He is Never too Late

Karina's Thought

He is never too late

Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord. (Psalm 27:14)

 “I don’t how long I must waiting for the God’s answer. I think God is too long to respond or perhaps even He did not respond to my prayer. I am getting impatient” This remark came out from my friend who was having problems in her work. Few days ago she came to my office to ask an advice. This is a problem that often occurs in many Christians including me sometimes.

The reason that we many times do not see or feel the Lord presence is that we are not waiting for the lord. We are still on our own timetable and we are still running madly ahead of God and hoping He will catch up to our plans. But that is not how God works. He doesn’t change…

Tourettes and Homeopathy

I have been writing mostly about Sarah’s walk with Autism. Today, I want to bring more awareness to another diagnosis she has and that is Tourette’s.

Homeopathy is great for many different things and Tourette’s is one of them. Let me explain what Tourette’s is.

The most severe of tic disorders, Tourette syndrome is characterized by the presence of both motor and vocal tics. Although known to occur in adults, symptoms typically present between ages 5 and 18 and last for a minimum of one year. The symptoms often reduce into adulthood. Tics that begin in adulthood are generally not considered symptoms of Tourette Syndrome, and usually have a secondary cause.

Sarah has always said that it is not the Autism that bothers her so much as it is the Tourette’s that bothers her. She has also said that having Tourette’s embarrasses her. She is on traditional medicine for it right now. Personally, I would like for her to be off traditional medicines and completely on natural medicine.

I have been on a quest for a long time searching out what natural medicines are out there for people who are diagnosed with the same diseases as Sarah has. I want Sarah to be comfortable in her own skin.

The main thing that embarrasses Sarah about having Tourette’s is the Tics that sometimes come with Tourette’s.

Conditions other than Tourette Syndrome that may manifest tics include developmental disorders, autism spectrum disorders, and stereotypic movement disorders. In addition, tics can also be a part of Sydenham’s chorea, idiopathic dystonia, Huntington’s disease, neuroacanthocytosis, Hallervorden-Spatz syndrome, Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Wilson’s disease, and tuberous sclerosis.  Other possibilities for tics include Down syndrome, Klinefelter’s syndrome, XYY syndrome and fragile X syndrome.

Tics can be induced by prescription drugs, the use of “street” drugs, head trauma, encephalitis, stroke and carbon monoxide poisoning. Even low levels of thyroid hormone (Hypothyroidism) are known to cause tics. Tics are also associated with certain emotional disturbances, such as OCD and hypochondrical phenomena, as well as some seizure activity.

This is how Homeopathy can help. Homeopathic remedies are highly diluted substances that challenge the known laws of pharmacology. Critics often dismiss the positive effects of homeopathy as merely due to placebo effect. And yet, according to homeopathic doctrine and 200+ years of experience, the more diluted the substance, the more potent it becomes.

The vital force is the healing power or energy that exists within all living things. Chinese Medicine calls it Chi, while Indian Ayurveda refers to it as Prana.  The vital force fuels our mind, body and emotions. It keeps us healthy and balanced. When the balance of the vital force is disturbed by factors such as stress, pollution or improper diet, it becomes weakened and susceptible to illness.

A homeopath’s task, in any illness, is to find a substance, or homeopathic remedy, that corresponds to the sufferer’s physical and emotional health.  The correct remedy unlocks the healing power of the vital force, allowing the organism to do what it does naturally – heal itself.

Whether you are suffering from tic disorders, headaches or anxiety, homeopathy offers solutions.   A homeopathic remedy is prescribed based on your unique symptoms, feelings and experiences.  This remedy resonates with the energetic vibration of your illness and sets you on your path to recovery.

 

Woman of Faith (Rahab)

Karina's Thought

woman_of_faith_by_arvhee

“The Lord your God, He is God in Heaven above, and in earth beneath. (Joshua 2:11).

This is the fourth post of “Woman of Faith” The last posts is based on the book of Esther, Sarah and The Canaanite Woman. This evening I chose Rahab. Many of my friends through email asked me to write about Rahab and also my lovely blog friend Julie encourage me to do this. I hope the readers will enjoy reading this post.

