Last night, when I went to bed, I grabbed my phone off the charger, sensing in my spirit that a call was imminent.
At 11:14 beautiful Sara went home to be with Jesus.
I got a call from her sister just 20 minutes later.
I hung up the phone, walked into the living room and through tears told Matthew the news.
It’s funny how no matter how much you prepare for death, it’s still hard, isn’t it?
Adeline and I will be traveling to Iowa later this week for the funeral. (Details will be shared by Shannon soon on Gitz’s blog.)
Despite my grief, my heart chooses joy knowing that Sara is whole again, with both her earthly and heavenly Father.
Music has brought me comfort in these days, as it did when my Nana passed away earlier this year.
I have been listening to a lot of Shane and Shane. This song Arise reminds me so much of Sara.
And this song, In the Secret, is such a powerful reminder for me. I want to know the Lord more. I want to seek the Lord’s face like Sara did.
I have also been listening to my favorite Watermark album, Grateful People, on repeat all week. (click here to listen to it).
Sara loved music and loved to sing, before her disease stole her voice. Click here to listen to her singing some beautiful hymns.
I hope on this Sunday, you will take time in prayer and in remembrance of Sara. We will be thinking of her as we dedicate Adeline today.
Sara’s biggest desire was that her life reflect Christ.
Well done, Sara. Well done.
