hospital-bed 3cf29It was supposed to have been a day of dreams coming true!  But across town, Jack Autry was in a hospital, struggling to stay alive. Chrysalis and the women in her family found the perfect bridal gown in Amy Wells’ shop. One Jack might never see.  Because of his cancer, he couldn’t come to see his daughter try on her dress.  And because of medical bills, the family couldn’t buy the dress yet for him to see.

Amy, the wedding shop owner said, “God clearly spoke to me.” She told Chrysalis, “take the gown and veil right now to the hospital and wear it for your daddy.” Jack couldn’t believe how beautiful Chrysalis looked!  Three days later Jack died.

Amy’s generosity created a moment of cascading grace.  God to Amy to Chrysalis to Jack. Isn’t this how God works?  He doesn’t just love; he “lavishes us with love!” His grace “exceedingly abundant”—“indescribable!”

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever!  Amen.  Ephesians 3:20-21″
