LIfe Is Simply Amazing!

Sunday, August 14, 2011

Last night, I attended a Celebration of Life for a young woman (36) who attended our church, who passed away from cancer last month. She had been battling cancer for 8 years, yet every time I saw her, she wore a big smile on her face. She displayed the light and love of God. She never complained, and always lived her life to the fullest. At the end of the service, people released butterflies and it was so uplifting and inspirational. I know she would not want us to mourn, or waste one minute of the precious gift of life we have been given.

Thank you Lisa for being an angel on Earth, and I thank God that you are not hurting anymore. I will live each day remembering your anagram, "Life Is Simply Amazing"!

    Wow. Inspired. (Where do you get butterflies to release? Did someone have to go out and catch them all first?) What church do you go to in Austin? I know several there.

    It is obvious this young woman was a true blessing that God shared with us, albeit too short of a time.

    How sad for those who remain, to live without her, but a joy at the same time to look forward to seeing her again!
