When Bryan Herrington died sixteen years ago, his donated organs saved the lives of four people. One of them was Jeffrey Granger, who received Bryan’s kidney and pancreas. He and Bryan’s wife, Terri, became friends over the years.
Bryan’s kidney in Jeffrey failed last year. Terri immediately volunteered to donate her own kidney, which is now implanted in Jeffrey. The surgeon who operated on Terri said that it’s common for donated kidneys that fail to remain in transplant patients even after new ones are in place.
As a result, Terri’s kidney is sitting next to the kidney donated by her late husband. Terri says, “We are back together.”
“She was a scientist, humanitarian, wife, mother, and trailblazer”
Character brings consequences.
Last Friday, I sent this tweet: “Great news: NASA to name DC headquarters after ‘Hidden Figure’ Mary W. Jackson, their first African American female engineer.”
Jackson began her career in the segregated unit of the agency’s Langley Research Center, where she became known as one of the “human computers.” Hers was one of the stories featured in Hidden Figures: The American Dream and the Untold Story of the Black Women Mathematicians Who Helped Win the Space Race. The book became a popular movie I highly recommend.
In 2019, Jackson was posthumously awarded the Congressional Gold Medal.
Her daughter said of NASA’s decision, “We are honored that NASA continues to celebrate the legacy of our mother and grandmother Mary W. Jackson. She was a scientist, humanitarian, wife, mother, and trailblazer who paved the way for thousands of others to succeed, not only at NASA, but throughout this nation.”
By contrast, yesterday was the anniversary of the murder of Austro-Hungarian Archduke Franz Ferdinand by a Serbian assassin in 1914. In response, the Austria-Hungarian Empire declared war…
WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
If you are not a Christian, and would like to become a Christian. Simply say - "LORD Jesus, thank you for forgiving me of my SINs, today I am deciding to follow you. Accept me into your family, in Jesus name I pray. Amen "
