life is more interesting when you are happy....

Earlier today, the Harris family buried their daughter, Kelsey.
Kelsey had been battling brain cancer for quite some time. She lost the fight on Monday.
I did not know this 16 year old girl personally.
I only knew of her by the example and influence she had on so many of the young adults at churches of Christ around the tri-state area who knew her.
Even as she fought for her life, she was content with her circumstances~because as she said often, "Life is more interesting when you are happy!".
She knew that when she lost the battle here on earth, she would be entering the bosom of Abraham.
She had the confidence that with God's mercy she will hear the words, "Well done my good and faithful servant..." on the day of judgement.
Her time on this earth was short~~but she packed as much LIFE into as she could.
IN 2009 I WANT TO…

Write something worth reading
Read something worth sharing
Say something worth repeating
Give something worth getting
Choose something worth keeping
Sacrifice something worth giving up
Go somewhere worth seeing
Eat something worth tasting
Hug someone worth holding
Buy something worth treasuring
Cry tears worth shedding
Do something worth watching
Risk something worth protecting
Listen to something worth hearing
Teach something worth learning
Be someone worth knowing.
Kelsey Harris
Our prayers go out the Harris family.
