The Todd for whom we Prayed

“Our days on earth are like grass; like wildflowers, we bloom and die.  The wind blows, and we are gone—as though we had never been here.  But the love of the Lord remains forever with those who fear him. His salvation extends to the children’s children.” 
Psalm 103:15-17

A few weeks ago, I wrote about the joyous news of Kate McRae’s present progress in her battle with cancer. And we continue to pray she will remain cancer-free, so every day of her life will glorify the Lord. 

Well, another precious one we’ve been praying for is cancer-free too, except his pathway to healing was a little different.  Todd passed away Saturday night and is now present with the Lord. His life and faith truly brought glory to the Lord, and his faith has become sight!

If you’ve been praying for Todd, or want to know more about someone who demonstrated joy in sorrow, hope through despair, and unfailing love in His God and Saviour, even when obstacles became bigger than life–then please go to Beth’s Blog, HERE.  

Please remember to keep Todd’s family, his wife and two children, parents, and many dear friends, in prayer as they face the future without him, but never without our loving Lord.  Thank you!

In honour of Todd, here is an encouraging excerpt from The Pilgrim’s Progress, as Christian enters the Celestial City:

The Shining Ones answered, “You must receive the comforts of all your toil and have joy for all your sorrow; you must reap what you have sown, even the fruit of all your prayers, tears, and sufferings in your journey for the King….”

“These are the men who have loved our Lord when they were in the world and who have left all for His holy name….”

O by what tongue or pen can their glorious joy be expressed!!

  1. Hello Linda,
    I have not been able to visit many of my blog friends this past month, but I keep you close in my heart. I just quickly read the latest you have written and was saddened yet also rejoicing to read of Todd’s homegoing.

    I will visit Beth’s blog after this.

    THanks for sharing. Your blog is full of love and compassion, such a delightful place to be in.

    Hope all is well with you.

    Love
    Lidj

    • Hello Lidj,
      You’re such a blessing! I’m so thankful to have you as a ‘friend’ and sister in the Lord!

      Just wondering if the books ever arrived? I mailed them about 5 weeks ago, so praying they are in your hands soon! Love, Linda
