- Well, unfortunately my step mother passed away a few days and I did travel to West Florida to visit my family for support and encouragement during a tough time. Thank you for all your prayers during this time.
- Larry, to my knowledge, is feeling better physically as well though so often he has different illnesses and pains he is fighting on a constant basis. Continue to keep him in prayer.
I have been reading “Crazy Love” by Francis Chan the last few days and I highly recommend it to anybody to read. It actually really targets the problem of living a ‘lukewarm life’. In it, Francis quotes a twelve-year old who died in a car accident at only fourteen years old. Her name was Brooke Bronkowski and I’d like to share a quote from her about living life to the fullest.
“Since I Have My Life Before Me”
I’ll live my life to the fullest. I’ll be happy. I’ll brighten up. I will be more joyful than I have ever been. I will be kind to others. I will loosen up. I will tell others about Christ. I will go on adventures and change the world. I will be bold and not change who I really am. I will have no troubles but instead help others with their troubles.
You see, I’ll be one of those people who live to be history makers at a young age. Oh, I’ll have moments, good and bad, but I will wipe away the bad and only remember the good. In fact that’s all I remember, just good moments, nothing in between, just living my life to the fullest. I’ll be one of those people who go somewhere with a mission, an awesome plan, a world-changing plan, and nothing will hold me back. I’ll set an example for others, I will pray for direction.
I have my life before me. I will give others the joy I have and God will give me more joy. I will do everything God tells me to do. I will follow the footsteps of God. I will do my best.
That was written by a 12-year old. Love it.
