Her story ended as it began, with hope, but with certainly while living with cancer, an affirmation, a belief, praise – “I expect new flowers to be seeded in this storm.”
Not mere hope, a prayer; a statement of assurance, experience the presence of God in the story of her life knowing He is with her as He has been the good He has done through her trials
May these words, sharing her faith as I internalize her message, read weeks ago, may these words, prolong her life, her garden seeded as she has sown, watered with my affirmation
God, as is always true, provides the growth. May her witness reap a harvest a bouquet of flowers seeded in this storm, worthy for the Lord.
