Ohio Winter Blues

About a month or so ago, I was visiting a man by the name of E.J. Franks in the hospital. Medically, things were very uncertain for E.J., and it could have gone either way. It was a hard time for him and for his wife Barb.

E.J. told me then about a piece of music he had written called, "Ohio Winter Blues." He said he wanted to play it for me on his guitar when he recovered. Together, E.J. and Barb and I prayed that he would in fact be able to play it for me one day.

E.J. and Barb just stopped by the office. E.J. played the song. It was beautiful. Not just because of the quality of the song and the playing, but because it represented an answer to prayer!

Thank the Lord for how He responds to the prayers of His servants!
