"The impression that a PRAYING MOTHER leaves upon her children is life-long." ~ D.L. Moody
Today I attended the memorial service for Kay Stinnett. Her daughter, Cara, is not only a friend of mine but more importantly my sister in Christ. Cara had the strength today of 10,000 soldiers as she shared the testimony of her mother's Christ-like example to her in her life.
'As followers of Christ, we are called to be witnesses of what Jesus has done in us and for us. To point people to Christ, we don’t need to be able to explain every theological issue or answer every question. What we must do is explain what we have witnessed in our own lives through the cross and the resurrection of the Savior.'
Everyone is guaranteed two appointments in this life, with birth and death. We've all made our first appointment but what are you doing with your time until the next scheduled appointment? We call this our 'dash', like mine is 1971-? Are we passing the hope we have in Jesus to others?
For believers, death is not the end but instead a glorious new beginning. Jesus conquered the grave and gave us victory in death. Yes, we all want to go to Heaven but it always seems too soon for those left behind and not yet called to go. May the peace of God comfort us all till we meet again on that beautiful shore.