Rahab was known by her profession. She was not an ostracized moral leper, someone to be tolerated, but not honored. Even the men who might darken her doorstep at night would turn away from her during the day.

Rahab started as a prostitute, but learned about God. This changed her. She risked her known way of life to help the spies and start a new life with the Israelites. This is an…

He’s Still Faithful

Karina's Thought

Christ – the solid Rock, the Tower of refuge,
The Haven of restful calm,
Still reaches out in the worst of times
With a soothing, healing balm.

He’s the peace that passes understanding
That this world cannot give;
The joy unspeakable and full of glory…
The abundant life we live.

He’s the undergirding Strength in fiery trials,
Giving grace to endure;
The Anchor planted deep within our souls,
Holding safe and secure.

He is still our loving Shepherd and Friend
When our dreams fall apart;
And He’s Still Faithful to all who heed His call…
Surrendering their heart.

“I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous
forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.”( Psalm 37:25)
“…the Lord is faithful, who shall stablish you, and keep you from evil.” (II Thessalonians 3:3)

Woman of Faith (Lydia)

Karina's Thought

woman_of_faith_by_arvhee

 

This is the fifth post of “Woman of Faith” The last posts is based on the book of Esther and Sarah, The Canaanite woman, and Rahab. This time I collaborated with my friend Kimberly to write this post.  Today I had the opportunity to have breakfast with Kimberly and I tell her about my post “Woman of Faith” Then we decided to write together. For this post we chose Lydia.

And on the sabbath we went out of the city by a river side, where prayer was wont to be made; and we sat down, and spake unto the women which resorted thither. And a certain woman named Lydia, a seller of purple, of the city of Thyatira, which worshipped God, heard us: whose heart the Lord opened, that she attended unto the things which were spoken of Paul. And when she was baptized, and her household, she…

Woman of Faith (Mary)

Karina's Thought

woman_of_faith_by_arvhee

 

My dear all readers, this the sixth post of “Woman of Faith” and it will be the last post of the series which talk about woman figures in the bible. For the last woman figure this evening I chose Mary.

“I am the Lord’s servant,” Mary answered. “May your word to me be fulfilled.” (Luke 1:38)

Obedience and faithfulness! This is the first things that I got from figure of Mary. When the angel said to her: “Do not be afraid, Mary; you have found favor with God. You will conceive and give birth to a son, and you are to call him Jesus. He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High. The Lord God will give him the throne of his father David, and he will reign over Jacob’s descendants forever; his kingdom will never end.”(verse28-33), the privilege that she…

To Everyone Touched By Autism

To the parent who spend endless time at IEP meeting, therapies, classes, parent meetings and appointments, to the parent who stay up till the early hours in the morning reading to understand and aid your love one, to have to start the day in a short time, to the parent who spend sleepless nights in the hospital for countless reasons and still keep a smile on your face to keep your child at ease, to the parent who’s called at anytime of the day to get your child because they are having a meltdown, to the parent who has to see their loved one struggle to learn to eat, walk, drink, speak and potty train, to the parent who was never able to hold the child, touch the child, kiss the child until they fall into a deep enough sleep, to the parent who had to frantically look for their child in panic until the child was safe in her arms, to the parent who listen to the same sentences over and over even in her sleep, to the parent who had to explain a meltdown to anyone while at the same time keeping her child safe from others around her, to the parents who had to give in, not give up to keep the child from a meltdown as others around judge their parenting, to the parent who had to endure the pain of a bite, hair being ripped out or a kick without showing distress in their face no matter the pain, to the parent who cried endless nights for the reality of your child’s past, present and future, for the parent, friend and sister who had to deal with others problems and feel sympathy for others concerns when it was not an option for you, to that parent who sits in the back of a movie, party restaurants to have a path to exit at any time. We are super parents, one of a kind and as the list can go on and on we carry on with love in our hearts, the knowledge of a doctor and the wisdom of philosophers, the patience of a physiologist, the humor of a comedian and unconditional love of a child.
KUDOS to all who love someone with Autism!!!
