TO DENNETTE, WITH LOVE


The arresting medical revelation
of the silent invasion of that vicious alien
from the fatal planet of infirmity
into your well cared for body
came as the rudest shock
of your peaceful century.

In place of falling on the floor immediately
like many of us will do and
die a thousand times over
with a disappointed back to God,
you made a quality decision
to seek refuge under the shadow
of the Almighty Lord your God
who has remained the strength of your salvation.

You did not waste precious time
firing continuous queries of “why me”
in the ever present ears of your loving father.
Instead you exhibited unimaginable faith
by placing your heavy burden
in the hollow of his soothing palms
and believing his promise to you.

Your attitude that should have changed
especially with the inevitable attacks
of chemical therapeutic missiles
demonstrates more confidence than usual.
“Too blessed to be stressed”
has remained its silent announcement
despite the roller coaster of uncertainty
your health has been forced to ride on.

I am sure you do not know
that your reaction in the face of adversity
has provoked a complete reexamination
of my assumed stand with God.
Your pain has turned to gain for other women.
In place of shame you have received double portion.
This disappointment is now an appointment
to touch the lives of others in diverse situations.
God bless you for trusting the Lord with your heart.
May his grace and favor envelope you
all the days of your victorious life in Jesus name, amen!
