Not So Far Away (Faith, Hope and Love)
(A Message from my webmaster Gary Gideon)

Hello everyone:

My heart is filled with Faith, Hope, and Love for Kodi Sherman. This little girl, at the age of 10, had everything going for her. Born into a loving family, Kodi had a wonderful loving mother (Jackie) who was raising her up to truly know Jesus Christ as her personal Lord & Savior. Jackie was a hard worker and provided for Kodi's every need. Jackie was blessed with a nice home in St. Petersberg, Florida, which she rented to put a roof over Kodi and Kodi's two siblings. Kodi had dreams to someday become a Lawyer. Kodi had a bright loving future ahead of her, blessed with a mother who was one of the kindness people you could ever hope to meet. Jackie did a lot for the homeless when she was alive. She would go to the local grocery stores and get items and pass them out. She opened her home with no fear to anyone who needed a place to rest. She followed Christ's example when it came to feeding the hungry and taking them in.

On July 17, 2006, Kodi's life has been forever changed. With her mother swiftly taken away from her and Kodi suffering a broken Pelvis, clavicle, right femur and severe brain shearing, Kodi must now rely on prayers and love to determine her future. Thankfully, her Aunt Mryna, who is living on disability, has basically given up her own life and devoted it entirely to the loving care of Kodi. Myrna Sherman is a small woman with disabilities of her own. She is on limited income and unable to work. Caring for Kodi is a full time job and her needs will always exceed any disability benefits received by Myrna and Kodi. Kodi is a loving child, in need of special equipment and therapy treatments, above & beyond any benefits that disability will ever provide. As Kodi gets older, grows, and matures into a full grown woman, her Aunt Myrna will desperately need help caring for her. Depending on God's ultimate plan, Kodi's healing might take years and years, or Kodi might be dependant on others for the rest of her life. Her Aunt Myrna must rely on Prayers and love offerings, to plan for Kodi's future.

It is my belief, God expects His children, followers of Jesus Christ, to truly step up to the plate and help care for Kodi. All that we have in this life, is provided by God Himself. God blesses each & every one of us when we seek to do His will and share His Love with others. Kodi is no exception. I ask each and every one of you, to simply search your heart, and if you are not currently giving back to God, His portion of whatever He has Blessed you with in your life, please consider making a monthly pledge to help care for Kodi. Allow God to use you and bless you even more.

Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren. But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him? My little children, let us not love in word, neither in tongue; but in deed and in truth. And hereby we know that we are of the truth, and shall assure our hearts before him. 1 John 3:16-19

The Word of Jesus Christ is True
Jesus Said.........

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again. - Luke 6:38 King James Version

Give to others, and God will give to you. Indeed, you will receive a full measure, a generous helping, poured into your hands---all that you can hold. The measure you use for others is the one that God will use for you. - Luke 6:38 Good News Translation - 2nd Edition

Jesus also Said.........

And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. - Matthew 25:40 King James Version
