Be an Example

Good and Bad Examples are everywhere, all around us. I want to be a good one. How? I don’t know, I guess you just have to be good. Being good doesn’t mean that you have a perfect life or that only good things happen to you, but I think it means you seek out the good in any situation you find yourself in.

My Sister A is a Good Example of being a Good Example. She is not perfect and she has had more than her fair share of trials and pain and in the past few years she has had more than several peoples fair share of such things. But she also has a Truckload of Faith! And that is why she is my Good Example.

We all make plans for our lives, and the twists and turns that have happened in A’s life over the past few years could never have been planned, most of them would have been thought impossible. But as we all know, and sometimes try hard to forget, we don’t get to choose the path our lives will take. We get to choose some things, but others, whether they are joys or trials, are given to us. It is what we do when we are given those joys or trials that makes us who we are.

A- will soon be Single again. This is most definitely not what she had planned. But I look at her, I see what she does (she keeps going, she keeps moving forward) I hear what she says and read what she writes (she has 2 + blogs) and I know deep down inside that she is going to be able make it through this trial in her life, one that we can expect will have effects that last for a long time, I can almost see her rising up like a Phoenix, still her, but refined even more then she is now. I want you to read what she wrote- because it touched my heart and I am very sure that it will touch yours if you let it.

Big Sister A, I love you. You are a Good Example to me of a Woman of Faith, A Woman of Prayer, A Woman of Humility and a True Follower of Christ. I love you. You are one of my Heroes.
