Today I am going to tell you about an excellent book...
It was uplifting and very well written. I had trouble putting it down! First a little background of the story. It's a true story of Ema McKinley and the health issues she suffered with after a severe work related accident. I enjoyed the fact that while she was honest about her anger and frustration, she did not dwell on the part of the story where she had problems with insurance companies and the medical community. It could easily have become a "woe is me" and a Me against Them kind of dark book, but it wasn't. It was a truly inspiring story on how God allows us to feel angry and hurt and confused, and to even ask him "why" and still feel His Love and His Comfort in all situations.
There is a wonderful section in the middle full of pictures of Ema before her accident, and after her miraculous healing. Ema never portrayed herself as a saint, or a "special" child of God, just as a woman dealing daily with pain. And through it all, she kept her faith in God, and her joy.
"The Joy of the Lord is our strength."
I won't tell you much about her healing, so you can enjoy the miracle yourself. But I will tell you this, this is a story you will want to re-read, and to share.
