Miracles Do Happen

Coincidence or God-Incidence?
Coincidence or God-Incidence?

Ever decide to do something at the last minute, like an unplanned errand or something simple like that, and find yourself in a set of circumstances that just feels like God had planned it all along?

Last Friday was like that. Went to my Church to reserve a booth for the September Women’s Expo, and ran into Kim, the wife of Ralph, who selflessly lead our Men’s & Women’s Emmaus groups.

Kim and Ralph have a niece in Miami. And Bella is a miracle. The only person ever, in the history of the world to survive a very rare form of cancer.

Kim had in her hand one of only three copies of Bella’s book, “Why (Not) Me?”

With 180,000 books written each year and 80-million blogs and growing, not to mention Facebook, texting, email, jobs, news channels, You Tube……

Selling a book is next to impossible. All proceeds from this go to cancer research, so selling lots is important. Not to mention the hope and support this offers to others facing their cancer battles.

Bella’s video made me cry.

  1. Jeff – may abundant blessings be upon you for putting out the word on Bella’s book – “Why NOT Me?”. As you well know, life is filled with so many unexpected events and sometimes the road we must travel can seem so dark and uncertain. However, God is always in control and we can have confidence that He will not lead us astray. Yes, we walk by Faith and not by Sight! In many ways, if we actually knew what the future sometimes holds for us, we would never be able to take it all in. Walk by FAITH. God is always in control!! Alleluia! Thanks for what you are doing to help find a cure for Pediatric Cancer.

  2. Ralph, you’re welcome. Mother teresa said, “If you can’t do great things, do small things with great Love”.

    This is one of my daily battle cries, simply, “Do what you can, (where you can, when you can).”
