Letters to the Editor
Dear family, friends, and acquaintances:
‘Oh that He may count me faithful in the day that tries by fire!’
—Albert Orsborn, SA Songbook, 522
This is the prayer of my heart, as I feel that I’ve been through ‘the fire!’
I’m overwhelmed by your continued prayer support that has sustained me throughout this long health journey, which continues even today. Thank you for your wonderful calls, notes, cards, flowers, and gift baskets. To all of my friends overseas whom I have yet to meet, but who pray for me daily, please accept my heartfelt thanks.
Having lost the ability to speak for many weeks, I am determined now to always speak with words of love and kindness. Psalm 19:14 resonates, ‘Let the words of my mouth, and the meditation of my heart, be acceptable in thy sight, O Lord my strength and my redeemer.’
Sarah Ben Breathnach says, ‘If you give thanks for five gifts every day, in two months you will look at life differently.’
You all have touched my life! I pray that one day when I am in good health, I can pay you back in some way.
May God bless you with great abundance!
