Strength, Faith and Integrity

These are some of the qualities we were raised to have. I have heard of some things lately that people I know are doing that are just wrong and shocking. Then again, I see people like my sister and brother-in-law go through some very trying times lately and think "My Gracious! That is Strength, Faith and Integrity. They have had a few things happen but the only one I will talk about is a life-threatening issue with their middle child. She started complaining about her heart beating out of her chest. After a few complaints my sister took her to the doctor. They monitored her for a while and couldn't catch these episodes until one day an episode lasted 30 minutes, long enough to get her to the hospital. She has an irregularity in her heart that is misfiring causing tachycardia. She had to have a heart procedure as a 6 year old that most 50 year olds have to have with heart disease. Anyways, my sister drew strength from God during this whole thing keeping everyone else calm. I would have been a basket case. She was the strong mother. I have seen uncontrollable circumstances thrown their way and their Faith in God and the Integrity that they have when dealing with these trails is honorable to God, and although it is tough now, God is going bless them beyond measure because of the way they handle themselves, whether it's here on earth or in heaven after they are gone. And that is all for now. :)
