Life on The Rock

22 Jul

Over a week ago I wrote Perspective

Uncle Sam & boysI have so appreciated watching Tim shepherd Aunt Dee through these hard days!

She is amazing! – a true pillar of strength
a living example of building a life on the Solid Rock
so when the storm of life hit her,
and she lost her best friend and husband of 71 years,
she was not  – and IS NOT –  shaken.
Mt 7:24-27

Today, Monday, she boarded a plane for Philadelphia and the funeral service.
And that’s an answer to prayer.
Because Saturday she was in the hospital getting a blood transfusion.

But God not only answered her prayer about getting to go to the funeral.

  • Before she left this morning she was able to connect with an international couple she and Uncle Sam had befriended years ago, which lifted her spirits. She was able to share Jesus with them once again.
  • On the way to the airport she shared Jesus with the driver from the funeral home. As she got out of the car she said, “Now Chris, make sure you go to church.”
  • I’m sure there will be stories of how she shared about God on the plane!

We continue to marvel at how God is holding her up, how she depends on Him, gives Him praise, and speaks about Him to anyone and everyone she meets.

As you read this, would you pray for Aunt Dee?
It’s been a long month,
and Tuesday, July 23, 2013 she will bury her love,
her life partner of 71 years.
Thanks for holding her up before the Throne of Grace!
