I WAS JUST SITTING HERE LOOKING AT THE EVENING NEWS AND I JUST HEARD THAT REV. BILLY GRAHAMS WIFE, RUTH HAS SLIPPED INTO A COMA AFTER A BRIEF ILLINESS, DOCTORS SAY SHE IS IN HER FINAL HOURS. I LIVE IN CHARLOTTE NC, AND ABOUT TWO WEEKS AGO BILLY GRAHAM WAS HERE FOR HIS LIBRARY DEDICATION. ANYWAY I JUST LEARNED THAT RUTH GRAHAM WAS AN AUTHOR AND POET AND THE NEWS REPORTER QUOTED A STATEMENT FROM ONE OF HER BOOKS-"THOSE WHO ABANDON SHIP THE FIRST TIME IT WEATHERS A STORM MISSES THE CALM BEYOND." THIS STATEMENT REALLY TOUCHED ME BECAUSE I DECIDED TO STAY AND WEATHER THE STORM WITH MY HUSBAND. I STRUGGLE EVERYDAY WITH MY DECISION AND I HAVE BEEN TOLD BY SOME VERY WISE PEOPLE THAT IF WE GET THRU THIS WE WILL COME OUT MUCH STRONGER ON THE OTHER SIDE. I JUST WANTED TO SHARE THIS WITH THOSE WHO CHOSE TO STAY AND WHOSE SPOUSES ARE SINCERELY SORRY AND TRYING TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT. THIS HAS GIVEN ME A NEW OUT LOOK AND HOPE FOR OUR FUTURE. I HOPE THIS HELPS. I LOVE YOU ALL.
