Please below for buttons edited before Jan 2019

This website is to give honor and glory to our loving God for my blessed life and also to try to give hope and help for people who have had paralyzing strokes and others in need of inspiration. Following my own experiences and with God's help and guidance I can hopefully help do so?

Buttons will change colour ONLY if that page is available.

The sovereign Lord is my strength!

Praise God no matter what you circumstances are!

I thank our living God for the wonderful 64 years on this wonderful world and especially for the last 11 years following my strokes for it with His grace that I live! A favourite song of mine being 'Count your blessings'

'Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good, His love endures for ever'. (Chronicles 16:34). My personal ethos is inspired by the scriptures; Philippians 4:13 'I can do everything through Him who gives me strength' and Matthew 19:26 'With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible' so have faith and carry on!

I also try and remember our Lord Jesus's command in John 13 v34-35 "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another."
