    I'm trying to do that these days! My life, my house, my brain is just so cluttered! Time to sweep it all out and enjoy what really matters...family, nature, God, hobbies and treasured moments.

Thanks for such a great reminder!

In Memory of My Friend

Monday, September 01, 2014

The Deacon at my church was someone you liked immediately. He had a smile that was contagious, plus a mysterious way of making you feel very special the second you met him. After being in his presence for a few minutes, you knew he had a very intimate relationship with the Lord. Plus you felt his genuine loving spirit and especially enjoyed his ability to make you laugh. Everyone who knew him, called him Deacon Bill with a very respectful and loving tone in their voices.

On Saturday, August 23, 2014, Deacon Bill answered a call for the local electric department which he was the superintendent of. For some reason, he was the only worker who was at the call for help; no one else appeared to be coming.

Deacon Bill did everything by the book and has extremely careful. However, this day was different. Deacon Bill watched a young mother and her four year old son inside their trailer in danger of being electrocuted because a live wire was almost touching their trailer, as well as sparks coming from the wire. Deacon Bill had only one choice, to move the wire, as well as possibly lose his life to save this mother and her son.

On Saturday, August 23, 2014, Deacon Bill sacrificed his life. The wire he moved burst into flames and fell on him. He was was electrocuted. His accident was investigated and the report verified that he is a true hero. Everyone in that trailer park knew he sacrificed his life.

When our church family and our community celebrated Deacon Bill's life, I learned all the loving, giving things this man had done for others. Everything he did, he did because of his love for Christ and he genuine desire to make others know how much they were loved.

I will miss Deacon Bill's humor and his big smile, but I know that he is still here...I am so blessed to have been in his presence, as well as to have personally been a friend.

On this Labor Day, I am remembering a remarkable worker, friend and hero, Deacon Bill. He gave the greatest gift one can give, to lay down his life for another.

“All heroes are shadows of Christ” ― John Piper , especially Deacon Bill.

    What a deeply loving man of God! He truly followed Paul's words - "For me to live is Christ and to die is gain." He sacrificed himself for that family and is now with Jesus. I'm so sorry for your loss and the loss of your church family.

    We are all here for a reason and when we have completed God's will He takes us home. Indeed Deacon Bill is a hero as that was his purpose on this earth. He has a special place in God's home and awaits us all.

Embrace his life and know that he is rejoicing now.

    I went 4 1/2 years without finding a job. Luckily I lived off the stock market saving I had. each year I took out $12,000.00, and the gov't taxed me $5500.oo on it. I had really lower my standard of living. Did nothing, and learned to eat like a vegetarian, and go to food banks. I really miss people and working. Even though the work itself wasn't what I liked. Part of my re4ason for being in this site was to keep myself from missing work. But have you looked at the news lately? It really looks like we as a nation won't be able to ignore or get partly involved this time. It's scary, looks liker world war three! Sorry about delivering such a negative comment! lol, eva
