of that word is actually nicer sounding than the word disabled. The problem isn’t the word, or “words” it’s our outlook on the word and so I will continue to use the word “crippled” until people feel more comfortable about it. Like I said in the video, being disabled is not a terrible thing, yes there are aspects to it that are terrible but it in it self isn’t. I have still been able to live a very fulfilling life and my disability has not stopped me from doing anything I’ve wanted to do. Yes some things I’ve had to work harder than the average person but I’ve still been able to accomplish everything I’ve ever dreamed up.

No matter if your disabled or not I can almost guarantee that you all have had struggles, you all have had an ability that didn’t come perfectly, you have all been crippled in one way shape or form in your lives, you may not realize it but you have. Maybe your scared to ride a bike, maybe you have panic attacks, maybe you have financial issues, marriage issues, issues with your children, those are all forms of being crippled, just because my crippled-ness is more visible doesn’t mean it’s any different, the word isn’t the problem, the problem is us for giving that word so much power! Me being crippled is just a small piece of who I am. I am strong, courageous, and wonderfully made. That’s really all I have for today but after your done reading this reach out to me in the comments on this blog or on YouTube or in any of my various other social media pages and let me know your outlook on the word “crippled and let me know if you learned something from this article, as always thank you for reading this and for supporting me, I truly do appreciate it and am grateful for each and every one of you🙏 I love you all God bless and remember keep shining everyone! 😘

PSALMS 46:5

GOD IS WITHIN HER, SHE WILL NOT FALL; GOD WILL HELP HER AT BREAK OF DAY.

Hi all I know it’s been a few weeks since I have posted, I have a good excuse though lol. I am not going to write a huge blog because the VLOG is over an hour long so that should keep you occupied 😂 this week life kinda changed in the blink of an eye for me, but that’s pretty typical when fighting two life threatening diseases and being categorized as “terminal”. Over the weekend (July 24th) I woke up extremely sick, so sick that I had to be rushed to the ER and was than admitted into the hospital. They were telling me some pretty scary things when I first got there, but through it all, all I kept hearing was the Lord saying: I got you, don’t worry I got you, and even though I felt like crap, I still had this overwhelming peaceful feeling and all the Lord kept telling me is, Jackie don’t buy into the fear, I’m telling you I got you . I trusted in him from the second I got sick and still do now, so anyways watch the VLOG to find out all the gory details. Am I still in hospital? Am I home? Am I still sick? Am I healed? Do I need brain surgery? Did I have brain surgery? 😱 find out all those answers and more in this VLOG. As Always, thank you for the love and continued support and you will be hearing from me again very soon 😘

ROO YOUR 2FT TALL CRIPPLED LADY DOING A VLOG/BLOG & SHARING WHAT WISHBONE DAY IS.

1 PETER 3:9

DO NOT REPAY EVIL WTH EVIL OR INSULT WITH INSULT. ON THE CONTRARY, REPAY EVIL WITH BLESSING, BECAUSE TO THIS YOU WERE CALLED SO THAT YOU MAY INHERIT A BLESSING

Hi all it’s me, I’m back! Did you miss me? Hehehehe 🤪 this is going to be another short and sweet blog because I said most of what I wanted to say in my Vlog, which you can watch the Vlog at the link above 👆 the Vlog is mostly me talking about what wishbone day is and why the day is so important and special to me and my family and the entire O.I (Osteogenesis Imperfecta) community. I had such a good day and I truly do thank everyone who made it so special for me, you all are amazing and I’m so blessed to have you all, not many disabled people are as blessed as I am. There are so many people in the disabled community who do not have that, so many families give up their children who have O.I and so many people who don’t even have a support system, God blessed me beyond what I could have ever imagined when it comes to that stuff. Most of my family is whole heartedly in this fight called O.I right along with me, they are there not only cheering me on and uplifting me, but also caring for my every need, no matter if it’s a physical need or emotional, they are whole heartedly there with me and I truly do know how blessed I am for that. I have been in so many hospitals where I look around at the other patients and their so alone. One of the last times, not the last but one of the last, I was in the hospital getting ready for a very, very minor surgery and I had both my parents on each side of my bed and they were both arguing about which one got to take me into the operating room. Than I happened to look over in a bed next to me and there was this young boy sitting there, no older than 12-13 and he sounded very bitter, very angry and very alone and I happen to over hear the woman talking that was with him. She happened to be a caseworker and he was in foster care and he was having a pretty major surgery and you could just see how alone, terrified and lost this kid was and of course because he was scared he kept lashing out at the caseworker, but honestly the caseworker was so rude and selfish, and so, let’s get this over with so I could go home attitude that I would have lashed out at her too. It was all over her that she did not care one ounce about this kids well being, all she cared about was getting the job done so she could go home, and it broke my heart because all that kid wanted was for someone to act like they gave a crap about him, all he wanted was to be thought of. I don’t think he was even desiring love at that point, all I think he desired was for someone to show him compassion.

Than after I experienced that I went to surgery and when I came back there happened to be this beautiful little girl in a bed right across from me and she was no older than 7-8 years old and she had just come out of a even more major surgery, such a big surgery that she was on a ventilator, but she was very much awake and knew everything that was going on, and when she woke up from her surgery she was looking all around the room and started getting really anxious and so the nurse tried to calm her down by telling her she’s ok and that her mommy would be back as soon as she could but she had to go to work. This little girl was terrified and again was alone and had no one, and I know as your all reading this your probably starting to get all judgmental and probably saying: how dare that mother choose work over being with her baby girl, but you see the thing is it’s easy for us to judge, but we don’t know that families full story. I know the child’s home and mothers work was over an hour in a half from the hospital because I heard the nurse say it. That mother kept calling the hospital every five minutes so I know it was killing her not to be there. We don’t know why she chose work over her kid, maybe she’s a single mom, maybe she has more than one child, maybe she has to work her butt off to pay for her daughters medical needs, again we don’t know the full story but I can promise you she wasn’t absent just because she was a bad mother. So your probably asking yourself now what is my point to bringing up these kids stories? My point is not everyone is blessed enough to be born into a family that’s going to be able to be there the way we need or desire. I was blessed because my parents were an amazing team, they had an incredible partnership and so when one was down and maybe not able to juggle all those balls that parents who are raising disabled children have to juggle, the other one was right there to catch those falling balls. I never once went to a single surgery without either of them, they both were always there holding my hand.

