On April 20, 4:45 PM, our dear friend Maysel Christy passed INTO greater life.
As most of you know, Maysel is loved by SO many! Active in our church for decades, she has served Cross of Glory as our Financial Secretary FOREVER! She was one of the few REGULAR, Sunday after Sunday participants in our Adult Sunday School class. Always cheerful, smiling and encouraging, she brightened ALL our lives.
We will not recover from this tremendous loss but to say, that taking to heart her love for Jesus, her love for her family, church and friends, we will try to honor her memory by doing the best job we can to follow in her example. Maysel knew her Lord and Savior Jesus the Christ. More importantly, Jesus the Christ knew Maysel.
We had recently studied Paul’s letter Colossians in Sunday School together. From Colossians 3: “Put on therefore as the elect of God, holy and beloved, kindness, humility, meekness and longsuffering. Above all of these things, put on love which is the bond of perfection. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts as you are called in one body. Be thankful!” Maysel could have written what Paul wrote. After all, the above sentiments were written all over Maysel.
Maysel’s celebration of life service was at Cross of Glory on Saturday, April 28. Husband Tom and children, Leigh Ann and Stephen, thank everyone who so graciously helped to make the day a time of fond remembrance of Maysel’s continued impact and example in honoring Christ.
God’s Peace and Love to you, brothers and sisters in Christ. Please remember Tom, Leigh Ann and Stephen in your prayers and best wishes.
