Just read this post - Praying For The Chair by Jim at A Place For The God-Hungry!

Her name was Emma Daniel Gray.

Just the other day, she passed away.

I think many of us will be surprised to find that the person who does his/her job with a servant-hearted attitude as unto the Lord, a life-time of perhaps not being recognized by those they so lovingly serve, and possibly a feeling of not ever having made a difference, are, in fact, in God's eyes, the greater movers and shakers of this world than those who think much to highly of themselves - and we of them! I know that's a long sentence, but that's just how it poured out of my heart!

Loved the story! I'm sure there are many more like it that never make the news - yet God sees them all.

Emma Gray must have been loved by all who knew her. Neat tribute to her!

Thanks for the reminder to pray for the people I clean for. Sometimes I do, but not nearly enough.

You can pray for a chair, Karin??? Oy, I am surprised... :)

Thank you so much Karin for your lovely comment the other day. I really appreciate your words. Sometimes it's difficult to things from the outside and to see that we are strong and where that strength is coming from.
