     I guess when you are able to see the difference between 'needs' and 'wants', and yet, not differentiate them, is when you begin to celebrate life. When you do not take a liking to your 'needs', they start weighing you down but you still have to do it (dragging your feet). When they become your 'want', you would 'do it now'. You then start appreciating the finer things in life. Easy to preach, hard to practice. As a quadriplegic, that seems to be the way of life! I look forward to live and not just exist.

     I hope you are a "believer", Justin!  In faith, I believe, your BEST days are to come!  All limbs functioning! 
    My HOPE in the Lord . . . Justice and Love for ALL!  Blessings:)

     Justin, I am a believer and I love the Lord so much...sometimes I get scared and then remind myself to leave it to the Lord. My HOPE is in the Lord also. Bless you! You are in my prayers about the ideas you shared about "wants" and "needs" That is also very true and I need to remind myself. God's peace to you Justin! Joyce
