To those who have gone before me ....

Today and yesterday are opporutnities for the church to specifically remember those who have gone on to their eternal reward, both as martyrs and examples for us to follow.

Thank you, Lord, for those who have sacrificed themselves for the faith, whose blood has made for fertile ground for the growth of the worldwide church.

It brings back something I experienced as a personal vision...washed up from the tumultuous sea, I approached a hill that rose straight up and began to climb...I realized that my footing was actually other people, and the goal was a peak where I was afforded perfect clarity. I hope to be one of those people for someone else's climb. I praise God for those that have known God's faithfulness and have themselves proved faithful!
