From Christy's nurse

I will never forget the first day I met Christy. She was lying on her bed at our hospice with her Bible opened and a wide smile on her face. There was this pure aura around her that moved my spirit. She is an epitome of a Godly woman. She has a smile and a kind word for everyone despite her physical pains. 1Timothy 6:11. Before I met Christy, my prayer and wishes were that "may I not die when I am not sure of heaven." After I met her, that prayer changed to "when you are ready to take me home Lord, let people around me be sure that I am going to heaven." It is obvious that at the end of Christy's journey here on earth , she is going home to be with the Lord. It is a privilege and honour to be one of her caregivers. As Wayne and Christy go through this journey with love and faith, my prayers and thoughts are with you.

"How much lighter trials become when we realise God's grace is twofold. It is not only the happy ending, it is also the peace we can feel during a painful journey, when we trust in God - all the way" - Doris Haase.

Wayne,
From looking at this blog, I was also pleasantly surprised to find out that Pearl who was my favourite resident while I worked at Pinegrove Place was(is?) your mum. I worked at Pinegrove Place for 3 yrs.
I have seen a lot of changes in Christy these past few days and I am sure you are aware of what it means too.Take care Wayne, and may the peace of God that passeth understanding be with you.(amen)
