Sad News

Yahoo is reporting that Ruth Bell Graham, wife of evangelist Billy Graham, is in a coma and near death. Her husband and four of her children are at her bedside; the fifth is en route from the West Coast.

Mrs. Graham's books have meant a lot to me and many other women. Prodigals and Those Who Love Them is a classic that has comforted countless mothers of rebellious children. Footprints of a Pilgrim is the inspiring and colorful story of her life. Her published poetry speaks volumes, as collected in books like Sitting By My Laughing Fire and A Quiet Knowing.

Mrs. Graham and her husband have been married for nearly 64 years. I'm sure many people are keeping them and their family in prayer tonight.
