Anyway, I want to share for my Ebeneezer Stone. Last Sunday we had the opportunity to write a thankful note on a leaf, and put it up on a tree in the front of church. Les wanted me to write that he was thankful for the "joy of his salvation". I did, and I hung that leaf. At the Wednesday evening service, Roger mentioned how thankful he was for the joy of his salvation, AND how we as Christians so often kinda forget about that, and that thankfulness/joy gets put on the back burner. I thought back to Les' thankful leaf, and I thought, how true! When you are faced with dying, what would you be thankful for??? More than likely you would be most thankful for the joy of your salvation. As is Les. We right now are thankful for many things, but nothing else matters as much as that hope.
Les has been saying for months, since he could not swallow ANYTHING, that he was going to eat mashed potatoes and sit with his family at Thanksgiving. For a long time that did not seem possible. And just last week he was told to eat thin liquids only. Well, if you know Les, this will not surprise you:
|HE CLEANED HIS PLATE!!!!!|
