A Journey of Faith

The Let's Talk column on "Fate or Faith" in the June 2011 issue of the GLEANER came at just the right time. We have lost our sister-in-law Nancy Cross to brain cancer, and we take courage from your reminder that "beyond our immediate understanding, God is on His way." She battled glioblastoma for 10 months. We laid her to rest this past Sunday, and are grateful for the "promise of faith." Thank you for your poignant reflections.

The GLEANER article entitled "Tech-NO" (Let's Talk, July 2011) brought a smile to my face.

[As children] my sister and I were such voracious readers, we would rather read than eat or communicate with our family members. And where do you think we learned this "non-communicative" behavior? From our mother, of course, who took every opportunity to read both silently to herself and aloud to us. Her example of using the "technology" available to her for teaching moments with her children is not lost on us.
