Life is...An Obituary
My Gma died almost a month ago. I could share a million memories, but I'm not sure they would matter to you.
An obituary is fine but is so incomplete. Here is what I would say about my Gma.
1 Corinthians 13:13 was read at her funeral..."And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love."
My Gma lived out FAITH, HOPE, and LOVE.
And I would add JOY.
They weren't just words that she didn't put into action. She lived them out to show their purpose and their power.
Even during her last months, during a worldwide pandemic, she was teaching me.
Here's what I learned through her Actions...
1. Even when I'm confused, scared, and hurting I want to be someone others want to be around. Someone who exemplifies JOY and HOPE.
2. Even during a pandemic of fear Gma showed LOVE and FAITH. She said but also showed that LOVE drives out Fear!
There is a great song by Kari Jobe "The Blessing"
And a thousand generations
And your family and your children
And their children, and their children
In your weeping, and rejoicing
He is for you, He is for you"
I feel comforted during the weeping and thankful for the amazing blessing that has come to me, because of the FAITH, HOPE, LOVE, and JOY from previous generations.
May we continue it on to be a blessing to others.
