Sure, she has no arms. That doesn't seem to slow her down. But what about ME??? I went to church Sunday and it must've been 80 DEGREES in there. I had to sit there for OVER AN HOUR!!! I thought I was going to suffocate! And then Sister Brown looked at me cross-eyed, TWICE! And then that usher steered me toward a seat off to the side, probably because I was wearing jeans and no tie. I think he wanted to skip right over me at communion. What, HE can tell if I'M good enough for the Lord's table? Sure didn't stop him from shoving that fat offering plate under my nose, though. And that uppity so-called "worship" leader passed right over my precious child for the big part in the children's choir production. I mean, that Williams kid can't carry a tune in a bucket, little buck-toothed fart. But I guess his daddy gave that fat check for the new sound system, so there you go. Lord, if I wasn't such a longsuffering soul, I'd up an leave that place, with all those judgmental hypocrites.

Hmph, wish I didn't have any arms. Then maybe somebody would pay attention to ME.

I can always count on you to help me keep things in perspective, Kc. Thanks, brotha.

The whole time I watched this I was thinking there's no way to know just how many people she's teaching a thousand lessons each moment without even opening her mouth. I had to wonder what kind of lessons I was teaching with my life. God forgive me.

That is amazing. But I can't help but think how my feet would cramp up if I had to do all that.

Pastor are you back? If so then welcome home! ;-)

I had the exact same thought as well as a zillion others. While this dear lady may have no arms I could not see that it slowed her in the least. Simply amazing.

Hello KC,

The lady even made me look at myself with all the problems that I have , but I don't know if I could have the same spirit she does if I had no arms ? I know I'm truly blessed !!

Dorse you turned on my thinking with all that carrying on . At first I said to myself , He must have went to church and forgot his bucket to put all of the blessings God bestowed upon him or it must have had a whole in it ?

Blessings.
Ron.

I hope my tirade was recognized for the joke it was. As I watched the lady with no arms, I was reminded of my first missions trip to work with the poorest people I have ever encountered. These people had nothing, except for unbounded joy from knowing Jesus. In truth, they put me to shame.

I recall coming home to the congregation and hearing some lady grumble that the coffee was too strong that morning, and another complaining that the church air conditioning wasn't getting the job done. I had a tough time restraining myself.

Anyway, I intended that little rant to be a poke at how easily we lose sight of how good we have it.

Dorse,
I liked the way you were saying and I was just adding conversation. It is very true and sad that some have to look for something to complain about ?

Blessings Bro.
Ron.

Dorse I thought your impression was quite thought provoking. ;-)

Ok, I just watched this (sorry, been out of the loop a little, as always). My first thought was, and it is only because there is a big pessimist in me, that some people are going to criticize this woman and say she is not fit to be a mother. I imagine that she will, if she hasn't already, reach some obstacles in people claiming that she can't care for the child completely. They will say that she may drop the baby or not be able to hold it properly...

Grr...I really should be more optimistic.

p.s. I never was thinking these thoughts were legit. I was just thinking that that is something someone may think of.

Adam it's great to have your thoughts here no matter when you offer them! ;-)

Sadly I am certain you are correct and I suspect the reasons for such doubt are as varied as the persons. I can't help but think that the root cause is pride.

I hope all goes well with you brother.
