Heaven is home

It's taken me days to write this, because the emotions are still raw, it's surreal, and I get emotional from just thinking about her...

Minister Lenora, Jan 2011
There is no statistical figure available to show how many lives Minister Lenora Freeman Speller impacted in her lifetime. There's no way to adequately describe the quality she brought to a room or the way she touched people, whether they knew her for years or minutes, in-person or virtually through talks with our brethren in Kenya, through teaching or learning, praying and interceding, worshiping the Father through dance under the anointing, or just cracking up with us during dance practice. I wholeheartedly believe she was a godly woman.

I just feel so blessed from having known her, and I thank God for the example she provided to so many of us of what it means to be a Christian. Regardless of age or gender, you could tell by the way she lived that she loved God for real. Of course, she wasn't perfect -- who among us is? --  but what an amazing legacy. Now, for eternity, she's actually doing what she so diligently practiced and lived here on earth -- glorifying the Almighty, in the presence of the Jesus the Christ, crying "Holy, Holy, Holy! Worthy is the Lamb!" with the beasts and the angels and the elders casting their crowns at His feet. And to this vision I can't help but cry out, "Hallelujah... my God, thank you Jesus, Hallelujah!"

I'm continuing to pray and lift up the family -- husband, children, mother, siblings, nieces and nephews, and so many others. Please know you are dearly loved.
