Yesterday we buried Michele ;She was a young woman of 41 who recently died following a very brave batlle with cancer. Michele leaves a devoted family, and as they were very proud of her ,she I am sure would have been very proud of the way they took part in her funeral despite the obvious pain they were feeling in their loss.
During the service my mind went back to the fantastic occasion when Michele testified to her faith in Jesus by being being baptised ,it was a wonderful service ,full of joy and praise !
The symbolism of baptism is powerful as Michele went down into the water she was saying I die to myself as she came up out of the water she was proclaiming I rise to live again for Jesus!
Michele did live for Jesus in the short time that was left to her, and now she has gone to be with Him forever
We took Michelle to the grave and left her there; knowing that God would not leave her there
Our thoughts and prayers are with Kevin ,the children and all Michele's family
