Fanny Crosby blind because of doctors mistake

The baby screamed with pain as hot poultices were placed over her eyes. The so-called doctor told the baby’s parents that this treatment would cure her eye infection, but instead it caused permanent blindness! The little girl might have been a “burden” to her family if it hadn’t been for her Godly grandmother, who saw great potential in her. Her grandmother taught her to see the world through the eyes of her Creator, and after years of patient instruction, an extraordinary talent for music began to be seen in the little girl’s life. The next time you sing Rescue the Perishing, Blessed Assurance, or one of nearly 9,000 other hymns written by Fanny Crosby, rejoice that a believer obeyed the principle meaning of Christ’s command (Bill Gothard)
