2 Corinthians 11:25 “Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;”
2 Corinthians 11:26 “[In] journeyings often, [in] perils of waters, [in] perils of robbers, [in] perils by [mine own] countrymen, [in] perils by the heathen, [in] perils in the city, [in] perils in the wilderness, [in] perils in the sea, [in] perils among false brethren;”
…From yesterday…
Eventually, after much planning and doggedness, they excitedly set about the massive project. They hired their crew and began building their dream bridge.
The project started well, but when it was only a few months underway, a tragic accident on the site took the life of John Roebling. Washington was also seriously injured and was left with a certain amount of brain damage, which resulted in him not being able to walk or talk or even move.
Guess the responses of people?  Your guess is as good as mine, people chanted;
“We told them so.”
“Crazy men and their crazy dreams.”
“It’s foolish to chase wild visions.” 
Everyone had a negative comment to make and felt that the project should be scrapped since The Roeblings were the only ones who knew how the bridge could be built.
In spite of his handicap, Washington was never discouraged and still had a burning desire to complete the bridge, as his mind was still as sharp as ever. He tried selling the idea and pass on the enthusiasm to some of his friends, but they were too daunted by the task. Washington however didn’t give up despite his challenges. He felt there would be a way out,
Now the interesting part!
All the younger Roebling could do was move one finger and he was suddenly hit by an idea as he lay on his hospital bed. Since he could only move one finger, he decided to make the best use of it. He slowly developed a code of communication with his wife!
To be continued…
