A Pair of Heels and a Little Jewelry

I have a friend Carol who loves to dress up, wear high heels and always has beautiful costume jewelry to accessorize each outfit...I mean the woman wears hose for heaven's sake!

She was diagnosed some time back with lung cancer which had spread to her brain. Her sister in law went to visit yesterday, Carol was sitting in her wheelchair on the back porch enjoying the hummingbirds...wearing you guessed it:

PJ's
Heels
Earrings, Necklace, and Bracelet

In the midst of the sadness, what a great spark of joy...a visual which will stay with me for years, because in this visual I can see Carol's smile as well.

I pray for the peace of God to fill her and her family and friends. I pray for the Lord to pour out His comfort and mercy on us all. Most epecially, I pray for Him to touch her with His healing hand of grace on her and I pray for her spiritual, physical, and mental comfort.

I hold dear His Covenant promises, I know where she will be, I know He has not dropped her in the grease and He will never do so...

His Word says:

Then Jesus declared, "I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will never go hungry, and he who believes in me will never be thirsty. But as I told you, you have seen me and still you do not believe

My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one can snatch them out of my hand. My Father, who has given them to me, is greater than all[a]; no one can snatch them out of my Father's hand.

Carol sounds like an amazing -- and fun -- person. Bless you both in your friendship, and may God minister to Carol in every way...

In spite of the sadness, this is really such an uplifting, encouraging post Annette. I pray the Father will bless your friend in a very special way.

You have to love a woman who believes in a little jewelry and heels. He is our God of hope. Thank you for writing again. Your perspective is as welcome as a fresh breeze of Spirit on a parched face. I hope you're back into blogging again. Love, Annette
