Fear knocked.
But when Faith answered,
no one was there.


I saw this saying one morning on a sign for an auto repair shop in Friendswood, Texas. It boiled the handling of being afraid down to its most basic elements, and I thought it appropriate for my ALS page. One of the things we all go through after our diagnosis is a battle with fear. Being afraid to die; being afraid to depend on others; being afraid of losing the ability to communicate; and, sometimes, just being afraid of tomorrow and what tomorrow will bring.

Until they find a cure for ALS, give your fears to God, and know that He loves you. I did that over twenty years ago, and all I can say is, well...I'm still here typing my messages for you to read, aren't I?
