Keeping the Faith

Guen was not one to tear people down. I have felt strongly that one of our biggest jobs is to encourage and build others up. God says you are either for Him or against Him. It is His kindness that leads to repentance. If you have encountered someone who is critical, you feel like fleeing. You feel that they are not for you, but against you. My sister was the opposite of that. We had lots of talks about what God expects of us, and how to do this thing called life.

Never assuming, or pretending to have clarity, she was always concerned about others feelings and doing the right thing. There were times when she lost patience, but ever so briefly. If I had any sort of heads up, I would have loved to write down things she said verbatim. Not having this type of foresight, I will have to recall much from memory.

At one time she was a runner. Guen fought the good fight, she finished the race, and she kept the faith (referring to 2Timothy 4:7) Her funeral was 2 weeks ago. Her race happened to be very short.
