Recently, I was walking through the hospital where Gordon spent his first few weeks post-stroke. As I walked through those familiar halls, I noticed that the hospital’s gift shops offered many books for sale, none of which dealt with recovery, hope, or encouragement. I was shocked!
Gordon and I immediately decided to pursue getting “Painful Blessing” into a hospital gift shop. After all, we cannot be the only people who need encouraging words and hope to get through those awful, early days.
As of this week, “Painful Blessing” is available in the gift shop at OHSU! I pray copies of the book get into the hands of people who need it, whoever they may be. I pray that they will be encouraged to face their challenges and to hope for the blessings that God has for them.
