John with his platform walker in Saint Pierre just 2 months after he started his battle against brain cancer. Yes, he was 20 years old and unable to walk on his own due to the biopsy through the back of his brain that caused him to still stagger due to ataxia! A truly humble badge of what he went through to find his Faith... and aren't we called to be humble?
Family support was only second to his Faith/prayer warriors! Many thoughts and prayers this day for John as he prepares to fly to Chicago and give his testimony in a splashy catchy promotional video! Our prayer is that it will reach many and allow him to share "Our Story, Lord." Yes! Jesus, we trust in you. Bless-bless, Barb
Come to the LIVING WATERS of LIFE//LOVE/LIGHT!
I am just back from going to pick up a part in a town about half an hour away... the best! I managed to find such peace and JOY in my chapel on wheels and got in 5 of my 10 decades of my rosary as the wind beneath my wings as I traveled through the beautiful plentiful fields of green with well manicured and loved building sites interspersed between, and herds of cows and calves in belly deep grass. My prayers for my 5 children, their families, and those special intentions that are attached to each one... on John's decade are many that are fighting their own battle against cancer... one special friend just went on hospice and discovered that having their expert help actually helps get to a better more comfortable and even better place. It is certainly hard to come to the place of saying that you are dying and need the hospice care, but it is so good in quality of LIFE in those final months or weeks. The sooner they can get involved the better for the person and their family. I know!
Today in the Gospel and the first reading Jesus/The Lord is standing beside both Jacob in his dream on the stairway to heaven and the dead little girl brought back to life, and the woman with the bleeding for 12 years healed when she merely believed that touching him would heal her, and it was true! How we have experienced that ourselves in all of our lives, and now John wants to share that and help the world come to know this Jesus! They informed him that they have a dark deserted church to film his lack of faith and a glorious vibrant beautiful one to film his finding his Catholic Faith. Most movies you see use those beautiful Catholic churches in this way - to share the amazing beauty of candles, statues, altars, stain glass and beautiful architecture to bring our hearts and minds to the soaring heights of touching a small slice of heaven here on earth! Yes, Lord! I am so excited that John could reach more with this project! Go forth with him as you share your story - Jesus and John go forth to change the world one person at a time! Hear our prayer!
