Day 51

SavedToday I attended a beautiful home going service for one of our church leaders, Rev. Carol Turner. It’s always sad when someone passes on because we know that they’re leaving behind loved ones who will miss them. Rev. Carol led by example. Not only did she teach us how to live, she taught us how to die. Rev. Carol never stopped loving the Lord and she never stopped praising the Lord. She allowed her light to shine. She taught us what it truly means to praise the Lord in good times and in bad times. Bishop David G. Evans preached the eulogy. His focus was on Psalm 23 – the Lord is my shepherd. Bishop also said, “A long life is not good enough. A good life is not quite enough. But a saved life is more than enough!” That was how Rev. Carol lived her life. I was blessed to witness her example. And therein lies my Joy.
