St. Petersburg, FL
My dear, sweet neighbor, Lori, gave me a cross which says “Family” on it, along with a sympathy card after the recent death of my mom. By grace, our family has a legacy of knowing Jesus, largely because of the influence of our parents. My mom lived a life of childlike faith and acceptance of God’s plan for her. She influenced so many people for the Lord, even after she developed dementia. We rejoice that now she is with her precious Jesus and has no more pain or confusion. Still, some days are really tough for those left behind. Lori left the cross in my mailbox on just such a day. I know God used her to share this cross as a reminder that He knows and cares for me and my family. I am grateful for Lori’s generosity and sensitivity to His timing.
