"Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; his love endures forever." Psalm 118:29
We got to speak with Tammy's donor again today. It was the first time I had been able to speak to him. He is a breath of fresh air. I thanked him for saving Tammy's life, and he just chuckled.
I just sent the blog address to Jim and his wife, so they could learn about what a special person Tammy is. Here's what I wrote about "my hero."
"Tammy is a very precious jewel in our family. She is known by everyone as 'Sweet Tammy.' And unlike some nicknames that are spoofs of real characteristics, like calling a bald guy 'Curly,' this one fits. Everything she does is done with a sensational sweetness and generosity. The love of God shines through her and touches everyone with whom she comes in contact. By being willing to agree to God's nudging, Jim allowed that to continue."
Jim gave us permission to share his contact information. We won't post it here, but if you want to send him a thank you, contact me at DavidDSmale@gmail.com and I'll send it to you.
We are so thankful to Jim for his willingness to listen to God's leading to go through the testing process. We can all learn from Jim. Sometimes God will nudge us to do something we might not think of doing on our own. Be open to His leading.
By the way, Jim is a big Giants fan. So if you don't have a team to root for in the Super Bowl next weekend, join us is saying, "Go GIANTS!"
