A Matter of Life & Death: LOVE

As I celebrated my 27th birthday with my family members God reminded me that he is in control. My Mom told me about a family friend that passed away & I began to cry. I remembered how beautiful Mrs. Calloway's spirit was and how much in love she was with her husband.

The women in my church would always tell me how great I could be if I just focused on myself & my love for God. Mrs. Calloway was a woman of God that did just that. God made sure that this trip home not only meant celebration, but remembrance of what I should strive to be.  I reached out to Mrs. Calloway's husband and shared a few words with him. I explained to him how I admired their love for each other & their love for God.

He explained to me that my generation lacks the knowledge of what true love is and that it starts with our faith in God. He is a wonderful man that loved his wife dearly and they both shared an amazing love for God. I find solace in knowing that Mrs. Calloway is sitting next to my Grandmother in heaven discussing how proud they are of the woman I continue to strive to be EVERYDAY... I am far from PERFECT but I know who I am!

"GOD BLESS THE DEAD AND THE LIVING!"
