They will soar on wings like eagles; 

they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint. Isaiah 40:31

I was fortunate enough to attend a local funeral service, recently, and participate in rejoicing a “going home” celebration for a woman full of love and grace. 

She was a Christian servant with the smile of an angel and the grace of a saint. 

Twice, you may have noticed, I have proferred the word “Grace.” 

It’s funny now as I think of that word, but it reflects how some special believers not only read the Bible and live different lessons from the Scripture. We tend to accept those things we can understand or agree with, but if it doesn’t make sense to us, we make excuses in order not to have to believe. 

With that in mind, I want to share several powerful Scriptural truths this lovely mother, grandmother and great-grandmother left for her Christian family to learn and practice this “Grace.”  

First and foremost, she glorified God. 

Many think of God as a huge Santa Claus who exists only to fulfill their wishes. Yet, she never forgot that God is the Maker; we are His creation. 

He is the master; we are the servants.
