Downs Syndrome

Downs Syndrome is an extra copy of the 23rd chromosome in a person’s DNA that causes a disability where people are slower to develop, have a rounder face and are shorter. However, Down Syndrome people are very affectionate and other members of their families become better people as a result of having them around. My…

What is wrong with you?

I love answering this question and I don’t get embarrassed about it, so here goes…   2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Dad led me to the…

Epiphany

“Forever God is faithful Forever God is true Forever God is with us Forever…, and ever” I was just praying and God showed me His provision for me. I remember in primary school, one of the poems I wrote was: ‘I see myself Lying on a bed Flying like the wind But not there yet’…

The Last Day in January

This morning I gave out tracts on the corner of Devon and Liardet Streets. Somehow I mastered my fear. I had a really good time, some short conversations, some no thank-yous. God has been putting words in my mouth. I gave a tract to an important lady from work. I really want more Christians to…

18th Day With Cogy

I pedaled in Cogy about 100m in the evening yesterday and today just like the other days. Had a really good time at the seminar and on the street today learning about and doing evangelism with my church and other invited people. https://wp.me/p88tdg-6A.

Weekend 2 of Cogy- 20-21 Jan

Saturday night – “I worked hard on Cogy today.” I biked to reception and back with one foot in a splint and the other in a small shoe with a shoelace to bend my ankle. This invention is not very effective, although it prevents my ankle paining from being straight. However, most of the force…

Day 8 COGY Trial

Yesterday I felt sick in the afternoon, so I made arrangements and went to bed. I didn’t use COGY yesterday. After a sleep I cheered up. I talked to my Catholic neighbor for an hour after he got me the hose so I could water my garden. In the morning, I got up, dressed, had…

Day 6 of COGY

I used the COGY at lunchtime today. It took 3/4hr from start to finish. I transferred chairs in shoes and long pants after Church. My caregiver took of my shoes and socks. My ankle was taped up. She put on long socks and splints, and I did up the splints. Then foam for my ankle,…

Day Four of COGY

Today is the fourth consecutive day I have had and used the COGY I have on trial. Yesterday morning Koko came to help with my walking. She also videoed me from the side. The Orthotist cast me a new pair of splints at the hospital. Koko met Mum and they both stayed for lunch. Mum…

Day Two of COGY

Today is the second day I have used COGY- the pedal wheelchair. I have in on trial. I decided to use my splints to keep my ankles bent so I could use the COGY more and go further without hurting myself. It was a lot better, but the right splint dug into me. Aside from…

My Go With COGY

On Labour Weekend last year, at Elevate camp in Matamata, I saw a newcomer in a strange sort of wheelchair: one that is operated like a bike. I thought about asking this person where she got a wheelchair like that- but she was way too fast. A bit later I saw a different person in…

When your body won’t work like it used to

When your body won’t work like it used to… Use it as an opportunity to thank the Lord That He has helped you to gain an eternal perspective on the brevity of life, and therefore the peril of the lost, the glories that await you in Heaven (if you believe in the Son John 3:36),…
