“To live in the hearts of those we leave behind is not to die.”
Today we are celebrating the life of my brother-in-law, Stan. He gave us many reasons to smile. He will live on in the hearts of all who knew him.
If you could write your obituary, celebrating your life, what would you want folks to say about you?
Here lies __________________ (insert your name) S/He was __________________ (insert an adjective) We could count on him/her to ____________________ (what could folks count on you for?) His/Her life was noted for ________________________ (what’s your legacy?)
Have you discovered how to discern His Will? Are you asking God each day to help you do His Will?
How are you using your time today? Time is our greatest gift. Use it wisely!
I am praying that you have a Marvelous Monday!
Hugs to you. See you tomorrow (God willing)… JanBeek
My friend, Sue, shared with me this morning the page below from a Hallmark gift book of collected saying, quotes, short stories, titled Wit & Wisdom of Women.
Today is the day my friend, Carol,
(I wrote about her earlier in My Friend, Carol)
made her journey over the “Rainbow Bridge”
to her Eternal Home.
When Sue read this page to me, I told her, “That perfectly describes my friend, Carol. Her 95 years on this earth were a testimony to kindness, strength, courage, wisdom and wit,
as well as her impact on others, and her ability to connect in very profound ways.”
Rest in Peace, dear Carol. You certainly brought a “special touch
that no other person has.”
You will be missed here on earth,
but your legacy will live on
in each of us who had the privilege of
knowing and loving you.
My prayers and condolences go out to your family.
They were certainly blessed to have you as their mother/grandmother!
