imprinted in my mind...

I met the loveliest woman yesterday...

I am on a committee with her and fell in love with her can do, generous spirit...

She is bright, articulate and full of this amazing energy...


She is one of those ladies that you know instantly has an intimate, loving relationship with the Savior...

She knows Him...

And it shows in her very being...


After the meeting was over, in closing,  she mentioned she has stage 4 bone cancer...

I would have never know it...

She definintely was not defined by it...

I am in awe...she is not afraid...she fights the disease and wants to live...

but she truly believes God.


I can only pray that I have the faith and grace that this beautiful soul possesses.

She is forever imprinted in my mind and on my heart.

I'm sure you know people like that...

I desire to be a person like that...

Drawn near to Thee,
Patty

She must be a very strong person. My husband's mother died from that when he was only 15. She was a sweet Christian woman, too and I wish I had known her.

Sometimes the greatest gift a person gives us is the example they set for us!
I remember a lady who sat at a restaurant table near my mother and I many years ago. I did not know her and yet the peace and gentleness that emanated from her face left such an impression on me that I still see it in my mind. I know now what put that glow upon her but at the time I had no clue. I hope some day I can be that example to someone else.
