Get Back Up

This made me cry! When we are down we need to get back up, no matter how we do it. We need to remember God is with us and will give us the creativity and strength to finish well.

shared stories connect us in remarkable ways - if they are not told to others they fester and die without creating new life in others - i've seen this video before; yet, it still stirs emotion within my heart!

sojourner,

I have watched the video four times, I feel like I am on face trying to get up, and this gave me hope I will find away...perhaps I need to use my head too!

You have a disciplined life, it shows forth in your comments and has inspired me to consider how I spend my time.

What a loving smile on the first man's face and what a shock when I saw he had no legs and arms. Beautiful person. Thanks for following me. I shall come back.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today! Looks like you have some great material here on your blog! Looking forward to getting to "know" you!

GutsyWriter,
One thought that has been haunting me all week is how do we treat the nobodies in our culture. If only we could look past the physical appearances and see the soul.

Also, if this man has learned to get up when his face was completely in the ground, this was an encouragement for me. I enjoyed your blog, it was fun with a warm sense of humor and love.

Jody,
I knew you would visit! You have a great blog with lots of material I need to read. I might never write a published book, but I believe God will use me to touch others to encourage them on their journey.

I look forward to getting to know you both. It is fun to read the hearts thoughts from others journey.

Robin,

I've seen the video a few times myself and it touches me every single time. The very first time I saw it and then saw that he was without limbs, I was awe-stricken in my heart. He has such a warm, friendly smile, so personable and handsome yet despite his disabilities, goes on teaching and touching the lives and the hearts of so many others. Now that's the kind of person I want to be!

Love you,
Alleluiabelle

I've seen several of Nick's video's; but this one is new to me. What a powerful visual of him laying on the table and getting up without limbs.

My heart is filled with gratitude for the limbs I take for granted.
