The Way I See It

There are many times in life when it (your life as you know it) just comes to a halt…not death…just a halt. It happened to me in 2004.

Chapter Twenty-Nine  –  The Way I See It

Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends.  (John 15:13)

The way I see it, this doesn’t mean that you trade places with the guy tied to a railway track with an oncoming locomotive barreling down on him¾ or with Jesus on the cross.

In 2004, I worked three days a week at the Canadian Bible Society book store. It was a part-time job that I loved, and had done for close to five years after my forced retirement from the Mustard Seed Gift Shop. It was a perfect match for my spiritual beliefs, retail background, and love of books.

Volunteering at Providence Health Care Centre every Tuesday morning was another activity I loved.

Lunch or coffee with friends or family was also a weekly occurrence. At church, I was a member of the Worship Committee, and sang in the choir.

That life gradually changed when Jerry was diagnosed with Parkinson’s Disease…..

“….whoever loses his life for my sake will find it.” (Matthew 10:39)
