I’m honored to be over at the lovely site, I Love Devotionals. I first met Wendy, the founder of the site, via our mutual involvement as writers for iBelieve.com. I quickly felt a connection with her, as she is South African, and has had to walk the journey as a cancer caregiver. Wendy’s husband was diagnosed shortly after their wedding, and much of her writing and the devotions on her site have been inspired by her experience. Click on over and check out her beautiful site!
We were having a Ladies Coffee Morning at our church, and I was the MC. To be honest, I can’t even remember what the topic was for the morning.
I just remember her testimony.
I had asked a friend of mine, a college student at the time, to share her story. She stood up to the podium, and the microphone amplified her voice throughout the church hall.
She told us how her mom had died recently.
And how, when she had heard the news, she didn’t know what she was going to do.
How she was going to cope.
How she would ever make it through this deep, dark valley.
