Hi Bill, no need for I’m sorry. I had cancer a few years back and was told that I had a 17% change of being alive in 5 years (10+ years ago). I know the thoughts that can hit you. I also know just how much God loves you and that is so much more than you can imagine. Rest in His peace. We’ll meet in Heaven someday. May God richly bless you and your family. Love in Christ, Bruce.
Thank you, Bruce. I’m so glad you survived!
Hi Bill, I just discovered your blog. I wish I could give you a hug. I’ll drop you a line in a couple of days when my work shifts are done. Jesus commanded that as Christians we love one another and you are so easy to love. Also thinking of your wife and children. You and your family are in my prayers starting tonight. God bless you all. No need to reply.
Hi Bill, I see that my comment is still awaiting moderation so I am assuming you are dealing with more important issues. Not to worry, may God bless richly you and your family.
Thank you very much, Bruce, for your encouraging comments and for your prayers. I’m sorry I was so slow to reply.
Miss your blogs. Haven’t heard from you since November 2015. I pray that all’s well. Any nuggets of wisdom you’d like to share??
Karen, thank you so much for your concern and for your prayers.
thanks Bill. it’s been a while I haven’t posted anything on my blog site. thanks for reminding me. hope i could write again soon. *smile* Gid bless
Thank you for sharing, Bill, the reason for the hope that is within you.
Thank you, Bette.
Love you dude!
This is for you, God Bless!
Awesome! Love it. Thank you so much, my friend.
I was recently diagnosed with ALS and am so hungry for fellow believers to share with. I have recently begun to write a blog also. You can find it at stones424.wordpress.com. Thanks for writing about your journey. Kathy
I’m SO sorry for your diagnoses, Kathy. I’m looking forward to following your blog. God bless you.
How I enjoy reading your blog. It’s so comforting to me.
The problem is, I can’t seem to be able to get your latest post even though I have your blog on my iPhone screen. Is there some way I can get on a list to get your latest posts?
God bless you.
Thank you for your encouragement, Rosie. If you look on the right hand side of my blog, there should be a follow button where you can put in your email address. Maybe it’s not visible on a phone? I’ve never had a smart phone, but I’ll ask my wife to show me what my blog looks like on her phone.
Dear Bill, I want you to know how much I appreciate that you are reading my blog posts. You and your family are in my prayers. I always look forward to reading whatever you post.
Thank you, Beckie, for your comments and for your prayers.
Hi thanks for the like. I have a story about ALS and several on trees! Take care!
Thank you for visiting my blog, Myrna.
Hello Bill! I just sent you a rather wordy invitation asking if you would consider writing a guest post for my blog – DoseDependent – on the topic of hope in unchanging circumstances but I think I messed it up because on my phone so I thought I would try again!
Please let me know if you are interested as I would be greatly honored if you were able.
Julie, I’m sincerely honored by your invitation to be a guest blogger on your blog, but I cannot make any commitments right now – I’m struggling to keep up with just my blog and email… right now.
Thank you so much for the invitation.
Dear Bill, thank you for responding. I can understand why you say that; I find it very difficult as well … it took me two months from the time I decided to ask you til I sent the message! So no worries. I love reading your posts and seeing how God is moving in your life. Please accept an open invitation to write for my blog if you should ever find the time to do so.
Thank you for understanding, Julie. Thank you also for the open invitation.
I mentioned your fabulous site in my blog-posting today and was sure to link my readers to you! I hope many others will find you (and your sharing,) to be as delightful as I do!
Thank you for the continued inspiration!
Hugs & Blessings!
Thank you so much, Dawn Marie. Sorry it’s taken me so long to reply.
As one who has suffered a deep valley with illness spanning over 40 years I am blown away by your courage and grace through these pages. Jesus is alive and well in you,
your spirit shines, his grace abides. I am blessed to find your thoughts
In his love
Thank you so much, Lynn.
I really enjoyed finding your blog and reading your writings. You are truly an inspiration! I look forward to hearing more from you. ~Rita
Thank you very much, Rita.
Hi, Bill – I just watched your ice bucket challenge and it was great. My son was supposed to pour a small pail of ice water over me and instead he substituted a five gallon pail. I survived but took me a long time to warm up. His grandson did the challenge with me, five years old, and after he said, “I thought it was going to be hot”. I’m starting a second blog – title: The Eternal Optimist. That’s me. PTL.
I love your attitude!
Thinking about you today Bill! I was challenged to do the ice bucket thing. Instead, for some reason, I just couldn’t. It seems everyone’s doing it and people are starting to ignore the videos. So I posted on Facebook some thoughts of real people I know who have struggled or are struggling with ALS. A friend/former boss and my father-in-law and you. I shared your link with my friends and asked them to visit your site to find out why you still have unshakable hope. I know you are a strong Christian, but I do pray this morning, that you and your family would be comforted and reminded of your true hope, Jesus. I also pray that you will be encouraged by your purpose. I believe the Lord has given you a great ministry and you have touched many people’s lives through your blog and ministry. Blessings to you and your family. We’re all inspired by what God has done in your heart. You are able to pull back the veil between the spiritual and physical in a way we may not be able to so easily. You help your readers to see the true spiritual realities of this life. Thank you for striving to encourage us while you fight this battle.
Thank you, Amy, for your encouraging comments and for your prayers. God bless.
Hey Bill! I have finally had a chance to stop by your blog. Thank you for all of your encouragement. I feel like your blog will be a well- visited stop during our journey with ALS. Since we just started this hard battle, we are encouraged to know someone going through or who went through what we are facing. Thank you for being vulnerable and taking the time to reach out and educate. I am still getting the hang of using wordpress, so I may inquire about some settings that we would like to add to our page. May God bless you and your family.
-Hugs!- The Dobos’
Thank you so much. I hope and pray that you guys are well (haven’t seen a post from you in a while).
