Today I had the priviledge of sharing Faith and fellowship with good friends at our weekly prayer gathering.
Several of us have been gathering at the home of a friend who is dealing with the effects of a severe brain bleed, for several years.
She is such an inspiration and I am so blest to know her.
One of the things that comes up in conversation is her desire to be able to serve others the way she used to.
There is so much that we take for granted, as people who have never dealt with a true disability, but I think that there is so much to be learned from the experience of those who have, and sometimes we can receive the greatest gifts from them. She serves. She really does.
I pray that my friend will be healed. I know that God can do this, and I believe that He will, but while we are waiting, the witness of this dear friend, and her husband, is a light that shines for me. I am brought to a sense that we are all a part of a story, and her role is one of the most important.
She perseveres. She loves. She struggles, but she keeps hoping.
Hope is such a beautiful gift.
So is friendship.
Hope and Friendship.
Thank You Jesus.
