Learning to trust God is a scary proposition. I believe if we could really get a bigger picture of who God is and how he works, through his love and compassion for us, we would have an easier time of trusting him. This event occurred on February 5, 1981 . Gene had to quit work due to health problems. We were traveling back and forth to SA for doctors appointments to try and determine the cause of dizzy, passing out spells. This particular weekend, I had picked him up from the hospital to spend the weekend with us and he was to be back Monday morning at 8:00. I had exactly $6.00 to my name. Keep reading to see how God multiplied my measly $6.00 to get us to SA, just like he multiplied the 5 loaves and 2 fish to feed 5000.
I'm mourning the loss of my dearest and oldest friend. I’ve known this lady for 45 years. I met her shortly after I met my husband. He adored her and I learned to love her as well. Her name is Janette and she is my husband’s mother. There is a bond between us that cannot be described with words. I’ve tried, and there are none that can describe the bond we had. It’s funny; we had nothing in common really, except that she and I loved the same man, her son…my husband. She taught me so much. I can’t imagine what it would have been like to get a telegram from the U.S. government stating your son is wounded and describing his injuries, with him being thousands of miles away on the other side of the world and her being at the mercy of the government to keep her informed. I can’t imagine.
