After 40 years of being deaf and hearing nothing but white noise, Joanne Milne, 40, of Gateshead, England heard music and the sound of her own voice for the first time after an operation last month and she trembled and cried because it was all so amazing.
Milne, who was born with a rare genetic disorder called the Usher Syndrome, also began losing her sight to the disease during her 20s, according to The Journal and is also legally blind.
"Being deaf was just who I was. Unfortunately, when I became registered blind things changed dramatically and for the first time being deaf became increasingly difficult," said Milne. more >>
Unity. There is great power in being of one mind. In fact, it was so important to Jesus that in John 17:22-23 he prayed:
"The glory which You have given Me I have given to them, that they may be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me." (NASB)
Perhaps this is why that out of all the enemy's tools we must make sure to guard against division. Division destroys friendships, families, ministries, churches, and businesses. more >>

A Halifax man trying to do a bit of good has been taken into the custody of a psychiatric hospital. Friends and family say that he is being held against his will and was just trying to brighten people's day in his own unique way.
Richard Wright was handing out money to strangers on the street, telling them to "thank God" for the gift if they needed it and to pass it along if they didn't. The Prince Edward Island Royal Canadian Mounted Police were called to take Wright into custody in order to perform a psychological evaluation or "wellness check" on the man. After talking with Wright, they determined that he needed "further assessment by a medical health person."
However, Wright's daughter, Chelsea, told Metro News that her father does not need psychological help and merely wanted to help people by brightening their day. She added that her father is being unfairly treated by authorities and should be released. Chelsea organized a Facebook page with the title "OpFreeRichardWright" in order to bring awareness to his cause. So far the page has over 4,000 members. more >>
