A girl I knew in college has now been in a wheelchair, paralyzed with MS, for nearly a year. In addition to waking up one day, suddenly unable to move her legs, she was four months pregnant, a pastor's wife, and already had five children!

Alicia's spirit and attitude is so inspiring... and convicting. If I were in that position, would I be as upbeat as she is? Her situation reminds me to be grateful that I can still walk... and for the loads of blessings God gives me daily (Psalm 68:19).

If you're feeling ungrateful or grumbly, check out her blog at


  1. Thank you so much for this post! We need to be reminded that circumstances don't control our happiness it's our reaction to them that does.


  2. Thanks for reading, Joyful! :) Blessings to you too.

  3. My name is Dayna Guenther. I am a preacher's kid from Flint MI. How absolutely incredible to find another "me".

  4. Wow! Cool! Does your family have a company Guenther Homes near Ann Arbor? My husband started Guenther Homes ( here in Ontario in 1986 and is also a pastor. Small world, eh?


I so appreciate your comments and personal emails regarding this blog. It is a blessing to me to hear if something with which God has blessed me also blesses you!
