While Tom and I were unable to join you for the Chicago Service Trip, I wanted to share with you our experience with a homeless woman. Gloria called on Christmas Eve looking for a place to stay. She had lost her job and had been living on the street for several months. She moved in with us on Christmas Day and in March was diagnosed with lung cancer. Tom and I ask your prayers for Gloria (actually all three of us) as we face whatever is ahead. The next CT scan is in early June and at that time we'll know what we're up against. The homeless woman quoted above is right: "The joy is in the journey." Love to all, Joan Spittler (BVM Associate)
THANKS, Joan, for sharing the experience you & Tom had. I'll be praying for you both & Gloria. Always remember our 'music' days together at Mt.Carmel. Hope you can join us next time we do something like this. Love, Nancy
BVMs and their Associates are such a blessing from above. I read all of this blog down to its beginning and was amazed at all that has been accomplished. God Bless!