Average, “abled” body people do not realize the things us disabled people have to deal with, from insurance, to education, to jobs, to medical things, to bills, to finding ways to pay for medication and equipment that we need. I mean for example, I can’t even easily go out and visit people in their homes like I used to because even that is becoming a huge challenge and people always think it’s me just trying to be lazy or pull the sick card but it’s not! Not only is it a challenge for me to go out because physically it drains the life out of me, but also it can become very stressful, not only is it stressful because of my medical problems but it is also becoming stressful because most houses and even buildings are not totally wheelchair accessible, especially in Ohio, heck not even our streets are accessible, and so that has become a major challenge, especially when visiting people at their houses. A lot of people say to me, well you figured out ways to do it when you were younger so why can’t you figure out ways now? But here’s the thing, when I was younger my family and friends were also younger LOL. It was very easy back than because if for example, I wanted to go visit someone at their house and they had steps. My family and friends would just carry me and my chair right into the house, but that’s not possible anymore because even though I never got any taller, I still got heavier LOL. I used to only weigh anywhere from 15-20 pounds, where now I weigh 39-42 pounds, that’s a huge difference, it’s a lot easier to carry 15 pounds up stairs than it is to carry 40 pounds, and people can’t carry my chair in anymore because my chair, with me and my oxygen weights close to 200 pounds, you try lifting 200 pounds. The chair is 100 pounds, the oxygen tank is another 15-20 pounds, the 2 bags I have strapped to the chair weights probably another 15-20 pounds, it literally has all my supplies that I need to survive and than my body weights 40 pounds so add that all up, that’s like 180-190 pounds! So there’s no way 60 something year old people could lift that, especially when one of those people are battling a terrible, debilitating form of arthritis. I love when people suggest for my 65+ year old parents just carry me into the house like I’m a toddler, number one thats not even possible anymore because of the fact that I weigh 40 pounds, I’m to heavy to even just lift, secondly I’m on oxygen so your not only asking for them to carry my body but than also my tanks, which I also than have to unstrap because their literally strapped onto my wheelchair and let me tell you, taking that a part is not easy, secondly where am I supposed to go if I’m carried in? Am I supposed to sit on my parents lap the entire time like I’m a little kid. I mean you all do realize how degrading that even is for people like myself, we’re not kids. I’m almost 35 years old! Do you really think I’d be comfortable sitting on my mommies lap still? Get real, I love my mom but come on people LOL.

These are just some of the challenges that disabled people face that society really has to open their eyes to. After that cop in the George Floyd case was sentenced I told all my friends, no matter who or what race they were. I was so excited to see justice was served and I was so excited to see some light shining on the way people of different races and especially the African American community are treated. I told my friends I really pray we achieve equal rights finally, but that African Americans and asians and even the LGBTQ community and every other community out there that’s fighting for the right to be treated as a equal. I feel your pain, I truly do, and I’ll be honest, when I said that, especially to a lot of the African American community, they got very upset and I think they thought because I was a white Girl I couldn’t possibly understand how they felt. They said I nor my family or friends knew what it was like to be murdered just because of the color of their skin and to a certain degree their right, but here’s the thing. Just like they keep telling me and all white people to educate ourselves they need to do the same and educate themselves on the disabled community. Because the reality is we were murdered, we may not have been murdered for the color of our skin but we were murdered for the fact that we looked and acted different. They basically treated us like caged animals, especially in the 30s-40s 50s 60s and even a little in the 70s. We were not only being murdered but were being locked up in literal cages and treated like we were a friggen monkey at the Circus, if you don’t believe me look it up for yourselves and no I’m not just referring to what hitler did to us, even though that was awful enough all by it self, somewhere around 40,000 disabled people were murdered by him, but not only was that awful but there are tons of other stories just like that where people murdered us and treated us like animals, and the sad part is a lot of it was said to have been done all in the name of science. There’s a great movie called breathe and it’s about this man who developed polio and the story was based on a true story. I won’t give the movie out plot out, but there’s a part in the movie where hospitals and society tell this man that he has to live the rest of his life in a medical facility, in the movie they told him and his wife that they didn’t have a choice, it was the law. If you were disabled and needing medical care you were automatically put in a facility and every single person just accepted that, until this man. This guy was one of the first to realize that even if you were disabled it didn’t mean your life was meaningless. This particular guy was not only young but he also had a wife and his wife just had a baby literally right when he started getting sick so he knew even though he was disabled he still had a future, he had his wife and more importantly his child and so he fought for the right to go home and fought for the right to be a father to his child. He made the doctors and hospitals figure out ways to run his equipment at home and he just enjoyed what time he had left at home with his wife and supposedly that’s where it all started, that’s where Doctors and the medical community started opening up their eyes to the fact that disabled people were not just some brain dead mutant lifeless pile of flesh but that we were living breathing human beings and we had desires, thoughts, feelings and dreams just like the rest of society.

So why bring all this up? Well for one to educate you all and to open your eyes to see that your not alone, no matter if your fighting racism or any of the other things I previously mentioned your not alone, and we not only feel your pain, but we desire to be respected and seen just like you all, but the difference with us is the fact that we’re a much smaller community than you all so we are overlooked and not heard the way most of you are heard and so that’s why, instead of fighting and debating one another about whose pain is deeper, let’s instead come together and help support each other, hold each other up and fight for each other’s right to be respected and seen. We the disabled community need you abled body people we need you to be loud with us and show the world that we are important too.

So how do we do that you might be asking? Well number one educate yourselves, secondly be loud, just like you all helped us be loud on wishbone day, be loud every day. Write our governors, our president, and everyone else who will listen and also share articles like this, share vlogs and support us, and if your in the work place and a disabled person comes in asking for a job, actually interview them and take them seriously, give them the respect to at least try to see beyond their disability.

