Wings As Eagles: An encouraging thought!

An encouraging thought!

I have a quick thought to share with you as it is such an encouragement to me. Tonight our memory verse for the kids at kids club at church was II Timothy 4:7..."I have fought the fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith".

That always refreshes me and challenges me to think and do those things that are eternal instead of focusing on the temporary things that really don't matter. Can I say like Paul at the end of my life, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith?

A year ago at this time, we were debating what Scripture verse to put on Mom's headstone and decided on this one. So while it also is encouraging to me, it also brings back memories of Mom. But it couldn't have been a better description of Mom and the life she lived.

One thing I recall Dad saying so clearly after Mom died was, "God put her on earth to do what He wanted her to do and she has accomplished it. She finished the race. She ministered, encouraged, helped those to whom He desired her to and now she has her reward. She, like Paul, finished the course. She kept the faith."

What a wonderful future we have to look forward to! :)


  1. Not to mentioned she produced three of the most godly young ladies I know. What a testimony. I'm so blessed to be you girls' friend, and your mom played such a huge part in that.

  2. Thanks!! Only by God's grace are we what we are. And we enjoy your friendship so much as well!!


I'd love to hear your thoughts! :)
