 Romans 8:37-39

NO, IN ALL THESE THINGS WE ARE MORE THAN CONQUERORS THROUGH HIM WHO LOVED US. FOR I AM CONVINCED THAT NEITHER DEATH NOR LIFE, NEITHER ANGELS NOR DEMONS, NEITHER PRESENT NOR THE FUTURE, NOR ANY POWERS, NEITHER HEIGHT NOR DEPTH, NOR ANYTHING ELSE IN ALL CREATION, WILL BE ABLE TO SEPARATE US FROM THE LOVE OF GOD THAT IS IN CHRIST JESUS OUR LORD.

 

Hi all sorry it’s been so long since I have wrote but I promise I haven’t forgotten any of you.  I have just been so busy, writing and publishing a book is not as easy as it looks LOL.  But before I get into all of that I’d like to first talk about what led me to write this blog.

As I’m sure you all have heard the Supreme courts have made same sex marriage legal in all 50 states!! Now before you all start rolling your eyes and start assuming I’m going to come at you in a biblical way don’t worry, calm it down because I’m not going to, at least I’m not going to right this second LOL.  Seriously though I usually don’t even bring this topic up, I usually avoid it like the plaque because I know people know my love for the bible,church and GOD and when people know that they usually get very judgmental and defensive and usually already have their swords up before I even say anything, but I’d like to warn you don’t waste your time getting in attack mode. This does not have to do with my biblical beliefs or what I think is right or wrong.  This has to do with society and how they shut their eyes to the disabled.  While everyone’s celebrating equal rights where’s ours??

I do believe what the bible says and the bible does clearly state marriage should be between man and woman just read Genesis 2:18-25 , and as the video I have above states our country was founded on the bible and biblical ways, but but even though I don’t agree with this ruling does not mean I hate the LGBT community. I am not here to be their judge what they choose is on them and me coming at them and smacking them in the head with the bible or scriptures or saying things to them that are judgmental and down right rude is not going to fix anything and if any Christian does go to attack these people or judge these people than you all are sinning just as much as they are.  So if we’re going to speak about the word and “sinful behavior” than get ready because I’m going to come down just as hard on you the “Christians” as I would anyone else in this country.  Also let me add I have many gay and lesbian friends so to any of you that read this please know this blog is not to attack you all I love and respect each of you just as much as I do any of my friends ❤

But like I said from the beginning I’m not going to debate the bible with you all.  You all know the bible just as well as I do and some of you may even know it better than I do so let’s not waste our breaths debating on what we think the word of GOD says, because we all have our own interpretation.  But why I’m writing this is because I read an amazing article on a disability website and I’ll actually put the link to that article at the end of this blog so you all can read it 🙂 the article was basically talking about how hard it is for us disabled people to get married,  Now when I say that some of you are probably thinking that I mean it’s hard for us to find someone to marry, but no that’s not what I mean at all.  Yes the LGBT got what they wanted and that’s awesome for them again I’m not here to attack them.

But all I keep seeing on TV, magazines, internet and every other social media outlet you can think of, is how because of this ruling we all have equal rights.  But that’s not necessarily true and what I’m about to point out I did not even realize myself till I read this article, I mean I knew this information but yet it didn’t really click in my brain till I read the article, and what that information was is the fact that the statement of saying we have equal rights is not true, not true what so ever.  Because if it was true than people with disabilities would not struggle as much as we do.

What I mean by that is for us disabled people, the ones like me especially.  The ones who cannot work and who have to be on government programs.  If we fall in love and want to get married we basically have to choose between marriage or living.  For instance if I or someone like me were to get married and we married someone with a job we would lose everything, at least in most states this is true.  If I were to marry, and don’t freak out people because I’m definitely NOT!!!! I am not insane LOL. But for pretend let’s say I was. I would lose most or all my medical insurance, I’d lose any extra programs like home health care., because for someone like me in order for me to be able to just get out of bed and get fed I’d have to have a nurse because  remember I am totally wheelchair bound and my spouse would not be able to care for me because he’d have to obviously go to work. I’d also lose help with things like money for food, I’d also lose ssi If I didn’t totally lose that I guarantee it be cut down to almost nothing. I’d also lose help with medical equipment, things like oxygen, feeding tubes, medicines, ramps, wheelchairs. Walkers.  These are all things people in my shoes would lose or at least struggle to get if they married a healthy hard working person.  And to lose these things would basically be like loosing our life because without this stuff we would not survive.  So as I said in the beginning does this seem fair?? And more importantly does this seem equal??

Ok now that I’ve said all I had to say about that lets update you on how I and the book is doing LOL.  The book GOLD is doing awesome I am officially done writing it and now am in the editing stage!! I have been a very busy little bee these past few months LOL.  Not only did I finish writing the book but I also did research and figured out how much it will cost me if I published the book on my own, and honestly it’s looking like I’m going to have to go that route because it’s very hard to get a publishing company to say yes to publishing a book especially if your a first time writer like myself.

