How Lucky Can a Star Really Be?

We had a home show today in Everett. I like to be at the show because I get to see so many people I know. Some who have been PG clients in the past, some we are currently working with and some who may be future clients. Because I like what I do it makes it fun to tell the PG story.

This show was a little different than the ones in the past. I really have a story now and it's not about rocks.

Some of the people came by the booth specifically to ask how Grant is doing. They were surprised when they heard it from someone that this had happened. The blog is a nice place to send people to in order for them to catch up.

Grant's cardiologist was by today and asked how he was doing. She's is very nice and of course excited he is doing so well.

Honestly, he looks just like he did before the event. He acts the same, smiles the same, maybe a little more, jokes the same and he seems to be doing his school work the same as well, which is pretty good. There doesn't seem to be any ill effects from the long time w/o his own pulse.

One of the people today kept saying that Grant was "Lucky" or that he should thank his "lucky stars". How tragic to think that this could have been just chance. I am so thankful that I can have hope in the Creator and Sustainer of the universe, rather than just hoping for the stars to line up just right for me next time. People need the Lord.

God is good even in the way He helps us to remember that He is in control.

Great Post, Chuck! It is sad that people will make hope when they don't have true hope. Christ is the Cure for the lost and dieing world, bringing real, true, certain hope to His own!

Praise God for His Perfect Son!

Hi, Mr. Weinberg, from LaShani! I'm so glad God has seen you guys through this time. He is so merciful - slow to anger and great in lovingkindness, like the psalmist says - to allow Grant to continue as he was before, except more joyful and with a huge trust-building experience in his belt. Kim's and my Bible 10 class brought sickness-related requests and praises so often to Mr. Sarr. He was faithful to point out how being a little sick makes us thankful for when we have fully-functioning bodies and minds.
What can we pray for still? For those people at Priceless Granite to see God through this, rather than coincidence? Are there any practical needs or hopes, like finances or Grant's continued recovery?
