The service for remembering Bonnie brought honor to her life and Hope to our hearts. A DVD will soon be available…needless to say it was an incredible time to remember a person so highly loved while focusing our HOPE on what matters most in life.
One of the advantages of waiting several days until we corporately gathered together to celebrate Bonnie’s life is that, for me the wait created, “space”…
• space to begin to process what life without Bonnie would mean
• space to “Be Still and know that He is God”
• space to continue the grieving process
• space to talk with friends and family
• space for God
Family has arrived and most have left, friends are here surrounding us with love, and cards of prayers and encouragement continue to be daily reminders of God’s faithfulness. What more can be said about a soft spoken, gracious, loving wife, mom, & friend who made herself available for God to use in some powerful ways (and it’s an incredible reminder that God also uses the introverts to impact the kingdom).
