Renewing My Strength

As if one miracle is not enough, one more message bonked me in the head today. It came via Facebook and it deeply touched my very soul. I feel as though my predicament is minimal compared to what this young man has endured all of his life, but I know that God will only give me as much as I can handle. For me, I laid in my bed for the first time last night and was frustrated this morning because it took me 10-15 minutes to be able to sit up (my shoulders hurt immensely), it just doesn't compare.

I wish I could personally thank this young man - Nick - for helping renew my inner strength today. And I thank the good Lord for continuing to lead me.....

I urge everyone to watch this - and remember HIM when you are having a rough day. May we all be blessed with an attitude like this.

You can watch his short video on You Tube at:


  1. BTW - his name is Nick Vujicic - you can google him. He has three video's that I've found

  2. Yes, that is inspirational to watch him interact with the audience. So many people complain so much about the little things in life and they forget just how lucky they are compared to so many other souls in the world.

  3. You are incredible, and you are strong!!! Always and all ways remember what an incredible circle of family and friends you have! Please count me as a friend. With love and prayers, Kathy

  4. Arla, you look wonderful.......I am so proud to call you my are my hero and you are an inspiration....
    THANK YOU!!!!!

    Love, Donna Nero

  5. Arla,
    I had seen him in the past on line and when I first saw him, I was overwhelmed to see how he had been able to overcome major disaabilities that many people might not be able to accept. This goes to show us all how attitude is so very important in the healing process.

    To be able to Live and Love is a wonderful thing. You are doing a great job with your healing process and even though time appears to go slowly at times, life moves on very quickly! Love Ya!

  6. Thank you all so much. Your thoughts and words do not go unnoticed and I hang on to them tightly and dearly. You are SO appreciated.
