OFF SCRIPT

Sometimes life brings the unexpected and we find ourselves off script.  In other moments, opportunities arise that require us to deliberately choose to go off script.  
In today’s very special episode, I want to celebrate and honor my sister Marilyn.  A year ago, Marilyn was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease).  Last Monday, Marilyn’s earthly journey ended as her heavenly homecoming began.  She was prepared for her ultimate off script moment because of her relationship with Jesus.
This past week, I have been reflecting on the beautiful grace of Marilyn.  In her most challenging days, she remained courageous, positive, and kept on putting others first before herself.  In 2015, Marilyn and I spent a week serving together in Haiti.  Even as I was grieving, I recalled one single, defining moment of Marilyn in Haiti that brought a huge smile to my heart.  I pray it challenges and encourages you as well.

  1. It is with great sadness that Marilyn, a wonderful & beautiful person, inside & out leaves our world. She was an Angel on earth & God needed his Special Angel back in Heaven.
    Marilyn will always be remembered and missed by all who knew & loved her.
    My prayers & condolences are with the family.

  2. Your words brought back a flood of memories from that trip and so much that GOD had planned. I am sure much of that trip was off script but not off God’s plan. So thankful that I got to meet your sister Marilyn on that trip. And glad she had the insight and strength to follow God’s plan and go off script and that even tho she is gone her work from that trip is still benefitting the many many people of Port de Paix.
    It is always amazing to me to see how God weaves things together to use people to accomplish HIS ultimate plan.
    My sincerest condolences as you walk this journey of grief. May God give you and your family comfort.
    Love you bother, Mitzi
