CELEBRATION OF LIFE!!! (A THANKFUL HEART)

 PSALMS 107:1

GIVE THANKS TO THE LORD, FOR HE IS GOOD; HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER.

Hi all. I am so sorry I have not wrote anything since easter 😦 I do have some good excuses though lol (laugh out loud).  I really wanted to write a blog about Wishbone day! (ill explain what Wishbone day is in a second).  Sadly Wishbone day was on Friday May 6th, so I did not get to writing the blog in time for it 😦 so for now ill still just give a brief explanation, about what Wishbone day is.

You see, Wishbone day, is a day where people with OSTEOGENESIS IMPERFECTA (brittle bone disease) the disease I was born with and battle every day.  Come together from all over the world!! and wear yellow to show awareness for the disease.

More importantly, Wishbone day, is a day to celebrate our accomplishments and to celebrate Life, and it’s a day to show people that we really can do all things through Christ who gives us strength and that yes, with GOD all things really are possible.

 For those of you who may be  new readers and may not know much about this disease, let me briefly tell you a little bit about it.  It is a brittle bone disease, The bones do not grow right and it is a disease where people can break bones daily!!

There are different types or severities of the disease.  The type I have is one of the most severe types.  I break my bones every hour!! people ask me all the time if when I break my bones, is it as painful as it would be for any average “Healthy” person? my answer to that question is, yes!!!!!! the pain you all feel when you break a bone, is the exact same as the pain I or anyone with Osteogenesis Imperfecta feels, the difference is, what it takes to actually break the bones and then the way they heal.

 For instance, you all may break your bones by falling off a bike, or getting in to a car accident, where I on the other hand would break my bones by coughing or just taking a deep breath.  Thats Osteogenesis Imperfecta in a nutshell lol (laugh out loud).

 The reason I did not get to doing this “Wishbone day blog” is because,  First I was sick,  and than my computer started crashing on me, so I could not get online much.

The Video above is my own creation!!! it took me four days! to do this video,  Because of my computer being so messed up lol (laugh out loud).  But hey at least I got it done, right? right lol.

My first intentions for doing this video, was to show my support for OSTEOGENESIS IMPERFECTA and Wishbone day (awareness day).

Sadly my computer did not cooperate with me and Wishbone day came and went lol (laugh out loud), and at first I was kind of disapointed and I was going to scratch the whole project. than I went online and seen all the amazing things my friends and family did to support Wishbone day,OSTEOGENESIS IMPERFECTA and me.

I also seen all the stuff other families, from all over the world!! were doing, and I was very touched and in that moment the LORD spoke to me and told me to continue creating this video and guided me into a new direction and path.

Other than mentioning Wishbone day, I really did not know what to write  about until just now that is.  As I was reading the words that I was writing and thinking in my mind about what I went through trying to make this video on my” junk” of a laptop lol (laugh out loud) I felt the LORD speaking to me and telling me to write on PATIENTS!!!

My computer kept freezing every twenty to thirty minutes, while I was making this “Wishbone day” video, which means, I had to keep restarting  everything every twenty to thirty minutes.  I was getting so annoyed at times that ill admit, I definitely had some ungodly thoughts going on in my head about this laptop and video lol (laugh out loud)

And I so wanted to just give up on this thing and forget that it ever existed and I soooo wished, I had never thought of making it to begin with.  But than as I was looking at all the pictures of people with Osteogenesis Imperfecta and hearing all their stories about all the things they have overcome in life

And than thinking about all i’ve overcome.  I thought to myself, heck no, I have never given up on anything before, so something as small as this for sure is not going to scare me away or break me.

I kept at that video till it was perfect!! I could have chose to give up, that would have been the easy thing, right? no we cannot allow anything in life to scare us away, we keep fighting for our goals, we keep pressing forward.

If you do research on all the people with Osteogenesis Imperfecta, you will see how many things these people (including me) fight for, on a daily basis.  If there is something you want in life, FIGHT for it, I hate when I hear Christians say: well I was trying for this, or that, but it just didn’t happen, so I guess that means GOD has other plans.

