He has recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer and was given 3-6 months to live. Although his body is ravaged with cancer, is frail and yellowed, his face radiates heaven. He appears ready to go home to the loving arms of Jesus.
“Well done, thou good and faithful servant………..”
Here is a poem that Blaise wrote for him years ago, and it still applies today.
His walk is like that of a whisper
Never loud or distracting.
Words drip softly from his mouth
As honey from a comb.
Yet in wisdom
They clap as thunder from the very throne of God.
He seeks to be nothing
Yet has an abundance for those in need.
Humility surrounds him tightly as a garment.
His gaze penetrates deep
And always anticipating servitude from himself to others.
With his heart and eyes fixed on Jesus
God’s love ripples out to those near by.
If praise is offered him
He seems transparent
So as to allow the praise offered to flow through him
Back to our Father.
….and so his pilgrimage of faith continues
Praise be to God.
