Quote about Voices From The Shadows

There was recently a screening of the film Voices From The Shadows at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine. After watching the film Dr Eliana Lacerda from the CFS/ME Observatory at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine made the following comment - 

Voices from the Shadows is a poignant documentary, which unveils the reality of people with severe ME/CFS and their carers... We hope that this type of initiative helps to promote a revision of preconceptions about ME/CFS in health researchers and professionals, and to bring renewed interest for research in this field, particularly in light of mounting biomedical research evidence in ME/CFS."

If you have yet to see Voices From The Shadows, I would urge you to get a copy of the DVD – for further information please go to -

Immortal honours rest on Jesus’ head

Time for another favourite hymn -

Immortal honours rest on Jesus’ head;
My God, my portion, and my living bread;
In Him I live, upon Him cast my care;
He saves from death, destruction, and despair.

He is my refuge in each deep distress;
The Lord my strength and glorious righteousness;
Through floods and flames He leads me safely on,
And daily makes His sovereign goodness known.

My every need He richly will supply,
Nor will His mercy ever let me die;
In Him there dwells a treasure all divine,
And matchless grace has made that treasure mine.

O, that my soul could love and praise Him more,
His beauties trace, His majesty adore;
Live near His heart, upon His bosom lean;
Obey His voice, and all His will esteem.

William Gadsby, 1773 – 1844