I just wanted to touch on one last thing before I end, I read an article in our local news paper, actually my mom pointed it out to me, but anyways, in the article it was talking about how so many people are fighting on social media outlets because they feel their being silenced and I think it’s so sad because so many Christians are feeling that way too, but here’s the thing. I don’t think anyone’s deliberately silencing anyone, I just think we’re letting are imagination get the best of us. What I think their doing is trying to control the madness, and what I mean by that is their trying to control the fake news. There are so many conspiracy theories out there and they are just trying to shut those down. For instance so many people were spreading rumors that covid was fake and because so many people started sharing these conspiracy theories, people than started to believe in them and because people were believing them, those theories were than killing more people, I know for a fact this virus is real, I have lost some of my friends to this virus, I also almost lost a man who is like an uncle to me so I whole heartedly know it’s real. The whole capital riot, that all was put together by using social media, where again people were murdered and that all could have been avoided if the owners of social media just controlled things better, so now that’s what their trying to do. Unfortunately they don’t have a radar that can just tell them this dudes normal and that dudes a wack job, trust me I’m sure they would love to have a radar like that, but unfortunately they don’t. All they have is algorithms. What that is, is a program that tracks everyones moves, it tracks what words we use, how we use them, what kind of articles we post, and what it does is than calculates everything and if, for example you post an article that has been shared 500,000 times and yet they have gotten 300,000 reviews saying this article is fake news, than that program automatically shuts that article down and it can no longer be shared, because to the computer program it’s a site that is considered potentially harmful to its users. That’s how all this works it’s not “social media” shutting stuff down exactly, but honestly it’s you and me, because theirs people on the net who purposely keep reporting certain things so that it looks like it’s social media shutting stuff down, but in reality its “trolls” (computer hackers/nerds) putting all that in motion to make these conspiracy theories look more real and justifiable, and the reason president trump got booted off most of social media is because he likes to fight back, which sometimes yes can be a good thing, but some times you have to learn the right ways to fight back. I don’t like to get into politics but the fact he made fun of a person with a disability was heart breaking to me and it’s heart breaking to see so many people who call themselves Christians and who say they support me but than also are supporting a person who straight up mocked a person for having a disability. I would like to ask you, if it was any other human making fun of a disabled person, and let’s go a step further, let’s make it personal, if this person was making fun of me would you all still be justifying the behavior? And please don’t tell me he wasn’t making fun of a disabled person because he was, he was bending his fingers and hands and talking like he was slurring his words because he was mocking a man who was disabled. I have bent arms, when I talk my words don’t come out clear, I don’t slur my words but because I have a bent jaw and no top teeth I definitely have a lisp and my words sound all muffled when I speak, I know this about myself, I’m not ashamed of it. I am someone who has almost died a dozen times so do you really think I’m going to care about my looks or the sound of my voice LOL, HECK NO! I have been through hell and back keeping this body of mine kicking so I’m going to love every ounce of it no matter what and I’m going to see myself the way christ sees me, but my original point to saying all that is, would any of you who know and love me be ok with someone mocking me like that? I already know the answer is no you wouldn’t be ok with that, so my real question is if we wouldn’t be ok with that in any other way, shape or form, than why are we trying to convince ourselves that trump mocking.another disabled person is ok?

Like I told a few of my friends, if you want to support trump great go ahead I’ll support you, if you want to fight back and help him get on social media again, great more power to you, but until that moment happens just calm down, stop getting yourselves so upset that your making yourselves sick, and stop throwing a tantrum and stomping your feet on the ground like a 5 year old and saying on social media, I’m not coming back on my page till Trump is back! Really guys? Like really? You really think that’s going to achieve what you want. There’s certain rules everyone has to abide by in the world of social media, it’s not just trump, we all have these rules. When I was a kid? I lost one of my accounts for not following the rules and I was warned just like he was warned, but I ignored the warnings and eventually lost my account and that’s exactly what happened here. He broke the rules, it took me 2 years before I could get my account back,so what their doing to Trump is not uncommon and it’s not because he’s “trump”, if anything their trying to treat him like they would anyone who breaks the rules, trust me even though they don’t agree with his political views, it’s killing them to ban him, you know how much money their losing, trust me their desire to make their millions trumps (no pun intended) their desires to stand for their political views. So instead of being so angry that you throw a tantrum do your research and make sure the outlets your going to, to read this research is reliable sources, and once you do, if your still frustrated and angry and if you still feel your being smothered and silenced than just fight back. Humble yourselves enough to be still and know he is God and he will work all things together for good and he will teach you that some times the best ways to fight back and shine his light is just to be still and love, live out love, it’s easy to love those who love you back, but can you be loving to those who you may think doesn’t deserve it? That’s what being a Christian really is and I’m sorry to say but most Christians are failing this challenge and it’s breaking the Lords heart. So do what 1 Peter 3:9 says. Let’s really be what we’re called to be!

Wow this Vlog/blog was much longer than I anticipated sorry, but once I started writing I just felt the Lord telling me to add more and more LOL. I hope you all have the patience to read all this LOL. God bless, I Love you all and you will be seeing me again real soon 😘

GALATIANS 6:2

BEAR ONE ANOTHER’S BURDENS, AND SO FULFILL THE LAW OF CHRIST.

Hi all, I know I’m back again 😱 LOL, and I have another Vlog to show you. In this Vlog I share a story with you all of something that recently happened to me and my parents. Things like what I share in this Vlog are so common for people with disabilities, some of us go through this type of thing on a daily basis. Usually when this kind of stuff happens the “disabled” person is on his or hers own. I on the other hand am very blessed because I have an amazing support system surrounding me and holding me up on a daily basis so things like this do not effect me as badly is it can an average, “disabled” person. In this particular moment that I share about in my Vlog I will admit, even though it is easier for me than a average “disabled” person to handle stuff like this, in this particular moment it was still terrifying to even me for many reasons, I share some of those reasons in this Vlog. So check out this Vlog and share it with your friends. I hope when you watch this that your eyes get open just a little wider and you realize how hard life can be at times for people like myself, and even if we are always chipper and have a smile on our faces, like myself, it doesn’t mean we don’t struggle, it doesn’t mean we don’t feel overwhelmed at times, because we do, I do, but as far as myself, I never allow it to control my mood, I never allow the trials of life to steal my joy. So maybe next time you feel anxious or overwhelmed because your 5 minutes late to a birthday party or because you got a parking ticket, you might just realize how trivial those things are in the big picture, and I pray you stop allowing minor, lame things like this to steal your joy. If you feel overwhelmed put on some music and start dancing, watch a funny movie, pray, worship the lord, have church right there where your standing and just do everything in your power to drown out the darkness that’s trying to eat you alive.

life is hard, God never promised it be easy, so keep pushing through that tunnel till you see the light because I promise you, once you do see that light you will find relief like you never have before. I know everyone is scared right now, we’re all going through our own trials and tribulations but hang in there cause Jesus has the final say in all this. Alright guys that’s all I have to write for today, I really didn’t plan on writing at all, my purpose was more to share the Vlog with you, once you watch it if you could give your feed back I’d be really appreciative🙏

THIS IS DEDICATED TO THE LEGEND CARMAN (CHRISTIAN SINGER)

JOHN 8:12

WHEN JESUS SPOKE AGAIN TO THE PEOPLE, HE SAID, “I AM THE LIGHT OF THE WORLD. WHOEVER FOLLOWS ME WILL NEVER WALK IN DARKNESS, BUT WILL HAVE THE LIGHT OF LIFE.”

Hi all, bet you didn’t expect me back this soon again, hehehehe, see I told you I was going to try to be better and get on more.

I will admit though, it’s a lot easier to make little Vlogs than it is to make blogs, so like I said before, now that I found a new and much better system I’ll be making a lot more appearances on this site.

If you watched the Vlog already you know why I’m here, I’m on here to talk about one of the greatest Christian singers of my time, that persons name is Carman Domenic Licciardello, he was mostly known as just Carman though, that was his “stage name”. He died on February 16th and when I heard about his passing I was so sad and I knew I needed to do something to honor him on my page, he was just way to big a part of my life not to.

