Yesterday was All Saints’ Day.
In the morning, we remembered our Christian brothers and sisters who have gone to eternal life. We specifically lit candles to remember just a few:
🔥Perpetua (look up her story), a Christian martyr under Rome
🔥Jim Elliot, missionary
🔥Stephen, one of the very first martyrs
🔥Hannah, my husband’s sister
🔥Andrew’s great Aunt Dot
🔥my grandfather, Papa
🔥my great Aunt Becky
We listened to “Behold, A Host Arrayed in White” and thought about our friends. We say friends because we feel we know every one of these people as friends, from taking in their stories through the living Word and living stories.
