Saying Goodbye...

My sweet grandad passed away this week after a short battle with cancer. He was the kind of man that everyone loved and wanted to be around. He had children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren that he loved and took great pride in. He was baptist, right down to the suit and tie and though fear tried to creep in during these last days, he never wavered from his faith in Jesus.

He served in the Marines when he was a young man and his dream has always been to have a military funeral. I've posted some pics so that you can see that his dream came true. It was so moving. His grandsons and great-grandsons were the pallbearers and it was a striking sight to see them carry the flag-draped casket to its final resting place. My grandad would have been so proud. I was so proud...of the man he was...of the life he lived...of the legacy he left behind.

We'll miss you Grandad.

I just need to brag on some of the sweetest girls I know! JANES is the women's ministry of Bay Area Fellowship and the leaders that serve are some of the most creative, talented, generous, fun-loving girls you've ever met. They are bound together by their love for Jesus and for their fellow JANES and they have answered a call to reach out to other women in our church and our community. They have a huge vision and such enthusiasm and I am amazed at the sacrifices they make in order to make sure God's work is accomplished. I am so proud to serve alongside them!

Here's a pic of our JANES coordinators! For more pics of the extraordinary ladies that make up this amazing team, hop over to our new JANES blog and check it out. It's still under construction, but feel free to sneak a peek!
