Faith’s Update …

In a previous blog posting, I mentioned the fabulous and precious little girl, Faith Bittner (shown complete with a bathing suit photo in shades!), who was a patient at Dell Children’s Medical Center, and whose family was raising money for rocking chairs for the hospital.  As a quick follow-up, check out the newsletter mention shown below from the University United Methodist Church in Austin, Texas.  Isn’t Faith amazing?

Many blessings, Melody

Rocking chairs delivered to Dell

The end result?  Lots of love shared by many, and the goal of 50 chairs reached in full.


A Journal Perspective

Not long ago, University United Methodist Church in Austin, Texas where I worship, recently posted the attached article in the Church’s Quarterly Journal about Journeys of Heartche and Grace: Conversations and Life Lessons from Young People With Serious Illnesses, which I thought might be of interest to you.