He is the one who introduced me to not only great, creative Christian music but also great worship music, my love for music started with this guy. I remember there, were 2 artist my dad introduced me to when I was younger, one was Rebecca St. James and the other was Carman, I loved both these artist but there was something that just pulled me to Carman, I bought every album he ever created from 1986 to today and some I played so much I burned them out lol. I met him multiple times, I met him so many times that he actually started to recognize me lol, but the first time I met him was probably my most memorable. I was at a CD/book store (for those who don’t know what a CD is, it’s a little round disc that plays music LOL) anyways I was at this store waiting in line to get his autograph but there were sooo many people that we actually started to think maybe we should leave because at that time I was even more fragile than I am today and so we were scared with how crowded it was getting and how small the store was that I might get bumped into and if that happened it could be severely damaging for me, like having to be hospitalized. Well just as we were thinking about leaving his manager and him seen me waiting in line and I think they could tell my mom and grandma were a little nervous about me being in that crowd so his manager comes up to us and says excuse me are you waiting to meet Carman? We said we were and he said follow me and he takes us to this back room where Carman was sitting there in his little blue suite looking all jazzy and cool, and my grandmother started drooling all over the poor guy LOL, but I have to say that was one of the most memorable moments I ever had with a Christian artist. He just sat and talked with us and took pictures, and gave us posters and it was just so awesome and such a special experience especially at that time, because back than Christians and especially churches didn’t really do much to help or encourage the disabled and so that moment was huge for me because it was the first time a Christian actually took time to make me feel special and most importantly accepted me and my family for who we were. He didn’t try to pray the disease out of me or quote every healing scripture but he just loved on me and my family and at that time that was soo needed and to be honest I only experienced that type of thing one other time and that was when I met the Shocklee’s. I know I bring them up a lot but this is partly why, because it is so rare to be seen in the Christian community as a average human being, sadly most just focus on wanting to “fix us” or excuse me I mean “heal us” lol 😂 not many people know this but right before Carman got cancer, literally I mean like 2 days before, he was supposed to meet me online and allow me to interview him on this site, THE-BOOK-OF-ROO blog. I had reached out to him about a week before his diagnosis and he did respond and he told me he’d love to be a part of what I was doing and I was supposed to meet him on a few days later where I than was going to interview him, but 2 days before the interview I had heard about the diagnosis and so right away I contacted him and of course I told him how sorry I was and that I’d be praying, but I also told him to please not worry about the interview and to please just take care of himself, and at first he kept insisting he could try to still make it happen but I told him if anyone understood his position it was me and so I told him not to worry about it we would have another opportunity when he felt better, unfortunately that opportunity never came, and I figured it probably would never come to be honest but not because of a reason like this, I thought if I lost the opportunity it be because my health declined, it just goes to show you, no one knows their future. Carman blessed me so much over the years and my heart is very heavy and sad to know I’ll never see him in concert again in this world, but hopefully I will see him in heaven where we can both worship our king together Rest In Peace Carman, the world of Christian music will never be the same without you 🙏

I also just want to say a quick thank you to my Brother Jason Yafanaro, I don’t know if you noticed but the Microphone you see in the corner of my video, that Microphone was purchased by my brother Jason, he had seen me mention it on my social media pages and right away, I mean literally within like 2 minutes he went and purchased it for me and it arrived at my door exactly 24 hours later, gotta love Amazon baby LOL. So to my big brother thank you for blessing me, it has made the recording process so much easier. I am very blessed to have so many people who support me, trust me I know, I know there are not many people, especially disabled people whohave that, so I truly want to make sure I always show how appreciative I am towards everyone who not only blesses me, but supports me, so again thank you Jason and thank you to all those who continually support and encourage me daily 🙏

One last thing, I know I said this in the Vlog, but I just want to say, THANK YOU JESUS WE JUST CELEBRATED OUR 1ST ANNIVERSARY ON PATREON!!!

WHY ARE PEOPLE SO ANGRY? ROO your 2FT disabled ladies VLOG

Posted February 2, 2021 by JACKIE
Categories: MY LIFE AND WHO I AM, Uncategorized

1 JOHN 1:6

IF WE CLAIM TO HAVE FELLOWSHIP WITH HIM AND YET WALK IN THE DARKNESS, WE LIE AND DO NOT LIVE OUT THE TRUTH.

Hi all I’m back, I know so shocking to be hearing from me so soon after my last blog article LOL. there’s a reason for that though 🤪 I’m not here to write out this huge blog but I am here to say a little hello and also share a video with you all that I recorded last night.

Lately social media has just been spewing out anger and hatred especially from my fellow believers in Christ, so I wanted a chance to share somethings that have been laying on my heart, and also ask you all a big question, WHY ARE YOU SO ANGRY?

We’re supposed to be the light in the dark, we’re supposed to be taking care of the hurting not digging a grave for them! Lately I just been so disappointed in how everyone keeps attacking one another. It’s not the end of the world guys we’re not being “raptured”. Jesus said he’d come like a thief in the night, so trust me this moment is not it LOL. Could he be saying it’s time to get our crap together because the clock is ticking? Yes but that doesn’t mean he’s coming in seconds or hours, could he, is it in possible for that to happen? Of course not, that’s why he says we have to be ready at a moments notice, but being ready isn’t meaning to fight with the world, it means to focus on ourselves, take care of our hearts, our personal heart. We can be there to witness to others but we cannot force Christianity on anyone.

All we can do is be a light in the darkness, but truly be the light, don’t add to the darkness but drown it out with your light, with the light that shines in you. Walk out the love of christ, we’re not in war with the government or with man, but we’re in war with the enemy and the only way to beat that is by blinding him with the light that is in you.

I know this video I recorded is not going to be popular and I know I’m probably going to make a lot of enemies with this video, but please know I’m not your enemy and I respect you so I ask you respect me and even if you don’t agree with my opinion that’s ok, but please try to respect me and don’t come at me wanting to argue cause I’m not dealing with childish tantrums and will not feed into that behavior.

To those who watch this video enjoy, I pray you hear what I’m saying in this video and that you listen with your heart and not your emotions. I pray we have strength to get through the rest of these battles/debates with an understanding heart instead of hatred, we are not each other’s enemies we are brothers and sisters in Christ! You are my family so no matter what I love you all and will talk to you guys again soon.

P.S this is what I’m going to try to keep up with doing, even if I don’t have time to write out full blogs I will make and post videos/Vlogs on my YouTube channel and add a mini blog to go with the videos.

ENJOY THE VIDEO!!! 😍😍😍

2020 HAS IT BEEN A BLESSING OR CURSE?

MATTHEW 2:10

WHEN THEY SAW THE STAR, THEY WERE OVERJOYED.

