When the nights got long, and the pain and anxiety was too much, she would have a very tangible way to know that Jesus was in her midst and she could cling to him. Freddie didn’t know that this little lamb would become such an amazing testimony of the real Jesus, or how much it would help Mary get through the hardest fight of her life.
Everywhere that Mary went, the lamb went with her. To tests, x-rays, cat scans, chemo; that lamb was always right beside her. In fact, people began to know her by that little “Jesus lamb”, and if she ever forgot him they would ask her where Jesus was.
During one of the many stays in the hospital, a woman in the room next to Mary’s began to cry out. She cried for hours and hours. Mary instructed her own family to pray for the woman. In fact, she made them all pray. Then Mary told them to go and buy a lamb for the woman and to tell her that we loved her and so did Jesus. So, they went out and got the woman a lamb. Sure enough, after a time, the woman’s cries stopped. The next day the woman’s daughter came into Mary’s hospital room and let her know that it had been the first time she had slept in days.
It was a small miracle.
