When he got to the part of the talk that dealt with Depression, he called a Brother who wears glasses up onto the platform to illustrate the point he was going to make.
Speaker: "Short Sightedness is an inherited imperfection and no matter how hard I tried to motivate him, he can NOT see that distance. Depression is also a Biomedical Condition that will last until the new world, same as his short-sightedness. We cannot motivate people with Depression by saying 'try harder!' or 'think positive!" It doesn't change anything for them.
Paul counselled us in 1 Thess 5:14 : "speak consolingly to the depressed souls, support the weak, be long-suffering toward ALL."
In New York where I lived, there is a brother who is a Psychologist, and has several patients. CONSOLINGLY means SOOTHINGLY. That is how to treat the many among us with depression or related invisible illnesses."
Ties That Bind Doll Raffle is now open!
It was one year ago that they began this project. Everyone pitched in with their art. Now it's time to pitch in again by donating and spreading the news! Remember this is a tax deductible donation! Give big. Give often.
THAT IS ONLY 6 PEOPLE DONATING PER ARTIST.
Our mission is simple in concept. Artists united in their creativity to benefit Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Our project: Ties That Bind. A hand made doll created with heart and soul, donning hand embellished men's dress ties and hand born charms. 100% of the profit goes to the OCRF, in support of their mission to help ovarian cancer patients and their loved ones.
Jan Brown did an amazing job in creating this art doll from every one's contributions. Aileen Roberts kept us all up to date with the pictures of items submmitted on the Ties That Bind blog. Kris Henderson did behind the scenes work that took time and effort. We either submitted charms or an altered tie. I understand the T-T-B Doll is on her way to the publishers to have a photo shoot. I will definitely want to pick up that issue.
My contributions were these three pieces. For fun see if you can find them in the above pictures.

"Daguerreotypes are unmistakeable. They were made on silver-plated copper sheets so they reflect just like mirrors. Any photograph cased behind glass is going to be shiny and reflect light, and this effect doubtless leads to many misidentifications on ebay, but Daguerreotypes are not merely shiny; they actually reflect images as clearly as any hand mirror does." info from EBAY
