Thank you for being a part of 5,748 follows and counting on Dreaming Together for a Better World. To God be the glory! Without His help, I wouldn’t have had the stamina to write over 500 pieces as I fight increasing challenges with the extremely rare autoimmune disease of mastocytosis. There are many more extremely painful lesions on my arms, legs, and on my torso. We pray as I know you do that Christ our Great Physician will bring His healing to this condition, and a cure for all who suffer from it. Once I get on a medication called cromolyn to reduce the abdominal pain from which many of the symptoms escalate all the way to requiring intubation, we believe I will be much healthier.
We are praying for those open doors to get books such as Prayers and Poems from the Garden and Reflections from a Dreaming Together for a Better World published either as e-books or hardcover books in part for community and missions development fundraising, and to provide for greatly increasing medical treatment costs.
I thank all who have followed this blog for over five and a half years. I hope I encourage you that God uses you to change the world by one act of kindness after the other. That’s what builds better and more caring communities. In those seemingly small acts of caring such as a smile, that outstretched hand, and a listening ear, you are creating a more beautiful world.
I would like to thank my supportive wife, Karen. Dreaming wouldn’t have come to be all it has without her mentoring, and willingness to sacrifice time spent with her to do my small part in inspiring you to change people’s lives. Glen Campbell says, “..show a little kindness. Shine your light for everyone to see.” Thank you, darling, for being a shining light to me and others. We pray that your writing will go out to all the people our Father wants to be touched by it. Have a richly blessed 2019 everyone! – Kevin and Karen
