Other side of the World
Sometimes family just blows your mind…in a good way though. I have the best Brother-in-Love and Sister-in-Love….Yes, Love not Law. The “Law” part doesn’t matter to them…they love me unconditionally and are always showing me, and many countless others, God’s love and grace. They don’t just love me because I’m related to them but because that is their heart and soul.
We recently moved and Julie asked me for my new address. I told her as long as she wasn’t sending me a bill I would give it to her…we both got a good laugh. A few days later a packet arrived in the mail. I opened it up… started reading… then started crying. I was blown away….Wow…just WOW!
In Memory and Honor of Lauren they had purchased the construction of a water well to be built in Uganda, Africa. It will be built in a village of over 2400 people and supply them with safe, clean drinking water. A plaque will be added with her name and a specially picked scripture.
“For we do not grieve as those who have no hope…”
1 Thessalonians 4:13
Hope is what we have, as children of God, that one day we will see Lauren again and meet our Heavenly Father, when we leave this earthly life.
I know without a shadow of a doubt that Lauren would be proud, thrilled and probably giddy too… to have her name on a life giving water well around the world….And to play a part in helping people, of all ages, have a much better quality of life.
.Thank You Julie and Todd for honoring Lauren’s life in such a special way!! You are “the hands and feet of Christ” to us and so many! We love you both to infinity!!
