In August we had Kay and her husband, Bill, over for supper. It was obvious that the tumor was taking a toll on her physically, but she was completely at peace and so happy to spend the evening with us.
There was no hint of grief or sorrow in either Kay or Bill, as we visited with them. I was amazed at all the blessings they shared with us... as the tumor had grown it had somehow suppressed the intense headaches Kay had been suffering with and she was able to sleep at night... they have heard from people whose lives they influenced 20 or 30 years ago and had no idea until now.
It has been just a little over 2 years ago since their son, Brad, was killed in Iraq. I was so amazed at the peace and serenity Bill and Kay exhibited at that time... and now this. I am convinced that only a close walk with the Lord can bring that kind of peace during such trying times.
Kay hugged me as they left that evening. She said, "Just remember God is always so much more gracious to us than we are to Him."
For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain.
