About me

My name is Jonathan Craft. I have what they call cerebral palsy. Which really means that they don’t know how much of my disease will progress and there really is not that much out there on how to treat an adult with my handicap. So already I have over proceeded my life expectancy. And I have come to realize my days may be numbered. I have tried to make the best of my life. I think I know a lot about everything, but the truth is I just know a little bit about a bunch of stuff which sometimes can be a little dangerous. I have a college degree in organizational leadership and an associates degree in social work. I now have a problem getting a job because my handicap is so involved that I need some adaptations to even apply for a job. And I am having trouble with that, because the stuff( the technology) isn’t where I need it to be so that I could be successful at any job. So I am stuck in the waiting game. So that’s where this is what I consider my job until I can get a job. So any posts that you want me to research that relates to a handicap or to a current event in this world let me know and I will do it but the kicker is not everything is going to pass my approval. So I won’t research everything unless it passes my approval. So if your stuff doesn’t get pass my approval just change it a little bit and then try again. If you want me to research something contact me at and leave any suggestions or comments. Thank you for reading my blog.

Prayers Please !

Remember our church communities in prayer as we become one family ! As we enter a new liturgical year may we remember to include some sort of penance and reflection as we prepare to celebrate our Savior’s Birth ! We will all see his face whether at our death or at his return . With this in mind , will his expression be one of joy or dismay in how we have lived . Pray always for humility that we may humble ourselves and listen for his promptings in how we can draw nearer to him in all things .

Your Brother in Prayer, Jonathan

Peace VS Anger

If you look outside at nature, you cannot have anger. Because God put his beauty in nature and in us. If you look at our life, there is no mistakes. Peace vs anger is all about how we interpret the things that we experience. There is a study published in Proceedings of National Academy of Sciences that lists 30 human emotions. They are Admiration, Adoration, Aesthetic appreciation, Amusement, Anger, Anxiety, Awe, Awkwardness, Boredom, Calmness, Confusion, Craving, Disgust, Empathetic pain, Entrancement, Envy, Excitement, Fear, Happiness, Horror, Interest, Joy, Nostalgia, Romance, Sadness, Satisfaction, Sexual desire, Surprise, Sympathy and Triumph. In each emotion that we experience, there is opportunity for goodness. Emotions are not good or bad. It is how we respond to what we feel when we experience the emotion that makes it good or bad.

Our emotions let us know when we need to pay attention to ourselves. We can get help if needed. If you need help, get it. Many are afraid to seek help. My own experience is getting help is the best thing I ever did. There is even help on line and you do not have to leave your house to get it. The key is knowing you need help and to reach out. It is sometimes hard for handicapped people to even know they need help. My suggestion is to you; error on the side of caution. Get help before it gets too bad. My heart and thoughts are out there for those that are struggling.

Your loving brother,

Daily Post

If we become one on Earth, we can be more Christ like. Therefore heaven and earth will be one. I do not know how to achieve my goal. This world seems to be more self oriented. Modern technology is an end to the real world because we lose our personal connection with one another. We then lose our personal connection with God. Every time we choose to interact with another human being, we chose to interact with God. To interact with more people, we need to put down our phones and all other devices. Too much of a good thing can be bad.I view that this is where we are at. If our cell phones could be without texts and messages, I would be fine with that. It would be more like a house phone where we have to talk to one another. People would have to actually remember phone numbers to call. If you forgot the phone number, you would have to look it up. That would even build brain power by using more brain cells having to remember the phone numbers. I could go on and on, but I will stop there. Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. Just for your information, I will not be able to give you any more reasons at this time. You can find the reasons on the daily scriptures. I cannot copy and paste here because of copy right infringement. The readings are found in the bible every day that come from the daily mass. All of this helps ground me. I hope you find that it will ground you too.

May 25, 2022 Daily Mass

Pay special attention to today’s daily prayer. We don’t know how many people it affects. It directly affects some my family. It keeps affecting more families daily.

I’m sorry I do not know how to cut out the commercials.

My thoughts for today……

“Lord, I can’t go on,” he said. “I have too heavy a cross to bear.” The Lord replied, “My son, if you can’t bear it’s weight, just place your cross inside this room. Then, open that door and pick out any cross you wish.” The man was filled with relief and said, “Thank you Lord” and he did as he was told.

Many people think that their cross is too heavy, but if you pick another cross from the room, how do you know if it is really your cross? I think we would return to our cross given to us because we know that is truly our cross to carry. God has made me see my life in a different way.

Today’s personal message

I do not think a lot of people realize that every Sunday is a mini Easter. If they realize that, every Church would be full. If people would understand this, they would not shop for their clothes or go to work on Sunday. It would be like it used to be when Sunday was the day of rest. The only people working would be the priest. They work for the love of their Creator. And we will be back to treating everybody like equals. The way I see it, until we do this, there will be no peace on earth. There are several of us that are not happy with the way the world is today.

Your loving brother in Christ,

Jonathan Craft
