Happy Homecoming

Yesterday I lost a friend I never met.

Kara, from the wonderful blog Mundane Faithfulness, went to meet Jesus. 

Kara was the devoted wife of pastor Jason Tippets.

Wonderful mother to Eleanor, Harper, Lake and Story Jane.

While so many screamed and shouted, trying to get their point across, Kara quietly and courageously taught us what it really means to die with dignity.

We are all given a finite number of days. The exact amount is never known.

It is a rare and beautiful person who can live each day fully, completely and

Ever inspiring.

 

Thank you Kara.

I'm always struck by how hard mothers fight to stay alive for their children. Those are the saddest fights to lose.

Writing this through tears...so sad and yet she was so brave. May God grant her family the comfort and strength they need at this difficult time and may He give them His Peace...

In the midst of all the sadness, loss, unanswered question of why, it's wonderful to know that she is whole again with the Lord and that her family has the hope of one day being together again.

I never knew about Kara's blog nor her battle before I read your post tonight, Laura. Our hearts ache when we lose a dear friend or loved one but gives me a measure of comfort to know that they had a personal relationship with Jesus and that they truly are in a much better place. They are at Home with Jesus. We will meet those dear, sweet souls again!

My daughter introduced me to Kara's blog in early January and I have been following her story and praying for her family since. What an amazing woman. I am so thankful that she had the courage and boldness to share her faith in such a real and powerful way. Now my prayers are focused on her family and friends who while sorrowing at her death, are rejoicing at her restoration in Heaven.
