Lupus is an auto immune, connective tissue disease, to which there is no cure. It renders the immune system incapable of differentiating between good and bad pathogens. It causes the immune system to attack the hosts body, causing inflammation and breakdown of tissues, eventually causing multiple organ failure and death. Finding herself in this situation, Kays choice was to either seek Gods face or turn away. Being constantly reminded of Gods sovereignty through the many mercies and grace that she had received during the illness, she chose to have a close relationship with God, abiding in him daily. She finds comfort, and relief in knowing that God has providence over her life, and nothing touches her without first going through Him. She prays that as you read these poems you may be encouraged to seek an abiding relationship with the Lord.

About the author

Kay Elizabeth Grant Lawrence was born on August 7, 1970, in Montego Bay, Jamaica. She is the wife of retired Marine James Lawrence, and the mother of two children. After receiving her BS in Jamaica she completed a MEd in Curriculum and Instruction. Her diverse educational career has allowed her to teach worldwide. In 2006 she developed a blood clot in her brain. While pondering what she thought was a “tragedy”, she found solace in serving the elderly and homeless in her local church ministry. It was also in this period of seeking answers, that her deep intimacy with Christ, and sense of purpose to service were developed. Kay knew God had given her a new path, not to serve classrooms, but a passion to channel the hurt that she was feeling. Kay decided to become a Chaplain, she wanted to minister to the sick, and care for those who shared her sorrow in the journey of chronic illnesses, like Systemic Lupus. God introduced her to Clinical Pastoral Education. She took several semesters of CPE at Florida Hospital Tampa. Kay’s greatest fulfi llment comes from visiting and interacting with her patients. She ministers through reading her poetry, prayer and singing for those who need her special touch.
