Because the writer isn’t a politician, preacher, or other public figure, we won’t embarrass or promote her by using her full name. We found a physician with her name in Asheboro, but we’re not certain it’s the same person. Anyway, her first name is Marion. Here are some excerpts, with bold font added by us for emphasis, and occasional Curmudgeonly interjections that look [like this]:
The older I get and the more experiences I have in life both increase my appreciation of the Bible. [Good for you, Marion!] The Bible is like God speaking to us, and He wants to share with us His wisdom about everything that is important in life.
We’re in the presence of a great mind, dear reader, so pay attention! She says:
Every day, my daughter and I read 50 verses and groups of verses that have mainly to do with the subject of healing, as she has been burdened with a congenital disease called alpha-mannosidosis which has gradually destroyed her neurological system and cannot be cured except by a miracle from God.
Wikipedia has an article on Alpha-mannosidosis. It’s an incurable genetic defect. Marion tells us:
Our studies have given us wisdom about many things. We know, for instance, that humankind has been created by God, not by accidents of evolution.
That’s wisdom indeed! She continues:
We know that God loves all of us and does not want any to be sick or to enter the next life without obtaining the free gift of salvation.
Okay. Let’s read on:
It is no wonder the Devil has worked so diligently to get the Bible out of the school system.
Yes, the Devil is a bad dude! Another excerpt:
Wouldn’t it be great if we could get the Bible back into our public schools? [Yes — oh yes!] We need God in everything we do.
Marion is so wise! Her letter ends on an inspirational note, from which we took our title:
It reminds me of what a minister in Grandville, Mich., named Duane Vander Klok once said, that the greatest day of his life was when he realized that God was smarter than he was!
A great day indeed! We never heard of Duane VanderKlok, but he’s mentioned as a pastor in Wikipedia’s List of megachurches in the United States.
So what did we learn from Marion’s letter? We’re not sure. What do you think, dear reader?
