Someone recently asked me what I thought the point of my writing is.
Here was my response to them:
Suffice it to say that I believe in Spirit over Matter and in One God
Who gives us all we have.
I try to reflect those beliefs in my three blogs and in my books.
The fact remains that my liver was infected with a deadly virus and
I’m doing the treatment for that. I’m also trying to portray what
it’s like to suffer through the Hep C treatment and look ahead to
Some of my humor is “dark” and I’m aware the drugs do warp things a bit.
I “caught” the virus because, for far too many years, I was not close
to God… But, now that I have it, I can’t just think or pray it away.
God is Merciful but is also Ultimate Justice.
I’m “paying” for a loose lifestyle. Some would call it burning off Karma…
“The city of Las Vegas shut down the Endoscopy Center of Southern Nevada last Friday after state health officials determined that six patients had contracted hepatitis C because of unsafe practices, including clinic staff reusing syringes and vials.Nevada health officials are trying to contact about 40,000 patients who received anesthesia by injection at the clinic between March 2004 and Jan. 11 of this year to urge them to get tested for hepatitis C, hepatitis B and HIV.”
O God, my God! I beg of Thee by the ocean of Thy healing, and by the splendors of the Daystar of Thy grace, and by Thy Name through which Thou didst subdue Thy servants, and by the pervasive power of Thy most exalted Word and the potency of Thy most august Pen, and by Thy mercy that hath preceded the creation of all who are in heaven and on earth, to purge me with the waters of Thy bounty from every affliction and disorder, and from all weakness and feebleness.Thou seest, O my Lord, Thy suppliant waiting at the door of Thy bounty, and him who hath set his hopes on Thee clinging to the cord of Thy generosity. Deny him not, I beseech Thee, the things he seeketh from the ocean of Thy grace and the Daystar of Thy loving-kindness.Powerful art Thou to do what pleaseth Thee. There is none other God save Thee, the Ever-Forgiving, the Most Generous.
