Editor’s Note: For a couple of years, I have had this poetic song rising up, in times of anxiety and stress. For me, I enjoy singing; hence, I am calling this poem, a poetic song. You are free to have a different opinion.
Why am I releasing it, now? It just seems the time is right. I hope and pray this tuneful poem will bless those, who read it. If you are a songwriter or singer, then please feel free to make it into an actual song.
Enjoy!

Can Someone Guide Me, To A Seat?

Whenhttp://inspiration-point.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/disabilitiescoveradultpbd.jpg1386212952 I wrote “Can We Talk About Disabilities?”, I did not imagine the response that I’d get, in terms of site traffic. My friends certainly picked a good topic. If you read the article, you’ll notice that I covered a broad range of issues relating to disability.

How shall I take on, such a large endeavor? For me, I can best talk through the lens of personal experience and the lens of Scripture, when appropriate. If possible, I’ll try to include other people. I’m not the only person, with a story to share.

For this story, I’d like to share with you, a very important issue, for people with disabilities. How many people with obvious physical disabilities have you seen in an organized church setting? Could the issue be one of reasonable accommodation?

Everyone needs help; including the blinds, the paraplegics, the deaf and so many others. Are we not to think of others, more highly than ourselves? This includes those people, who we consider weak. It’s for this reason that I like the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Though the ADA brought about sweeping reform; it can’t guide you to a seat in a dark room. Can someone please guide me to a seat? I love the music; however, I can’t see. Here’s what happened on one Sunday morning. Continue reading

Can We Talk About Disabilities?

01-13-2010 04;49;32PMSome good friends have asked, “Why don’t you write about overcoming adversities that stem from your disabilities?” I am admittedly confused by this request.

It’s because I thought I have been writing about it?  Haven’t I?  I do know what’s being talked about. It’s the practical side of encouragement; rather than just spiritual food.

How I love a good challenge! There is just one problem. We need to talk with each other. This begs the question. How shall we talk about the adversities relating to disabilities?

What would you like to know? To be honest, I really don’t know how to approach topic; as I’m not seeking to be confrontational on disability related issues. If the story warrants it, then I’ll mention my physical limitations; otherwise, it disappears.

Are you interested in such a direct dialogue? If so, then I will ask this question. What would you like to know? Should I have been more direct, when writing “A Lesser Human“? My disabilities were very much a part of that story.

What would you like to know? Continue reading

Michael Zigarelli’s How To Encourage Others

http://inspiration-point.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/08/photo1.jpgToday, I’d like to try something new. How would you like to watch a video on “How to Encourage Others”? I thought the videos would make a nice addition to Inspiration Point.

If you watched my earlier attempts to create videos, then you know that I didn’t do so well. As my gift is in writing, it was a no brainer. However, there are people that can do a far better job than I. So, what is this video about? Continue reading

Is Heaven For Real? Thoughts On The Movie

Look at Earth from the HeavenA few weeks ago, I got to see “Heaven Is For Real” with some friends. After I watched the movie, it seems a good movie to talk about.

What is “Heaven Is For Real”? It’s a movie starring Greg Kinnear. He plays the father of a little boy, named Colton. Connor Corum plays the role of Todd’s son, Colton.

Unless you have been hiding under a rock, there is a good chance that you have heard of this movie. For me, it has been the subject of many pleasant conversations. It seems a nice move about the reality of Heave; as seen through the eyes of a four year old little boy.

Did you know that this film has stirred up some controversy? I’ll explain it, shortly.
