At the service, our pastor spoke of the legacy Carrie left behind. She touched the lives of many, and most significantly that of her husband, 7 children, and 7 grandchildren. Their lives reflect Carrie's testimony, her relationship with the Lord and devotion to her convictions.
It's a bittersweet time, for we rejoice that Carrie has gone on to her heavenly home, but we'll miss her friendship, kindness, and ready smile. Everyone who met her was touched in some positive way. As our pastor said, "Carrie was gold."
Gold, the eternal kind. That indeed is a legacy worth striving for, don't you think?
What legacy do you wish to leave behind?
I'm taking a break until Monday, July 28. See you soon. :)
