A dear Christian lady was close to death when her minister came to visit her. He softly asked, "Sister, are you sinking?" She looked at him in disbelief and said nothing. Again he said, "Sister, are you sinking?" She still could not believe that he would ask such a question. Summoning all her remaining strength she raised herself up a little in her bed and said, "Sinking? Sinking? Did you ever know a person to sink through a Rock?"
