Recently, I asked my neighbor Gretchen about her daughter Holly’s condition. Here is her reply:
“HOLLY IS HOME FROM THE HOSPITAL AND IN THE CARE OF HOSPICE. PAIN IS A PROBLEM. THEY GAVE HER A SERIES OF 3 MORE RADIATIONS AND PUT A PERMANENT DRAIN IN HER LUNG SO SHE CAN BREATHE BETTER.
SHE MAINTAINS HER FAITH AND EVEN HER SENSE OF HUMOR. WHEN I SENT HER II CORINTHIANS 5:1 “NOW WE KNOW THAT IF THE EARTHLY TENT WE LIVE IN IS DESTROYED, WE HAVE A BUILDING FROM GOD, AN ETERNAL HOUSE IN HEAVEN NOT BUILT BY HUMAN HANDS”; SHE REPLIES THAT THE HOSPITAL HAS JUST TWO SIZES OF HOSPITAL GOWNS, TEENY TINY ITSY BITSY 90 POUNDS SOAKING WET OR FAMILY OF 6 TENT.”
That’s Holly for you. What a wonderful example of joy from a saint saved by God’s loving grace. Please continue to pray for a miracle for Holly, and for God’s peace and comforting love to engulf her and her entire family.
If only I had half of Holly’s faith and outlook…
