Thank you so much for your testimony, dear cva66snipe. You have learned a hugely important lesson for a Christian, something that most NEVER fully grasp, but once we do, like you said, our life is never the same again. It becomes the calm assurance that through the storm, God is right there with us, and we surrender to HIS will because we KNOW that He loves us and His will is always what is best for us. Like David, we can say, "Whom have I in heaven but thee, there is none that I desire besides thee."

Something interesting about Joni most persons don't really realize. She can do something she should not as a full quad at her level be able to do which is sing. It takes using the diaphragm. Quads usually loose their stomach muscles.
We got to meet her years ago at an expo for disabilities where different wheelchair, lift, and their manufactures etc were at. She was the guest speaker for the event. She sang a song or two during that time and it was remarkable.

(Two Choices left for U.S. One Nation Under GOD or One Nation Under Judgment? Which one say ye?)
