Answered prayers

Dear Wayne and Christy,

We are so glad we got to visit you both again in June. Christy, you asked me then to pray two things for you: that you would not be grouchy, and that you would be a testimony to those around you for the Lord. I am awed at God's answers to those prayers, to think that even in your pain and immobility you can smile and say you are here to "thank Him and praise Him for everything He's done." What a wonderful fragrance it is to the Lord to see you still rejoicing in Him and praising Him! It is a powerful testimony to us as well as to those around you. We know your confidence is not in yourself, but rather in the Lord Jesus, who came to earth to die so that you could go to Heaven and live. "Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name, thou art mine" Isaiah. 43:1. We know He is holding your hand.

You are both always in our love and prayers,

Bruce and Bonnie Imbeau

Yes, Christy not only has NOT been grouchy, she has been exceptionally happy and sweet and joyful in the Lord, so much so that she has a reputation with the doctors, nurses, and staff at the hospice as well as with friends and visitors. It is to the praise and glory of God her Savior that He has given her the peace and joy that she has at such a time as this!
One of Christy's favorite verses she often shared with me was "My (the Lord's) grace is sufficient for thee, for my strength is made perfect in weakness." If only she could comprehend now that now His strength is made perfect in her weakness and it is being shown in a powerful way for His glory! She may just find out when she is with Him face to face, maybe very soon, how He was able to use her, and she will be so overjoyed.
