Humble yourselves, therefore, under the mighty hand of God so that at the proper time he may exalt you, casting all your anxieties on him, because he cares for you. 1 Peter 5:6-7
When the set was first released in October 2010, Randi was quoted as saying,
"This set is so meaningful to me. My first cancer was 26 years ago and the song that always bubbled up from my heart is this song." (The song Randi is referring to is "Great is Thy Faithfulness".) " Here I am again....same cancer same song.....there are no mistakes in God's handiwork. I get blessed just thinking about it. Sorry guys but I am claiming these stamps as ones sent from heaven just for me."You can read the full post here . On the second anniversary of the release, it was the feature of Angie Crockett's Flashback Friday post.
So many of us have memorized the 1 Peter 5 scripture, but how many of us only focus on the last portion and not the first? The line forms behind me! Randi, however, didn't just quote this scripture, she lived it. . .all of it! When Randi's cancer returned in 2010 and she prepared for surgery, she was quoted as saying,
"I told my pastor that I just don't know where to go in my mind yet. Am I preparing for meeting Jesus or preparing to teach a bible study. We decided until we know something I need to prepare to teach....and continue living. I may not know what the future is for me BUT I do know that I am determined to serve my Savior with all my heart."Humble, gracious, beloved: Randi will be greatly missed. Please keep her family and friends in prayer as they mourn the loss of their dear loved one, though they rejoice knowing that she is with the Lord and full of joy, peace, love and thankfulness! We know that she is singing with all she has, "Great is thy faithfulness, mercy and love!"
