Stroke survivor uses right arm - leg after 3 years

GLORY TO OUR LORD AND SAVIOR< JESUS > Yeshua HaMeshiach Thousands of miles away, my drums beat with America - the ear drums as much as my heart rhythm: news of abuse A mild term for what some (a minority, surely) police do When they can get away with murder, or "crucifying a man" - But when I am called to pray - here at the Senior Center - I jump to it, my raison d'etre, my thanks to Jesus As I did again today, for Tanie Dora. Mama Lilian had a testimony: Her right arm, she lifted high, to show what prayer had done (She had asked me to pray for her right leg, but now GLORY! Her entire right side is responding, and moving, joyful story!) Three years later, in her faith, Lilian believes Jesus will "restore" So Wendy and I, prayer partners for a few months now, rejoice In our LORD who still performs signs and wonders - imperfect voice Of mine, and Wendy praying in Afrikaans, we deliver a one-two punch To the dark side, in Jesus' Name. How good to also know Jesus is the same always, even as our planet plunges in this or that Tragedy wrought by human hands. What can God do with hate, our fear Unless we trust Him for he says, "Come ... I will give you rest" * the burden Lay at the foot of the Cross. If we hearken, we often pick the load again And take it on our journey through the day. He will not violate Our freedom to do as we will; even our freedom to fear and hate! NOTE: * Matthew 11:28
