A legacy to celebrate

20 Feb

This week I had the privilege of doing the funeral for a 92-year-old Proverbs 31 woman. One after another, her children and grandchildren sung the praises of her character and love for Jesus. One told how her life reflected the 3 F’s–Family, Faith, and Food. Another spoke of how she wrote encouraging letters that arrived just when they were most needed. Still another told of how he always felt she had time to listen. One mentioned that she prayed for each of her children and grandchildren and told them she hoped to see them in heaven. Her daughter said she rejoiced in December when one of her great-grandchildren trusted Christ as Savior. After a life well lived, her children and grandchildren were rising up and calling her, “Blessed.” What a great, encouraging example!
