Showers of Blessing on a Sunny Day

On this beautiful spring day, Connie and I visited Elaine. Glad to see us, she agreed to a neighborhood stroll. Don expressed his pleasant surprise in her openness to travel outside to enjoy the spring weather. As the sunny skies and warm temps prevailed, we three took a short journey–Elaine in her power chair and our walking alongside her.

After leaving the driveway, Elaine’s neighbor traveling down the street waved from his car, turned around and parked nearby. Claude got out of his car just to say hello. It meant a great deal for him to take the time to chat a bit. After the short visit we continued our stroll through the neighborhood. People waved from their cars as we traveled down the street.

Being prompted to pray as we walked, Elaine, Connie and I agreed together for Elaine’s healing, expecting positive answers. Upon returning to the house, the three of us continued to visit together on the screened-in porch.

Later, Connie shared with Elaine about a young person who also had lived in a wheelchair for years. Elaine quickly agreed to write a letter to Connie’s contact. With Connie as the scribe, Elaine did not miss a beat in dictating a beautiful, encouraging letter to be sent to the young man. Earlier, we had opened a letter from our brother than included a picture our cousin, John, had found of Elaine as a young girl with her friends. The picture sparked a good time of reminiscing.

Reaching out to others works in multiples. Someone blesses us which inspires us to bless others. Thank, You, LORD, for a simple visit on a sunny day multiplying into showers of blessing.

Written from a brother's perspective, the manuscript shares the heartfelt story of ongoing physical and emotional pain experienced by both victim and family.
