Abby and Britty Hensel Conjoined Twins: All Things Are Possible

Almost two months ago, March 7, 2009, conjoined twins Abigail "Abby" Loraine Hensel and Brittany "Britty" Lee Hensel turned 19. As I was reading about their biography, I was amazed to read about their unique condition and how they have both survived to this day - truly a living miracle and testimony that all things are possible.

As I think about the survival of Abby and Britty Hensel and their condition as conjoined twins I am reminded about my message last Sunday in our youth service. I talked about how nothing is impossible in this world especially through Christ (Philippians 4:13). I talked about how difficult circumstances in our lives do not necessarily have to dictate the outcome of our lives.

And this is truly the case for the twins. According to Wikipedia, "there is some concern about their ability to have continued good health because only four known sets of conjoined twins who share an undivided torso and two legs have ever survived into adulthood, and most have congenital heart defects or other organ anomalies." But miraculously, nothing have shown up in the case of conjoined twins Abigail "Abby" Loraine Hensel and Brittany "Britty" Lee Hensel. They truly are living proof that all things are possible.

Abby and Britany are beautiful inside and out-and all of you others that use your filthy talk are weirdos!
