If you read the post, I Am the Rock, you may have read the precious comment from my new friend, Elizabeth.
I’ve not had the pleasure of meeting Elizabeth yet. I hope to see her this week. I want to meet the lady behind such courage. I want to meet the lady with a heart so full of love for her Savior that she leans not on her own understanding, but on THE WORD. I want to talk with my sister who shares in the experience of how REAL He is. I am anxious to hug the neck of a woman who admits her doubts in the same breath that she acknowledges how HUGE He is.
After reading Elizabeth’s comments, I also learned that the man who led my sweet daddy to Christ passed away yesterday. A man who knew how HUGE God is. A man who knew exactly what Jesus has done for us-the sorriest of sinners, and explained it beautifully to my daddy 37 years ago.
As I thought about Elizabeth’s courage to face terminal bile duct cancer, I imagined her putting on the full armor of Christ to prepare for battle. I then realized that Robert now sits in the presence of TRUTH, He is held in the bosom of RIGHTEOUSNESS and and that he likely left his GOSPEL shoes at the pearly gates. Robert has lain down his shield since his faith is now personified and he is no longer dodging those fiery darts. Robert speaks with his SALVATION who is THE WORD OF GOD. I even imagine that the armor he has laid down is the same that Elizabeth now picks up. For everything there is a season.
I’ve reached out to Elizabeth in a private email and learned that there will be a shop-a-thon hosted by friends and family this weekend to benefit her family. She owns a consignment store here in Fairhope and it is her desire to have Abigail’s Closet thrive now and in her absense. Here is more about Abigail’s from her website:
Throughout the children’s lives, the family consigned clothing online and Elizabeth operated Abigail’s Closet online for years.
Seeing an opportunity in the trendy upscale market, Elizabeth opened Abigail’s Closet in December of 2012, and the rest is history!
We are located right in the heart of scenic Fairhope, Alabama on Church St. Our store hours are 10-5, Monday through Saturday.
Somewhere on the Gulf Coast today, Elizabeth is beginning her chemotherapy. Somewhere on the Gulf Coast today someone is hearing how HUGE her God is. Please lift her in your prayers. Please support this family and stop in this weekend for the shop-a-thon.
