Timber Tina True Survivor
My good friend, Tina Sheer, was on Survivor last night -- and was, unfortunately, voted off the island first.
She was obviously the most qualified contestant on her team -- found the water, started the fire, build the shelter, led them in prayer and caught the fish with her bare hands!
Nevertheless, three intimidated and insecure teammates ganged up on her and gave her the axe. It will be interesting to see how the lesser women will fare without her.
Still dealing daily with the heavy grief of losing her wonderful son, Charlie, Tina has determined to keep moving forward with her life. It's the hardest thing a person can experience -- and yet, she is walking through that dark valley with dignity, trusting God to give her strength for one day at a time.
Survivor is a game -- a "reality show." In reality, apart from "show" Tina is a True Survivor.
She may have not won a million dollars, but she won the hearts of viewers across our land.
In my book, she's a real champion.
Please pray for Tina as she will now be in the spotlight. Pray that God will provide help and comfort to her -- and that He will use her to be a blessing to others.
