What Would Janie Do?

I'm sure that when our friend Kim Winters innocently asked Janie to write a post about God and having cancer, neither of them could have foreseen the far-reaching effects that post, called, "The New Normal," would have. We gave it out at Janie's memorial service, and many people have said they've made copies and handed it out to friends and co-workers. Thanks to the World-Wide-Computer-Net-Inter-Web, people all over the U.S. and even beyond have been blessed by Janie's simple essay.

Yesterday, I received

an envelope in the mail with a magazine called Vibrant Life inside, with an attached note that said something like, "I thought you'd like this magazine, especially page 30. - Celeste"  Confused, I flipped to page 30 and there was the article's title: What Would Janie Do? "Wow," I thought to myself, "that's a funny twist on the famous What Would Jesus Do? phenomenon. How funny that they chose the name Janie...." I went on to look at the article's author, and was delighted to see that it was written by Celeste Walker, the mom of one of Carly's schoolmates. I instantly realized that the name Janie in the title was no coincidence - the article was referring to my very own Janie!

Please take a minute and peruse the delightful article (click the picture)...and be blessed all over again by Janie. Celeste, thank you so much!
