KellyGram – Johnny’s Miracle

 

 

I am blessed to have made many friends in my lifetime, but few are as close to me as my dear pal Johnny Etheridge. Johnny is a fellow attorney who has practiced with the Gardner Law Firm in the Pee Dee for years and years. We have known each other for quite a long time and, having both been blessed—and cursed—with many common personality traits, we have a unique understanding of one another. We help each other through life’s ups and downs, and in many respects, Johnny is as much a brother to me as a friend.

Recently, Johnny was informed that he needed major eye surgery as a result of elevated pressure in his eye. He availed himself of every conservative measure to avoid surgery, knowing that there were serious risks associated with the procedure. But when those treatments did not relieve his symptoms, Johnny had little choice but to go through with the operation. So two weeks ago, my dear friend traveled to Duke for his scheduled surgery, preparing for the worst and hoping for the best. He went in for his pre-operative visit the morning before the procedure, but when the technician checked his pressures, they were within normal limits. In disbelief, the technician called for the surgeon, who performed the tests a second time. The results were the same: the pressure in Johnny’s eye had subsided. The surgeon, too, was astonished—Johnny no longer needed surgery, and his recovery was nothing short of a miracle.

Before that fateful pre-operative appointment, all of Johnny’s friends, family, employees, and supporters—myself included—prayed for a successful operation and Johnny’s speedy recovery. But we underestimated the grace of God! He blessed Johnny with an even better outcome—one that no one thought possible. He worked a true miracle. I, for one, broke down in tears when Johnny’s wife, Pam, called to give me the good news. Johnny Etheridge is a good man who has dedicated much of his life to helping others; he has touched countless lives and is loved by many. This was a blessing bestowed upon a very deserving follower of Christ, and it was a reminder to all that we must never lose faith.


We love you, Johnny, and we thank you for sharing your miracle! God is good!

Have a blessed weekend!
