“E’en for the dead I will not bind my soul to grief;
Death cannot long divide.
For is it not as though the rose that climbed my garden wall
Has blossomed on the other side?
Death does hide,
But not divide;
You are but on Christ’s other side!
You art with Christ, and Christ with me;
In Christ united still are we.”
-Streams in the Desert
Today we choose to celebrate Mom. Even on this day when we mark her home going two years ago, and even with tears in our eyes, we choose to celebrate who she was and the legacy that she left. One of Mom’s favorite verses was Psalm 34:1, ” His praise will always be on my lips”, and we truly praise God for an incredible woman who lived out her calling and who lived a life full of purpose and meaning for her Master.
Thank you to so many of you who have prayed and encouraged us over the last two years. We are forever grateful.
Love and blessings,
Kurt, Olivia, Matt, Drew, Ivy, and Ellie
