Encounters

Sitting in the Gazebo, on the third floor of MD Anderson, watching the rain softly falling; I thought about moments earlier when I had gotten on the elevator on the forth floor, a young women asked me what floor, and I told her the 3rd. The door closed and she looked at me, beginning to cry and said, "my day is not good", "my mother won't be with us long!" You know that if you never understand the reason you are in the position you are in, at that moment you reach out to a total stranger/friend, and you feel her pain. In the 45 seconds it took to reach my floor and the elevator door opened, I told her that I would be praying for her and I would pray for her mother.

Mighty God, Maker of heaven and earth, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Wrap your loving arms around this young women and her mother. Give her Your peace. You alone decides when our time on earth is finished and eternity begins. In the name of your Son, Jesus Christ. Amen


Please pray for my new friend.......

God has His plan for our lives..He meant for you to meet that girl..That's the way He runs things from above...You didn't have to say anything..but you did and that's being surrendered..
Love you, md
