In loving memory of Margaret Robble, who went to be with the Lord on July 26th, 2017.
“Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. (2 Corinthians 1:2-3 ESV)
For almost thirty years, Margaret endured health challenges caused by the autoimmune disease sarcoidosis. As her husband, I watched her fight a heroic battle. She faithfully embraced the love and comfort of God through all the ups and downs of her medical challenges, and her contagious joy and unshakable faith were an inspiration to many. The Lord blessed us with real hope and steadfast love through the years, and we were grateful to write about it in our book, Always Sick, Always Loved.
In the last few months of her life, Margaret passionately encouraged me to write a second book, which is entitled Weak and Indispensable. This book focuses on living a life of significance with a chronic illness, and I hope to have it published by the end of this year.
I pray, as you browse our website, you will find encouragement, even in the darkest of medical circumstances. Starting in March I am aiming to resume monthly blog posts, which will bring you updates on my book and words of inspiration applicable to long term medical conditions.
Also, if I can be a support to you in anyway, please don’t hesitate to contact me. It would be my joy to share with you or your local church the amazing comfort that the Lord faithfully gave us, and help you to understand how to see God’s love even in the severest of medical circumstances. Feel free to email me at the address provided on the “contact us” page.
Thanks for visiting my website, and may the Lord richly comfort and strengthen you in the days ahead.
