During the last few weeks…we have seen our family, friends, church body, and community come together to bless our family in a very difficult time. There is no way I can express how loved we feel and how blessed we are to have complete strangers stand in the gap for us through prayer, financial donations, building a ramp, providing suppers, providing groceries, carting kids around, buying necessities, and so much more.
We are, generally, the givers and doers…the hands and feet of Jesus…so this is all new to us. This is not the path we would have chosen for our family, but it is what it is and I will not love Jesus any less for this trial we are walking through. I do not say “why us”…I say “why not us.” Who better to walk this path than our family. We are being taught great things. We are being blessed right and left.
We are humbled by the graciousness and love. We would love for this illness to just be a season of our lives, but it may be our new way of normal. We hope that, one day, when we get used to our new life, that we will be able to serve others in the way we have been served.
Here is part of the Marshall County Ramp Ministry Team. What a blessing.
And here is Ms. Marcella founder of Marcella’s Kitchen. She and her team of volunteers are an amazing blessing to our family.
