"All combined together we make one really cool person.
Separately, not so much." -Bob Goff
Once again, our community has gathered around a grieving family. Once again, it is really cool to watch how "real" community works. Some cook, some bake, some pray, some visit, some cry, some laugh, some plan, some choose verses, some choose hymns, some contact priests, some write obituaries, some encourage, some teach, some plan a birthday party, some make calls, some plan to pick up pieces in Boy Scouts, some run errands, some answer phones...
"We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully." Romans 12:5-8
No matter what it is....everyone using their individual gifts, in different areas.... to hold up a family.... to honor a life... to make it easier, in even the smallest way possible.
To Glorify God for a life well lived and battle fought hard.
God, Thank You for the faithful examples we are surrounded with.
