the good news


You have to look very close ........

"No diabeteis in heavon!"


This is a photo of our church bulletin; found recently in Ellie's Sunday School backpack.  

Why there is a 'bite' out of the side is beyond me.  Maybe she was a little 'low' and needed a small snack?

During a sermon a couple of weeks ago, a guest pastor was speaking about the Kingdom of Heaven and how there is no pain, no sorrow and no cancer in Heaven. 

I leaned over to Ellie and whispered; "Guess what else won't be in Heaven!"  She smirked at me and went back to doodling in her sketch book.

When she wrote this on the bulletin I have no idea, but I just HAD to share the good news.

For some reason it makes me sad too. I guess it is because that they will have to most likely wait that long.

this isn't good news ----------it's great.

and what's even better than this news? that your baby girl GETS it.

Yeah, it's sad that she has to live with it - but she is already realizing that she can bring Glory to God through diabetes. Oh, I pray her voice just keeps getting stronger & stronger!!!!