Hi all, long time no see. I been writing just not for this website/ blog LOL, I been working my butt off for my book it should be out around May, if all goes the way I’m hoping than around May 6th . Even though I been busy focusing all my spare energy on my book I did want to get one blog article in before this new year started. Especially since it’s been such an incredibly crazy, insane but yet great year!

I know a lot of people are probably rolling their eyes as they read this because your all probably thinking one of two things. Number one, I’m either blind to the chaos and pain our world and country is enduring, or number two, that I’m being rude, thoughtless and disrespectful by seeming like I don’t care about what everyone’s endured this year, and if I’m right and you are thinking those things, I’d like to set the record straight right now and say you are WRONG! you couldn’t be any more wrong! The thing is, yes I do see everything that is happening, EVERYTHING! Not just the pain and darkness but I see everything, the full picture.

And the full picture is we are far more blessed than we realize. I know there is not one person in this world and especially our country (USA) who hasn’t gone through their own personal version of hell this year. I know we all have felt like we just woke up one day and our worlds just crashed down around us, I get it, I understand it.

I have gotten several letters, especially from woman begging me to pray for them because they have lost their husbands to covid or their sibling or parent. I’m getting messages from people begging me to pray because their loved ones are on ventilators and they can’t be with them, I’ve had people even tell me how heart broken they were to have to watch their loved ones take their last breathes over a stupid smart phone or tablet because they couldn’t physically be with them, which to me, someone who has physically been at deaths door. I don’t know if I could have ever handled that as well as these people have. All I did this year was pray that God held me and that I didn’t end up sick, because I did not want to end up in a position like that. One of the things besides God that has kept me going during times like that is the love and support I’ve had from my family and friends and the fact that they were all physically there and able to surround my bedside with love. Having their love and support and having them to lean on is what gives me peace and I believe God has kept me safe this year because he knew all that.

I have also had people begging me to pray for them because their losing their business/jobs, or homes and people are scared because they can’t even put food on the table to feed their family and especially kids. These are just some of the heart breaking stories people have sent me. People are hurting, I get it, I feel it, but the thing that hurts me most is seeing how angry our world has become, how we’re all wanting to fight one another, and that’s so, so sad because here’s a news flash for you all. BEING THAT ANGRY AND HATING EACH OTHER IS ONLY GOING TO MAKE OUR LIVES THAT MUCH MORE DIFFICULT! Every time I have posted any postings that were joyful or optimistic I have gotten slammed with hateful comments and messages, it was getting so bad that after awhile I just stopped giving my opinion because I knew if I fought back with these type of people than I’d be stooping to their level and I knew God created me to be better than that. So for awhile now I haven’t said much on my pages, I’ve just prayed and loved on people.

This past week I opened my Facebook and seen all kinds of posts about the “Bright Star” On December 21. So I started doing research on what this meant, basically the way I understood it, Saturn and Jupiter align into a beautiful “bright star”, and what’s more incredible is some people believe this is what happened and is the star that shined over Bethlehem and over the exact location that Jesus was born and this star was how the wisemen found Jesus. By the way this phenomenon hasn’t happened and hasn’t been visible in 800 years, 800 YEARS PEOPLE!

Not only that but I don’t know if you all noticed but there has been several rainbow sightings caught on camera this year, much more than I’ve ever seen, and they all have been so beautiful and picture perfect! So by now you might be saying: ok Jackie that’s all sweet but what is your point? What does all my pain and heartache have to do with stars and rainbows?

My answer is, it has EVERYTHING TO DO WITH IT! the star was in a way our guiding light and we all know rainbows are a sign from God. When Noah built his ark and God flooded the earth and destroyed everything after it was all said and done God promised Noah he’d never allow that to happen again and he showed him a rainbow and said that the rainbow would be our symbol from God that he will never let us endure a flood that big again, he will never let us drown,

It took 800 years for Saturn and Jupiter to align just perfectly enough for the bright star to appear, not only that but the weather also had to be just right for it to become visible for us to see it! Do you not comprehend how amazing that is yet? Do you think it was a coincidence that God allowed that to happen in 2020 of all years! Of all years he chose to have it be visible this year! I believe he purposely set that star to shine this year to give us hope, to prove to us that he’s there guiding us, his star is guiding us. He is walking with us, he is hurting with us.

I know I’m going to get people that will say, well why couldn’t he just take our pain away instead? why couldn’t he just take covid away, or why couldn’t he just save my loved ones, or save my job at least, I’d much rather have that than some star. To all those people, I get it, I get your frustration, I get your anger, I get it, I really and truly do, but some times faith isn’t easy. Relationships in general are not easy, we all have stuff to learn about our friendships, our partners, our loved ones and people forget Jesus is our partner too. He is our friend just like our natural “earthly” friends are our friends and so we still have things to learn and we don’t have all the answers with Christ just like we don’t have all the answers with our natural friends. Relationships are hard, trust me I know lol, and the reality is our relationship with Jesus can be just as hard.

As some of you may remember from reading previous blogs I have many stomach/digestive issues and over the past few years those issues have become more difficult, gradually these issues have basically taken over my social life. When this all first started it took a lot out of me to go out, but I would not accept that I had to give certain things up. I felt if I kept pushing than eventually I’d be fine. I had jesus and so all I had to do was keep fighting and magically it would all get better. I kept going back and fourth to my Doctors crying out to them, begging them to do something, than when I was I want to say around 31-32 maybe (I’m 34 now), I went to a doctors appointment and in a nice way my Doctor basically told me it was time to suck it up and accept what was happening and face that there was nothing more they could do at that time, of course I’m paraphrasing it all and of course he’d never speak to me that rudely, but in his nice, sweet “Doctor” way I knew that’s what he meant, and the second he said it I knew in my heart he was right because the Lord had already started showing me that. So I remember after the Doctor spoke to me I went home and just prayed for days and I begged the Lord to work on my heart and show me what was happening, I remember I told him, I don’t understand this, I know I’m not dying but yet I feel so awful that I also wasn’t able to fully live! And that was starting to make me very angry.

So I asked the Lord, Lord why are you keeping me alive just to basically rot, because that’s what I felt I’d be doing at that moment in time if I couldn’t actually do things and enjoy life, but than the Lord spoke to me and started showing me the most incredible lesson he’s ever taught me and that was to surrender!

