With the release of The Fringe Hours tomorrow, I have been thinking a lot about my friend Sara, who entered the arms of Jesus in September 2011. Sara was a dear friend who was always there to listen, encourage and inspire. I miss her deeply and know she would be so excited about this book.
The last chapter of The Fringe Hours is called Live Well, and Sara inspired a big chunk of that section. You see, Sara had a disease that forced her to be 100% home bound. Literally, the air outside could have killed her. But despite her circumstances, she chose joy day after day. She lived out her passions. (Listen to her singing hymns here.)
In the bible, Jesus says to love your neighbor as yourself. Sara did that. Even though she had many limitations, she took care of herself and made time for her passions.
I believe that because she did this, she loved incredibly well.
Honestly, I don't know many who loved like Sara loved. Her love and relentless friendship marked my life in ways I cannot even begin to articulate.
Today, I am sharing a bit about Sara and her choice to live with joy.
Pursuing your passions and choosing joy will impact every area of your life. If you haven't ordered your copy of The Fringe Hours: Making Time for You do so today. I know you'll be inspired.
