Health challenges are not new to me. “By the grace of God,” with the blessing of medical care and pharmaceutical “miracles,” and with the love and encouragement of many people, I have been able to find some way to “get up” and keep living a meaningful life.
During this blog, I have been blessed with what, for me, is good health. I’ have now reached, however, a stage in my multiple sclerosis, post polio syndrome and general aging that I must find ways to accomplish physical and mental functioning that I used to take for granted. Heat can be debilitating for me, and when my core temperature rises with uncontrolled bodily heat or an infection, I can become quite helpless physically and mentally. Post polio “brain fatigue” imposes some limitations, which I tend to ignore, to do something that I feel “needs to be done.. These limitations and influence at times can be detected in my writing and posts by myself and others. Complicating such issues is the fact that I rely on speech recognition to do the main part of my writing, and that software often “hears” words that I did not intend. My “MS slur doesn’t help. When I do type, as now, it is “hunt-and-peck” with my right hand. “When I am finished writing” a post, I often do not have the patience or the mental edge to adequately proof what I have written and posted. I apologize to anyone who has noted erratic , non-sensical writing. I hope I have now better proofed my earlier posts.
I have generally enjoyed good health while writing this blog; at least, whatever the progress of my post polio syndrome and multiple sclerosis has not affected my mind to the degree that I have felt incompetent to write on the subjects that I have. I would like to further explore the art masterpieces and the music that I have already posted, giving more of my own interpretations. I would like to explore the art of writing, literature, as it relates to Biblical subjects and spiritual matters. I trust that it has great potential for good. My Legal Philosophy professor, John Snowden, closed a semester with the seemingly mystical saying: “If you ever have a problem, find a good book, and there you will find your answer.” I hope this blog can be good reading for someone; it has been therapeutic for me.
So I will post notes that I have compiled from my readings over the years concerning theology, and then share with you some writings that I have developed over my lifetime. I will start with the notes that I had gathered from my readings over the years, which have had great significance for me..
