"Marian, I have something to tell you," Sheila bubbled. She had bought four (buy three, get one free) Blooming books from me the week prior. Sheila had given one of the books to Phyllis, her 84-year-old neighbour who was suffering from an aortic aneurysm.
The doctors had put Phyllis through a battery of diagnostic tests and she was scheduled for an appointment with a surgeon. She had been told she would need a risky operation. Not to do the operation would mean possible rupture which would cause severe pain, as well as internal hemorrhaging which, without prompt treatment, could mean a quick death. Phyllis was scared.
Phyllis would read a couple of pieces from Blooming every night before she went to sleep. One night after reading about some of the answers to prayer in the book, she prayed, "Lord if you did it for her, you can do it for me."
Soon after that she saw the surgeon. He proclaimed her healthy and well.
