It's been two years (yesterday) that Sara went to be with JESUS. I still think of her often. I have never met Sara.... only through reading her blog. I have *met* some incredible people through this screen. Some may think that is not REAL people but ... to me.... they are SO REAL.
Sara/Gitzengirl spent the last YEARS in her condo can could not leave her home..... but she Chose JOY and poured into others.... through her screen! I am so thankful her words touched my life... for she touched my life as she did so many....
You can hop over to CHOOSE JOY and read a little....
Fifteen years ago today my grandmother went to be with Jesus. She was such an amazing person. Her husband died when she was 37 (1937). She had 7 living children and the youngest was 2. The fifth born was my Dad. She was such a testimony to me... one of the first people that made me think about Jesus. She was 98 when she went to be with Jesus. I live in the town she lived in.... I think of her often! Lysa and I went by the cemetery the other night and the sun was setting... it was such a nice quiet time of remembering.
We will never pass this way again..... lately, life has been heavy but I must Choose Joy and I must give thanks.. for that changes the way I see.... it makes life lighter.... and I can see GOD.
Choose JOY today..... give thanks.