So if I were to publish this book myself it would cost me anywhere from.  You ready for this?? $10,000-$12,000 when I seen those numbers I think my eye balls popped out of my head for a brief moment LOL.  But even though I know it will cost that much it still does not mean I am giving up, there is no way, (in you know where) I’d give up now.  I did not spend three years of my life writing a book to place it on my shelf LOL.  So after I seen that number $10,000-$12,000 I said ok GOD what now?? And immediately I felt him telling me KICKSTARTER BABY LOL.  So that’s my goal this fall to get either a Kickstarter campaign going or a indiegogo campaign, their basically both the same just one may be a little cheaper than the other.

But the bottom line is I need to do something to raise some money and im not the type of person to take people’s hard earned money for nothing.  I am always the giver and I do not like having to ask for handouts, which is why I came up with the indiegogo campaign because it’s a way for me to raise money for my book but also give back.  So that is the plan this summer to organize the campaign and get some people to donate some prizes.  That includes my the-book-of-roo readers, if any of you own a business or sell a product please think about donating to my campaign I’m looking for anything, I know I have a few artists who read my stuff so signed CDs would be great. Hats, tshirt, posters, gift cards. Anything that could be given out as a indiegogo prize. If your not familiar with what a kickstarter or indiegogo campaign is than please google it to find out LOL.  Just so everyone knows I’m planning on starting this project in the end of September or mid November.

As far as me personally, like my health and stuff, I cannot complain I’m very blessed. Today I am celebrating one year since I’ve been admitted in to any hospital!!!! Thank you JESUS YOU ARE AWESOME. This is only the second time in my life I’ve been able to say I’ve made it an entire year without any admissions and honestly after the four year roller coaster I was on, with the whole scar tissue and adhesion mess. I truly thought I’d never get to Say I’m celebrating a year with no admissions ever again.  The first time I celebrated it, it was miracle in it self, but now to have done that again and after everything I had gone through. It’s beyond amazing and truly shows how awesome my GOD is and more proof of how powerful and faithful my GOD IS. Now here’s where I’m going preach to you LOL.  When people see miracles like me how could they ever Deny Christ??  I wasn’t supposed to live beyond ten days but here I am just one month shy of 29 years, it has not been easy but yet so worth it.  His grace is the answer.

My final update is that I have a second job LOL.  Besides my writing career I decided to give sales a try, so about three weeks ago I became a Jamberry consultant.  In case you do not know what Jamberry is, it’s a company that sells nail products particularly nail wraps.  All Jamberry products are all natural no chemicals so it’s all completely safe for everyone to use including kids.  The real reason I started this is not only to give me something more to do with my time because I like to stay busy and keep my mind occupied but I also decided to do this so that I could try making some extra cash to put towards the publishing of my book, so if there’s any ladies reading this and like to do their nails check out the link http://roostreasures7.jamberrynails.net.  And also keep checking my facebook consultant page https://www.facebook.com/roostreasures because besides selling the nail wraps I also create my own nail wrap designs and right now I am selling ones particularly for the book. Their called coming out gold and I’ve made them totally in honor of my book.  You all can also come up with your own designs or even your company or school logo just send me your idea or picture and I’ll make it and ship it out to you.  So don’t forget to check all that fun stuff out while your waiting for my campaign to start or book to come out.

THATS IT FOR TODAY, YOU WILL BE HEARING FROM ME AGAIN SOON I PROMISE BUT AS ALWAYS PLEASE KEEP ME AND MY BOOK IN YOUR PRAYERS AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR ALL THE PRAYERS, LOVE AND SUPPORT YOU THROW MY WAY EVERY DAY. PLEASE REMEMBER IF YOU NEED PRAYER I AM HERE JUST STOP BY MY PRAYER PAGE, AGAIN THATS LOCATED ON THE RIGHT HAND SIDE OF PAGE 🙂 ALSO PLEASE KNOW JESUS LOVES YOU AND I DO TOO LOL ❤

P.S PLEASE REMEMBER EVEN THOUGH IM BUILDING A INDIEGOGO CAMPAIGN DOES NOT MEAN YOU HAVE TO WAIT TO GIVE.  IF YOU WANT TO GIVE NOW TO HELP SUPPORT MY DREAM OF PUBLISHING MY BOOK, OR EVEN GIVE TO JUST HELP KEEP THIS SITE GOING, BECAUSE TO RUN THIS SITE COST MONEY TOO,  SO IF ANY OF YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEND A DONATION TO SUPPORT MY WORK, NOW YOU CAN DO THAT BY CLICKING Donate Button with Credit Cards
