Jesus said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.”
Today I got an e-card for The Other Katie Ferguson. I was hoping for something great, a sappy romantic message, or some hilarious family reference, or something equally humorous to share here. Instead, I got a message that thanked Katie for her thoughtful card, said that though Johns Hopkins had confirmed the tumors were not malignant, the sender was still doing therapy frequently and was not driving. Then it asked about The Other Katie’s Christmas plans (I won’t be in Birmingham or Utah, but thanks for asking). After reading it I ended up feeling a bit like a schmuck and instead of replying with my intended response — “Sorry, Katie Ferguson passed away two days ago, hadn’t you heard?” — I just sent my stock “Wrong Katie” response.