Some times as Christians especially we think we’re not being strong “Christians” if we’re not continually fighting, but the thing Gods been teaching me is that some times just surrendering and accepting the battle around us is the way to win the war. I had to learn to accept that I couldn’t do the things I once could. If I’m able to leave my house once every 3-4 months that’s saying a lot, and yes in a way it still does hurt and can still be frustrating but also learning to accept that and not forcing myself to fight so much has been such a blessing and I think it’s actually given me more life than taken it. Because before I was fighting so much and pushing myself so hard that I think I was making my sickness worse, I think because I was continually trying to fight it, it was getting my body so run down that I couldn’t fight anymore and so it was making me go into these vomiting attacks more and more, to the point I was making myself so sick and running my body down so much that I was being rushed to the ER 2-3 times a week! Till finally I just said that’s it I had enough! Eventually I ended up having surgery to clean my stomach out a little bit, which I know some of you probably don’t understand what that means but that’s ok, not important to the story LOL. The point is I had surgery to help relieve some of the discomfort, did the surgery “cure” me? heck no, did it help a little bit? yes, but what really helped is me accepting that I had to stop fighting. I have kept myself out of the hospital for 2 years and I believe it is all because of the fact that I stopped pushing myself so much. Do I miss doing things, at times? yes, but honestly if it’s between doing stuff again and going back to putting myself through that trauma just so I could say I was “doing things”, it’s just not worth it to me anymore, instead I just learned to change my point of view. Find ways to feel like I’m “doing things” without leaving my house. It’s why I do Facebook lives, it’s why my mom and me sell jewelry to earn money for my book, it’s why I diamond paint, it’s why I met people in disabled groups and yes I’m careful on who I meet, but honestly I feel like I’m more fulfilled now and busier and have a better and bigger social life now than I ever did, I’m more content now than I ever was. So what I’m trying to say through my very long winded story, it’s that some times we have to just step out in faith and blindly walk with him and just trust!

Its funny because my best friend always tells me I have rose colored glasses on and I just need to take those off and realize the reality of the times were in and every time he says it I just laugh and he hates when I do that, but the things is the reason why I laugh is because, my what he calls “rose” colored glasses are my guiding light, they are what gives me peace, because it’s not that I’m wearing, what he calls “rose” colored glasses, but instead I’m wearing “love” glasses baby, and there is nothing better than that.

I will continue to be guided by love, his love hasn’t failed me yet so I will wait on my father, because I know he has a plan and a purpose and I know his ways are higher than mine. The JOY OF THE LORD IS MY STRENGTH AND I PRAY IT IS YOUR STRENGTH TOO.

Ok all that’s it for today. Thanks for reading and please have a very blessed Christmas and New Years and please be safe,and remember to keep focusing on love, joy and faith because I promise you, that’s all you will need to get through this pandemic and Year…

One last thing, if you all could please be praying for my friend and fellow “OIER” (Osteogenesis Imperfecta friend). This friend of mines name is Michaela Davert and right now she’s going through one of the hardest battles she will probably ever go through. She’s having a spinal fusion, (I think that’s what it is called, I apologize if I’m wrong) but it’s a very intense and major surgery. This woman walked around with like 10+ nails, large nails sticking out of her head, it looked like a crown of thorns like what they stuck in Jesus head, she had these giant nails sticking in her head for over 3 months and that was the easy part of the process she says. The dangerous part is what she did today, so dangerous that there was a chance she could die on the table! She and us all are believing for a complete and perfect recovery process. We’re praying surgery goes perfectly. She believes she had to have this surgery to extend her life expectancy. Without the surgery she was losing lung capacity so she felt she had to have it to extend her Life, and she has many dreams and desires, she’s young yet and has so many things she desires to do with her life and I believe she will accomplish every one of her dreams as long as she keeps fighting and believing not only in herself, but also in the Doctors and most importantly in Christ. So please be praying for my friend because as she says, life is worth fighting for😁

The book of roo

Luke 21:34-36

BE CAREFUL, OR YOUR HEARTS WILL BE WEIGHED DOWN WITH CAROUSING, DRUNKENNESS AND THE ANXIETIES OF LIFE, AND THAT DAY WILL CLOSE ON YOU SUDDENLY LIKE A TRAP. FOR IT WILL COME ON ALL THOSE WHO LIVE ON THE FACE OF THE WHOLE EARTH. BE ALWAYS ON THE WATCH, AND PRAY THAT YOU MAY BE ABLE TO ESCAPE ALL THAT IS ABOUT TO HAPPEN, AND THAT YOU  MAY BE ABLE TO STAND BEFORE THE SON OF MAN.”

Hi all, sorry it’s been so long since I’ve last written, I just been so busy I’ll be honest I just haven’t had much time to sit down and write for the blog because any writing I been doing has been for the book, but I do feel bad about leaving you all hanging for such long periods of time, so I’m thinking of starting a podcast and doing short little messages once a week. I am thinking for right now, till the book is done it might be my best way to still share my heart with you all and also still update you all about how I’m doing, and where I’m at in the book without having to sit down and actually write something out. I can just grab my microphone, say a few words like I’m grabbing my phone to call a friend and be done with it. When you have sat at a computer screen for hours at a time working on a book than the last thing you want to do is get back on at night and start writing all over again, just being honest lol. I love you all but that is a lot of writing lol, but like I said I also feel so bad for leaving you all hanging for 6-7 months at a time, so I’m thinking the podcast thing is the best way to go for me to still connect and keep my relationship with you all. I am not saying I’ll never write for the blog, I will still do articles here and there like I’m doing now, but I’m thinking a podcast could be something I could do more consistently. So there’s my thoughts on that, but you all tell me what do you think? Good idea or bad idea? now that we got that out of the way let’s move on lol.

I know you all are probably wondering how I’m doing health wise, well unfortunately I lost my winning streak of not having any hospital admissions 😢 as you all know, when I wrote you last I told you I had gone almost 2 years without being admitted into any hospitals, but I also told you I was not sure how much longer that roll would last because even though I hadn’t been in the hospital for an admission, it did not mean I wasn’t having medical complications, to read more about the complications I was having at that time just  click here but anyways like I said, because I was having those complications I knew there would be a hospital admission in my future some time soon, it’s not that I was being negative, it’s just when you been dealing with certain health issues for as long as I have, you come to know your body very well, and even though I have faith, that doesn’t mean I have blind folders on, like I’ve said in many of my articles, there is a difference between having faith and living in denial.

