Lisa’s memorial service was today. It was both very joyful & hopeful while also being sad.
I don’t think it’s sunk in yet for me. That there will be no more memories made with Lisa here on earth. It might not sink in that she is gone and just not moved geographically until it’s a few years out, when all of my friends and I grow older and my idea of Lisa is frozen in time.
The service was wonderful. Point blank asking what Lisa would ask of each of us. “What are you going to choose? In this moment of sadness, are you going to turn to God? Or are you going to turn from God?”
She was never shy about calling people out. Pointing out truth. In moments of sorrow, our hope is in turning to God.
