My Glimpse of God this week comes in the person of my sister Debbie Maratea. She is my older sister and one of the best as we have grown up into adults and have come to learn and appreciate what family love is and how is abounds through and with God’s grace and heavenly touch.
My sister is recoverning from a stroke. She is unable to work and since April has had no income other than what this gofund me has contributed. She has unsucessfully sought help from every state and federal agency with no success. Shw wa told that SSI could take up to 6 months and now we are up to 4. She is receiving food stamps and her prescriptions are covered, but there is no financial assistance for her to pay teh rent and now she faces eviction. If you, or someone you know, can help her, pleaase think about doing so, and if you have aolready, thank you.
Debbie was told by the doctor that she cannot work. I have set up a go-fund me page to ask for help from whoever feels called to contribute. Her page is: gofundme.com/debbie-medical-stroke-bills
iF YOU ARE NOT COMFORTABLE CONTRIBUTING TO THE GOFUNDME ACCOUNT, BUT WOULD LIKE TO MAKE A CONTRIBUTION TO HELP HER, PLEASE FEEL FREE TO SEND IT TO ME, DR. COOKIE MAGEE, 14 CELLA DRIVE, ASTON, PA 19014 AND I WILL FORWARD TO HER IMMEDIATELY. THANK YOU FOR YOUR THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS
So as we begin a new week, and for some a new normal, I would suggest that you think about how illness, stroke, cancer, heart attacks can occur at any time and that you should not only appreciate the gift of the loved ones in your life, but also the gift of your body and listen to it, because it is talking to you. You know when your body is speaking a different language, one that is unfamiliar and perhaps scary, but the body is trying to tell you something and you need to pay greater attention and listen, only you know your body and its unique language. We need to be here for each other and support each other in the good and challenging times, the scary and the consoling time. God did not create us to be on an island, alone and afraid, but placed us in His creation around those we call family, friends, neighbors, coworkers and church to pray for, lift up and encourage each other on the journey.