Turns out my suspicion of knowing I could end up in the hospital was spot on because Christmas night, yes you heard me right, CHRISTMAS NIGHT! I was sick literally all day on Christmas but I was still able to function and it was still controllable, than about 11:45ish at night, I had literally just gotten in bed, had only been in bed less than a hour, but when I got in bed I said ok let’s try to fight this just till morning so my Mom could at least get a nights rest, because she had been running around like a crazy person trying to put a nice Christmas together for us all, well like I said, thankfully I got through the actual Christmas without any real damage being done to Christmas. I will admit though, that day was one of the hardest days of my life, and I never fought something off as hard as I did that day. I was trying to make it one more day because I had a friend coming over the day after Christmas and he was traveling like an hour out of his way just to see me and we had literally been planning this visit for years, this person has been there for me whenever I’ve needed and truthfully I never had a friend stand by me the way this person has, so that visit was extremely important to me, so between trying to let my Mother rest and recover and me trying to fight to stay healthy to see my friend, it just all got to much for me, about 11 that night I called my friend practically crying telling him I had to cancel our visit, and what was worse about canceling these plans is, he does not live in the same state as me, he was only here to visit family for Christmas and see me, so I knew if I canceled I’d probably be losing the opportunity to spend time with him, But I also knew with how I felt I just had to cancel, because I didn’t want him driving 1-2 hours out of his way to see me and than me be laying on the floor puking on myself and being so sick I couldn’t speak, and I knew by how I felt already that there was a huge chance that would happen, so I called him all upset, of course he told me not to worry, just focus on my health and we will figure out how to meet up another day, he promised me that because he was going to be in Ohio (which is where I live) for another 2 weeks that he’d find a way for us to visit even if he had to visit me in the hospital, so I said ok fine I surrender, let’s cancel our visit for now. Literally I don’t even think it was 15 minutes after I talked to him that everything just came crashing down on me. I was still trying to fight it till morning so that my Mom could get some sleep, but by 11:45pm I knew I could no longer fight this on my own and I knew I was about to throw up, and being alone when feeling like I have to vomit can be very dangerous for someone like me, because I cannot sit-up so I could literally choke to death if someone isn’t with me, and I knew by how I was feeling that was going to happen, so I immediately grabbed my phone and called my Mom, of course I said I know this is the worst timing possible but I’m going to throw up, trust me it’s going to happen! At first I’m not sure she took me to seriously because for the past few months prior to this moment I had a lot of false alarms, so I think at first she assumed this was another false alarm, than she turned my light on and seen how grey I was, and knew it was real. She grabbed me put me in the living room and within 20 minutes I was violently throwing up, and sadly it was bile that I was throwing up, which meant there was no denying it, what I had been complaining about for over a year, I was right about, my intestines were getting cut off again and I was not digesting food properly. After a few hours my parents got me to the emergency room, which the emergency room was a whole mess in it self but I’ll explain that story in a future article or podcast, but after a few hours in the emergency room they got me stable. The reality is unfortunately I’m going to go through this from time to time, and every day since that day has been a massive struggle, my body is so exhausted and beat up right now I can’t even go anywhere, I’ve only left my house twice since Christmas and both times it took so much out of me that I was breaking in to tears just finding out I had to go somewhere, it’s not easy when you get to a point where you are so sick that you break down in to tears when finding out you have something as simple as dinner plans or sone kind of outing where you physically have to leave your house to go to it, it is especially not easy for someone like me who was so active and social. I love going places, which is why I still try to fight to go out, but when your so sick that your body physically won’t let you enjoy the things you once loved, that’s a huge pill to swallow, and in the beginning I had a lot of sleepless nights and even kept calling Doctors and begging them to do something, but I had to finally accept that right now there’s just nothing they can do, so I had to learn to make a new normal for myself, and keep reminding myself this isn’t going to be forever, it’s just a season.

Thats another reason I haven’t wrote a article because I just physically haven’t felt well enough to do one. Besides the scar tissue literally taking over my abdomen, I also have these pockets of fluid still that are also taking over, and between the both of those things my stomach pushes out so much that I cannot even turn on my side easily anymore, so it all has become very overwhelming, but at the same time it’s crazy because even though I’m trapped in my house and my body feels like crap, I have never felt closer to the Lord and have never felt as thankful for life as I do right now, and I can honestly say even though I’m going through hell physically, I have never been more content than I am right now.

My book is almost done, I have an amazing group of friends, especially the one I mentioned earlier, who have all stood by me and literally have held me up, it’s crazy because I’ve never been more secluded than I am now, but yet there have been periods in my life where I wasn’t secluded like this, where I did travel to different churches and volunteer for stuff, and did have more of what society would call a “normal” social life but yet felt a billion times more secluded than I do now, because now I know who I am, and I fully one hundred percent whole heartedly know who Christ is and who I am in Christ, and I whole heartedly am just grateful for the moment I’m in, I’m not trying to push myself to see into the future but am just grateful for the present.

I posted a link  on my Facebook page the other day, I have a picture of the post below👇 It’s an article stating how a governor  in Ohio signed for them to pass a law to say that if a pregnant woman wants to abort their baby they can no longer do that if a Doctor can find a heart beat! Now let me make clear just like I made clear when I posted this on my Facebook page. I think this issue is a very complex issue and I do not think there is one right or wrong answer, and when I posted this, I was not trying to get into the politics side of this. I posted it because I wanted to focus on LIFE I wasn’t looking at woman’s rights, or even biblical views on it, I was focused on the the LIFE part of it, of course though everyone had to start attacking my post and they were so busy trying to get their point across that they couldn’t see anything else. I nicely told them all, hey I’m more than happy to hear your side of things, but say it once and move on because I do not want people arguing about this. Of course a few of them did not respect my wishes and I actually even had to block someone, which I hate doing, I hate blocking people, but I had to, this woman wrote 32 comments in 4 hours! So after all this went down the Lord kept laying this on my heart and he just continually kept showing me the LIFE aspect of it and continually kept reminding me how he is the one who breathed LIFE in to each and every one of us.

F772784C-1563-459B-A1CC-0C15DEBE5E52I than shared part of how I felt, I said I am someone who was supposed to die within the first ten days of my life and my parents were not prepared for a sick child, which most of you know all this, they thought they were giving birth to a healthy average baby, but after I was born and Doctors seen how severe I was they continually told my parents that there was no hope for me and there was no way they could care for me at home, and I’m sure some of these Doctors were probably saying all this too because they probably also figured what was the point of putting my parents and siblings through hell by bringing me home and trying to care for me and bond with me when the only out come they would all get was watching me die, but my parents did not look at the death part of it, they focused on LIFE! even though several Doctors throughout my life continually told my parents to put me in a facility because it be easier, my parents did not do that and even though Doctors could only see death, my parents seen life and fought for me to live Life, and because of that I believe that’s one of the reasons I’ve lived 32 years and still counting lol.

