Far Outweighs

In case you missed it this morning, I tell the story of Minnie who has MS but didn’t let that stop her from sharing the love of Christ!

The True Man

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worth comparing with the glory that is to be revealed to us.
Romans 8:18

I first met Minnie in September of 1997. She was a resident at what used to be called a “nursing home” but today they are known better as “extended care facilities.”

Minnie had lived in that home for over fifteen years when I first met her.

During the day she was confined to a wheel chair. She had multiple sclerosis, initially diagnosed in her late 50’s.

I visited Minnie regularly, sat with her, read scripture to her, and gave her the Sacrament of Holy Communion.

Minnie was always cheerful and talkative. She made every effort to be prim and proper in her dress and comportment.

But as I soon discovered, Minnie was constantly in moderate to severe chronic pain due to her MS.
