Participating in miracles....
Monday, October 18, 2010
Not many people will ever witness a miracle...let alone be a part of some....miracle
a surprising and welcome event that is not explicable by natural or scientific laws and is therefore considered to be the work of a divine agency.
• a highly improbable or extraordinary event, development, or accomplishment that brings very welcome consequences.
Judy E. is a walking miracle. Literally.
After being diagnosed with extensive pancreatic cancer in 2006 and having 60% of her pancreas removed, she was given only 1 year to live, at best. She's had 13 liver tumors, is now an insulin dependent diabetic and has undergone lots of experimental treatment options, but is still fighting. She says, "I come from a long line of fighters. My outcome isn't good, but until I decide I don't want to continue anymore, here I am! God doesn't give us anymore than we can handle."
And she's participated in a miracle. Literally, or at least her hand did. She's NEVER
drawn anything in her life, but one day, she said she felt 'inspired' to pick up a rugged, carpenters pencil and found a piece of cotton fabric. In the span of three hours, she drew this rendering of Christ on the fabric..."as if someone else was moving my hand. I couldn't put it down." It's almost life-like and the eyes 'see' you as you look at it....
Judy is a miracle. She's full of life, despite the cancer that threatens her life daily. "Cancer is just a word. There is another miracle waiting for me."
I don't doubt it.
