On being forged into a warrior mom

If I could summarize our journey from Hell to HOPEISM, it would be in my faith, which I call HOPEISM. It has been my weapon of choice to get me through each battle I have had to fight in my mission to win our war called life with autism and seizures. Vaccine injury to be more specific. It would also be in committing to heart, soul, & mind the words and motto's from Forged, NDCQ, the Lone Survivor, and Levi Lusko in his book, "Through the Eyes of a Lion." I will be forever grateful to the inspiration, encouragement, and mental fortitude found through all of them collectively. Because of that, I am not allowing this tragedy of vaccine injury that has come into our lives to be an obstacle to being used by God. I am instead turning it into an opportunity to be used like never before!

This blog is dedicated to Brandon. His life has been forged by difficulty, obstacles, & all too often because of seizures - pain, blood, broken teeth, & broken bones. Yet through all that he has shown such fortitude. The bravery, strength, & resilience of a true warrior. He taught me that having strength through adversity means that even if you lose every battle, like the Lone Survivor, you never quit fighting until you win the war. That in the words of "NDCQ," you keep "dreaming," keep "daring," & keep "doing." As Team Guppy has yet to be able to escape vaccine injury, we have no choice but to as Levi Lusko writes, "Run toward the Roar." God has indeed given us such incredible power in enduring such impossible pain.

Some days the HOPEISM in that simply takes my breath away.

I'm entirely bonkers...

I saw this tree in the picture above on one of my daily walks. 
It made me think of the movie I had just watched,  Johnny Depp in "Alice in Wonderland".
I love to get lost in my imagination sometimes!  I walked around that trail imagining going down that rabbit hole in the tree to a whole new world full of adventure!

An adventure other than autism I might add.
I think that's why I so look forward to my walks lately...truly a time for me to escape the sometimes sharp claws of the autism-bandersnatch!

So many lines in that movie I could so relate to!

I think one of my favorites was the Mad Hatter talking to Alice:

"Have I gone mad?"

"I'm afraid so.  You're entirely bonkers.  But I tell you a secret, the best people are."

I think as a Christian sometimes, you have to be bonkers! 

Let's see... 

I believe in a God who spoke a world into creation in 7 days.
I believe him, though I've never seen him, felt him, or audibly heard from him.
I believe he exists in 3 forms, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.
I believe he died and rose from the dead, for my sins, so that I might live with him for eternity.

Yes, I have gone mad!

Entirely bonkers!

Mad for my Savior!

A 'gone-bonkers' Jesus-freak!

And I've never felt more sane!

And like Alice --- I choose to believe in as many as 6 impossible things before breakfast.

It's how I survive an insane world.

Except for me, it's 7...

(I'm rebellious like that)

1.  God's mercy can make my sins shrink.
2.  God's word can make me grow.
3.  The God I cannot see, touch, or audibly hear -- talks to me.
4.  Through prayer any diseases, troubles, illnesses, injustices, - can disappear.
5.  There is a place called heaven.
6.  Satan is an evil jabberwocky.
7.  I can slay him.
