Suffering is the prelude to grace

“No Crippled Girls in Heaven”  Lanita Eversole  A touching, heartbreaking home recording of little Lanita of Winchester, KY, who writes on the back cover “It is a privilege to try to bless you by singing just for you.  I’ve been through a lot of pain and sorrow all my life, but the Lord has always been with me.  I’ve been through about 13 major operations and I’ve been wearing braces on my legs about all of my life and like the song i sing … “There Won’t Be No Crippled Girls in Heaven,” and when I get to Heaven, I won’t have to worry anymore about pain or sorrows and Oh How I Love Jesus!”
