Reading my Elisabeth Elliot email for one day this week, I came across this:
Yesterday as I was reading my brother Tom's book, The Achievement of C.S. Lewis, I was admiring again the scope of his knowledge, his ability to comprehend another's genius, and his wonderful command of English. By contrast my own limitations seemed severe indeed. They are of many kinds--analytical, critical, articulatory, not to mention educational. But my limitations, placing me in a different category from Tom Howard's or anyone else's, become, in the sovereignty of God, gifts. For it is with the equipment that I have been given that I am to glorify God. It is this job, not that one, that He gave me.
Now, the words are glorious enough, but she is Thomas Howard's SISTER???????
Two of my very favorite spiritual/inspirational writers are brother and sister?
That is way beyond belief. I never knew.
