Day 225

The bible is my saving grace – that’s what I learned today 🙂

It’s 8: 42 PM on day 225 of my journey towards independence and I’ve managed to brush my teeth, feed myself a sweet potato with a chilli, onion and yoghurt dip for breakfast, tweet about my Clean Water For All Campaign for a few hours – @morsemusings (Dawn) made another donation – thanks Dawn you are truly awesome 🙂 – feed myself rice and curry for lunch, watch TV, tweet about my campaign some more – no further luck – feed myself rice and curry for dinner and continue to tweet about my campaign – still no further luck.

Today we were meant to get our passports renewed for our trip to India this summer but it didn’t occur to my father that he would actually have to be seen with me for that to happen since my mother had to stay at home with my grandma so he called off the whole thing and decided to go get my wheelchair’s belt fixed with my sister which was totally fine with me only my mother wasn’t having any of it and said she –referring to my sister – stays I’ll go with you to which my father responded in anger saying you’re not going come ‘on Nisha let’s go and as I sat in the car looking at him in the garden feeling hurt that he was taking me out grudgingly I remembered a verse in the bible and thought bless and do not curse. Do you use the bible as a weapon or a shield?

  1. If you’re not satisfied with your progress, maybe you need to try some different approaches in fundraising. For example, you might try building a stronger community around your blog. The best way to start that is by going to other people’s blogs, reading them, and making comments on other people’s blogs.

    As for the bible, I read it. Almost once a week. It’s kind of small to serve as a shield. And it’s kind of blunt and awkward to stab with. [grin]

    Why are you troubled, and why do questionings rise in your hearts? Luke 24:38

  2. Hey there beautiful lady, each human on earth has their “demons” to deal with, which could be a person, an addition or just their self-esteem. You just need to remember “who You are” and if you can find it possible, forgive 70 X70 times 🙂

    As for my Bible, I read mine daily. Never for a weapon, since we should not argue with the “Pharisees”. And not for a shield either, that’s faith. I use it for guidance, inspiration and wisdom in whatever my current circumstances. I open it for answers to my questions…

    You are loved and keep up the good works. Sometimes things may not seem to be going as well as we want, but God works in mysterious ways. With Love, Leticia