Well yes that could be true for some people and some situations, but there are also times where I think, we are stopping our selves from getting what we want in life, because we can be so impatient.   Some Christians and people in general just want everything NOW!.

And yes there are times GOD does make things instantly happen, but there are other times where we need to fight for things, fight for  L.I.F.E. Why do you think the bible says in EPHESIANS 6:10-18.

Finally, let the LORD make you strong. Depend on his mighty power.  Put on all of GOD’S Armor.  Then you can stand firm against the devil’s evil plans.  Our fight is not against the rulers, the authorities and the powers of this dark world.  It is against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly world.

So put on all of GODS armor.  Evil days will come.  But you will be able to stand up to anything.  And after you have done everything you can, you will still be strong.  So stand firm.  Put the belt of truth around your waist.

Put the armor of Godliness on your chest.  Wear on your feet what will prepare you to tell the good news of peace.  Also, pick up the shield of faith.  With it you can put out all of the flaming arrows of the evil one.

Put on the helmet of salvation.  And tale the sword of the holy spirit.  The sword is God’s word.  At all times, pray by the power of the spirit.  Pray all kinds of prayers.  Be watchful, so that you can pray.  Always keep on praying for all of God’s people.

So see don’t you get it? there are times the enemy comes in to attack, kill and destroy, (even in the small things) but we cannot back down.  We need to FIGHT!!

In a part of the video I made, you will see it says: DON’T EVER GIVE UP! if you just Abide and stand, you’re greatest victory is at hand.  I got that saying from Beckah Shae.  I think it’s awesome.  We all just need to keep doing what I did with that video and instead of just giving up right away, like we do.  We need to pray and have GOD help and lead us through.  Just like he lead me on how to make this video work still.

I was talking to someone the other day that was a little discouraged about something and she kept saying: I just don’t think I could do this anymore.  I told her the same thing I am about to tell you, the word cant is not in my dictionary, I hate that word and I hate hearing people say it.

GOD gave us free will, which means everything in life’s a choice.  Yes some things may be harder to do and you may have to give every ounce of strength thats in you to do it, but you can! cause again we can do all things through christ who gives us strength.  So keep fighting for L.I.F.E.

Before I end this weeks blog, I would like to give a special thank you to my friend Laura Clemente and all the people from all three of the LA BARBERIA SALONS and all the people from LABARBERIA  INSTITUTE OF HAIR (IN CLEVELAND OHIO).  Thank you all so much for supporting me in making Wishbone day heard

And also thanks for letting me share a little bit of my heart with you all.  Laura you have known me for probably close to 20 years now and you have been an amazing friend. Thanks for everything you have always done for me 🙂

Also happy belated Mothers day to all the moms out there.  Mom you have been amazing and have given your entire life to care for me, I will always be grateful for having you in my life, your the best!

Enjoy Life all be grateful for everything GOD has given us.  That is what Wishbone days about Celebrating LIFE, SO COME ON ALL LETS CELEBRATE, BY PRAISING OUR GOD FOR GIVING US LIFE AND LIFE MORE ABUNDANTLY.  WELL THATS ALL GOD GAVE ME FOR TODAY.  SEE YOU NEXT WEEK ALL. GOD BLESS AND REMEMBER I LOVE YOU AND MORE IMPORTANTLY JESUS LOVES YOU 🙂

      Hi I’m glad you enjoy my blog so much it’s such a blessing to hear people say that and so encouraging for me. As far as your question about communities where you could chat with people or get support from people. I am not sure if you have a Facebook account but if you do there are lots of good support groups on there to join and also I myself have a page where me and my readers go to chat and get to know each other better and also Is a place to easily go to, to request immediate prayer if ever needed. Hope my information helped, if you would like to join my facebook page the link to it is located on the left side of this website 🙂 GOD bless and please keep reading and keep being encouraged.
