Remembering Rubs…I wear my red shoes today in honor of a her life, as her legacy lives on.
Sometimes the hardest thing to say to Jesus is Yes.
A simple, thought-provoking, Yes!
When we say yes to God, we don’t always know what lies on the other side of our yes.
We surrender our ways to His, trusting He knows better for us than we know for ourselves.
That He’s faithful and loves us better than we know how to love ourselves.
Saying yes doesn’t always mean it’ll be easy.
Saying yes is hard!
It’s hard loving the unlovable.
It’s hard forgiving the unforgivable.
It’s hard being inconvenienced.
But for Love…the man Jesus, we say YES!!!
Our yes may come with lots of hard attached to it, but saying yes to God, no matter what, is always worth it!
Two years ago today, my dear friends, Mitch and Katie, lost their beautiful two and a half year old daughter, Ruby Joy, to an unthinkable disease. While the loss of her sweet life was very hard and still stings with each passing day, month, year, we take joy in knowing that she is finally free!
Free of disease!
Free of hurt and pain!
Free to run, to jump, to play!
Free to be fully consumed and engrossed in Jesus.
Free to gaze upon His beauty and stand before Him on our behalf.
Long before Ruby was a thought in her parents minds, they said Yes!
In Ruby’s life, they constantly said yes.
Swamped with constant doctors appointments, they said yes.
Watching pain consume Ruby’s small frame, they cried yes.
No matter what, they cried yes.
They continue to cry yes!
Their lives and love causes me to cry Yes!
Mitch and Katie,
Thank you for modeling a life of yes before The Lord.
Thank you for your yes before the hard. It gave you sustenance for the hard.
Thank you for your yes during the hard. It creates a deep wellspring of life within you that’ll never run dry.
Your yes has and will continue to transform lives.
Thank you for fully living, loving and teaching us how to be fully present in this life. To run determined after the things we were created for…to love and be loved. With each passing day, week, month and year may our heart’s cry be your legacy…Making Jesus Known
