    The Seedbed Daily Wake-Up Call, November 19, 2022

    Yes, I have known other people in situations like Jeanne’s. I have a friend who suffers with ALS. My first love, Susan, suffered from a debilitating terminal illness. I watched her go from a vibrant, active, in charge woman of God (A Martha) to becoming barely able to walk across the room.

    What encourages and challenges me about Jeanne’s story, my friend with ALS, and especially Susan is the steadfast nature of their faith and that they never gave in to their circumstances. Susan could no longer be a Martha, but she was an exemplary Mary. When her illness limited her mobility, she found ways around it and she retreated to her prayer closet where she prayed for others for hours and hours. Her final request of me was to build her a “prayer shed,” it was my final act of love for her. Even though she only got to use it a few times, she finished her race strong and well. Lord, grant it that I would finish as well.
