Evelyn

Last week a woman in my church, Evelyn, passed away. It was rather unexpected. She went in to have a stint put in her heart and while recovering had a heart attack and passed on. I didn't know Evelyn intimately. We didn't have long heart to hearts or share personal problems. But she definitely affected my life. She always had a kind word for me. She was an encourager to me. She made me remember why I long to do ministry. And now she's gone. I weep for her family and her friends and for me--for the loss of not having her here on earth. But to want her to return would only be selfish of me. Thanks Evelyn. I don't ever think I told you how much your kind words meant to me.