I know everyone’s not going to agree with me on this topic and that’s ok and honestly I even hesitated on writing all this but in the end I had to because I knew God was telling me to.  I think this is how we need to or should look at abortion, I am not saying I fully agree with the state telling you what to do, but if that’s our way to protect these unwanted children than maybe it has to be that way, I don’t fully know if that’s the right thing, that’s the part where I have mixed feelings, but I do know there has to be a better way, we have to be better. I know some times there are unimaginable cant even begin to understand situations that some woman are going through and are getting pregnant as a result of those horrible situations, and my heart does break for each and every wonan that’s gone through that kind of situation, I mean it broke my heart because just that post I did, that only had at the most 120 comments, but out of those 120 comments I had at least 4 woman open up and admit they were raped and 2 of them admitted of having a baby from being raped, those are only the woman who felt comfortable enough to speak about it, but that’s insane to me, to think that so many woman are going through that on a daily basis breaks my heart! It doesn’t only break my heart for the raped woman, but it also breaks my heart for the children who were created because of it, because I hate that we are becoming a society that can easily want to take the easy way out. Please know before I continue, if you are someone who has had an abortion, please know it’s nothing to be ashamed of, and I am not trying to make you feel shamed, and if you choose that your not a horrible person, your not, your doing what you feel is right for you! But at the same time there is a better way, it may be one of the hardest things you ever do but I believe if you did go through with having your child it would be worth it, because you’d be helping another human experience LIFE! I get your giving up your body for 9 months and a lot of having a baby is obviously more on the woman than the man and maybe part of that isn’t fair,  but the reality is that’s life, you want to take it out on someone take it out on Adam & Eve when you get to Heaven LOL. Jesus died for us, he bore that cross for us, so we could have life! I hate to say this in so many of my articles, but to many people want a get out of jail free card, we want to take the easy way out, but we need to stop that, we need to be brave, courageous and strong, and being brave is choosing the hard stuff. No matter what you choose I’ll love you, I’ll support you and I’ll hold you up no matter what, and Jesus will too by the way. I’m just asking before you do make your choice, try to focus on LIFE, not fear. My parents could have given up on me so many times, but they never did, they, especially my Mother, has given her life to care for me, and if she could do that for 32 years straight I know anyone could for 9 months, but there’s a flip side to that too, because if we as Christians are going to beg these woman to stay strong and do what we feel is right, than we better get off our you know what and start being a support, they don’t need prayer or a bible, they need someone to stand up and willing to either care for their kid if they can’t, or at least be a support, help guide them, Pay for their Doctor bills, pay for transportation, pay for clothing, food, something because if we want to say that these pregnant woman need help  than we need to come together as a community and help and stop waiting for the state to come in to help everyone, because they can only do so much. It is funny because as the Lord was speaking to me about some of these issues I came across a Facebook video, to this day I don’t know how I found it but I did, and it’s a video of TD Jakes giving these 1 minute sermons and their all awesome, but the first one really stood out to me and I really felt it was why the Lord brought me to that video, the first sermon he speaks on is called my Shot (I think) and he starts explaining a story in the Bible, I won’t go into the story because I’d never be able to explain it like he could, I mean of course I can’t that’s why I’m not a preacher lol, but the moral to the story is. When it comes time for you to “make your shot”, step out on faith and do something that maybe your scared of doing, don’t wait for God to do it for you because  God will never do it for you, you will never see him, for instance I’m writing a book, it’s hard, it’s scary, but no matter how hard or scary it is, Gods not going to do that for me, but he will guide me or you to the tools we need to achieve our goal, and so I’m going to tell you again, we can’t expect these woman who are, already scared to death to do the brave thing, if we’re not there to help guide them through the process, in situations like this were the tools, were the people these ladies need to help them achieve their win! We can’t say love like Jesus loves and not walk it out and walking it out is more than a smile on our face and a sweet prayer! We need to do the work.

I wanted to share one last thing than I’ll end. It will sort of bind this all together I promise. We just got through Easter right? What is Easter about? The resurrection of Christ right? It’s a day to reflect on LIFE, it’s a day to reflect on how precious LIFE is and how blessed we are that he gave his entire LIFE for us, he didn’t care what we did, he still don’t, he doesn’t care where we come from, he just loves like a child loves. When a child looks at us they don’t see our flaws, and I know that for a fact because about a year ago I was showing my niece some pictures of when I was a kid, now other than being about 20 pounds thinner I pretty much looked the same, just to give you a visual and a better understanding, back than in these pictures I was showing her, I was about 13 years old, now when I was born I was only about  12 inches long and now I’m still only 25 inches long so it’s not like I grew a whole lot during my childhood lol. So if you a average person seen these pictures of me from my childhood, I wouldn’t even have to say anything, you would automatically know it’s me, not only because of my size but also, how many people have bent arms and are laying in a pink wheelchair, not many LOL, and yes I mean laying because I cannot sit-up. So to you all, you would recognize me in a heart beat, but when I showed my niece these pictures,  which at the time she was 7, she just looked at me and my sister, (her Mom) and we knew she had no clue it was me and so I said to her Mira, it’s me, it’s auntie, see the chair and see my arms and I kept pointing out the things that would be most obvious to us, because let’s be honest when we see people we see the flaws before anything else, we see their diseases before anything else, and when this happened the Lord immediately spoke to me and he was like, she doesn’t see the disease, she sees auntie, she sees your heart, your soul, your mind, she does not see the disease, no child does, and he said: kids see people the way I see them,  they see through the eyes of love and only LOVE! I know to a certain level that might sound a little cheesy and a little to “Christian” but truly, the Lord sees you he does not see your mistakes or your flaws or your scars, he sees your heart he sees you!

So let’s love whole heartedly like he does, stop fighting and tearing each other down and stop trying to prove what you think is right, and just love. Oh also the song I added above, I did not have time to get ahold of the artist again so I couldn’t make my own video but it’s an amazing song and the artist herself made a YouTube video for everyone to hear it, so I just embedded that video into this article. But the songs called fighting for me, and the artist is amazing, her voice is amazing and the lyrics to these songs she sings are just insane, she’s a newer artist, but extremely talented and anyways again the songs called fighting for me, , and it’s basically a song where she’s singing how no matter what she goes through in life, God will still be their fighting for her, and with her, even if her faith gets weak he’s still going to fight for her love, and I think it’s just the perfect song for right now, it’s perfect because of everything I been going through personally, and it’s also perfect for everything we’re going through as a community and nation, because we can keep tearing each other to shreds but our father is still going to be there fighting for our attention, he’s still going to be whispering things into our heart, and I say heart deliberately because when our father speaks to us he doesn’t speak in our ear he speaks directly to our heart and soul! It is also why I chose to put Luke 21:34-36 because it’s saying to be careful, it’s basically admitting life is going to get messy and hard, but don’t get caught up in the ness and the fear of the drama around you, stay focused on what’s important and the only important thing is your relationship with Christ, and if you stay focused on that and don’t allow the mess of the world to get in your head, heart and spirit, than you will achieve your win and the win is being able to see the son of man, the one who created it all, us all. We’re getting to caught up in the world guys, we need to get back to what is true and pure!

GOD BLESS EVERYONE I LOVE YOU AND JESUS LOVES YOU, HE DIED FOR YOU, IF THAT DOESN’T PROVE HE LOVES YOU NOTHING WILL. anyone who truly knows me knows, I will never try to change you, but I will try to show you this amazing man named JESUS and I will try to prove his love to you. GOD bless and happy Easter! ✝️
