Hey guys! It has been a great but super busy and tiring weekend filled with many emotions. On Saturday, I had my friends sisters wedding to attend. Even though I don’t know the sister very well, it meant so much to my friend to come to the wedding. Remember to be there for your friends always. Even if you feel like you are a terrible friend sometimes, the least you can do is be there for someone and invest in them when it really counts.
The next morning, my amazing boyfriend Bryce woke up super early to drive me to Ohio for my great grandma’s funeral. The whole situation with that has been very hard on me, but he has been so supportive and caring the entire time! My friends have also been so supportive as well, and I’m so thankful God gives me reminders that others care about the hardships in my life.
So anyways, back to the sad part with the funeral. I’ve never really experienced death in my family before. Honestly, it still doesn’t feel real. Death is so hard. I think the hardest part for me is seeing everyone else cry and be so sad, because then I feel so bad and start crying as well. But death, though it’s sad, can teach us so many things.
Death reminds us to be thankful for what we have now, because it isn’t promised tomorrow. It reminds us that God is so good, and He will bring us to an amazing place someday soon where we can be so happy and glorify Him for ETERNITY.
Something that everyone recalled about my great grandma was the fact that she was so hospitable. She was the type of person who loved unconditionally. She loved her family, and she spent her entire life investing in others.
What do you want people to remember you for? I know that the question seems daunting, but it really can give us something to think about. For me personally, I want to be remembered for loving Jesus wholeheartedly and accepting every single adventure he sets in front of me as I go through life.
We can die at any moment, so whatever your answer was to my question- start living it out NOW! And remember that we aren’t promised tomorrow, so chose Jesus today. Chose Jesus everyday. Accept Him into your heart, and you can be with him forever. Heaven is gonna be a great place guys, and I don’t want any of you to miss out on it!
Dealing with death is hard. But God is our greatest comfort always. He has a plan, and He is always good! Remember that it’s okay to be sad, you don’t always have to keep it together. I know this is kind of a random post that’s sort of sad and gloomy, but this is life guys. Life isn’t always happy and perfect. It has ups and downs, and I’m here to share both. – Cami
