With Much Love~Sharon
Monday, May 21, 2007
A new week has begun.7 more days.Full of the unknown at this point.As I read my Bible this morning it felt dry to me.Like a dry,barren desert.Void of water.Void of life.As I prayed for friends and family needing healing I prayed that healing would come so that they may better reflect His glory;better serve Him.God spoke"My glory is best reflected in those who still serve Me,love Me in spite of their affliction.Wow!Sometimes He is glorified better through obviously flawed people?He is better praised through the less than beautiful vessels(world's standards of beauty anyhow)?Yes!This makes me think of pottery that is unglazed.Pottery that is not quite symmetrical.Imperfect physically.But somehow still beautiful.Still able to be used.Still reflecting His glory.And still able to carry the treasure that is His presence within these earthen vessels.What a blessing that is.What hope that offers all of us really.That He can still use us in spite of our flaws,imperfections and failures as humans.Glory to His name!
"But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all surpassing power is from God and not from us."II Corinthians 4:7(NIV)

I recieved some news today that has left me stunned.Shocked and saddened.A Christian friend of mine has just been informed by her doctors that she has only a few months left to live.Colon cancer is slowly attempting to take her life.It appears she may have had it for awhile now.Unaware except for some occasional stomach cramps.She and her husband had recently gone with his mother on a trip to Alabama from New Jersey where they live.When they returned my friend(also named Sharon)was extremely fatigued.Not feeling well at all.Doctors found a rather large tumor on the left side of her transverse colon.That would explain so much of what she's been feeling.She's stunned and afraid.She does'nt want to leave her husband behind.I understand that feeling.So please keep my friend Sharon and her husband in your prayers.I still believe God can heal her.I will continue to pray for that.
