She was afraid, horribly afraid.
Her husband stood at her side holding her hand
faithful as always, but
the time came for her to be wheeled away.
Her cancer surgery grew nigh. No further
could he advance, and she was alone. But was she?
Had she not put her faith in One
who can be closer than a brother? As she closed her
eyes and silently whispered a prayer, the last
thing she remembered was feeling His sweet, powerful
presence. Boldly He had entered where nobody
was allowed to come.
Oh, the perks of being invisible!
