never give up hope



He traveled all night anxious to get home

He heard the familiar ring and picked up his phone

With tears in his eyes he covered his face

For it was his wife--Samantha--Samantha grace.

Her doctor had told her that she was dying

And seeing this specialist was worth trying.

So she packed up her bags and was waiting for him

But the doctor had said her prognosis was mighty grim.

When he arrived she was ready, the trip they

Would make would be fast and steady.

She climbed into the cab and they were on their way

She folded her hands and began to pray.

Dear LORD “ this can not be? “

What’s going to happen to my family?

Choked up with emotion he could not control

He asked GOD to save this beautiful soul.

A better wife and mother could not be found

She should not have to be laid in the ground.

As they drove down that dark lonely road

Thru the trees a bright light was shown.

He knew it could not be sunrise

He was shocked and surprised.

He applied his brakes and slowed down to see

But this light was a total mystery.

They stopped the truck and got out of the cab.

He looked at his wife and she had a smile on her face

“ this was his wife- this was his grace”.

There was an aura around her that he

Had never seen before, and would not see ever more.

They both dropped down to their knees

as the light got closer, and in that light they could see

An angel floating ever so gracefully.

The angel floated down and touched the top of her head

And then whispered in her ear:

Do not fret for things will get better yet.

And as quickly as he came he disappeared.

And the light whisked back up into the sky.

I looked at her and she looked fine.

We arrived at the office of the specialist

With the x rays they had given grace.

The doctor looked at them and pointed to a spot

And said the cancer had spread, but he would run

His own tests just to see, if there was something

That could give him some hope.

He took more x rays and did a cat scan

I sat there and held her hand.

We sat there and it seemed like an eternity

When he entered with a smile and said

“You’re cancer free”. I can not explain

For the tests they had taken were the best in the land

This is something I can’t understand.

We left his office with a new outlook on life

With HOPE in our hearts, the LORD

Saved my wife.

HOPE IS THE KEY TO SET OURSELVES FREE
