Today was one of the most beautiful days of my life.  Today, with my very best friends, we were consecrated as deaconesses to do the work of God.  Not to preach the Word, but to work behind the scenes, to do the things other either don't want to or can't.  Sit with the dying, pray for the sick, comfort those in need...the messy things in life.

What made it so poignant  is that our Pastor, (who happens to be my BFF's father, and other BFF's uncle), on his dying bed, performed the consecration.  I don't ever want to forget the power in his voice when he spoke to us and encouraged us...for over twenty five minutes; this when he has barely had energy for more than a few words. 

I just had to put it in writing.  My heart is full.  I really don't have words.  Today may be the last time I see him on this side. I will see him again Glory.  But it is well with my heart and soul.  I will honor his memory  by being faithful to God and carrying on the work started long, long ago.
