Occasionally, you get the honor of honoring someone who raised someone who turned out to be flipping amazing. My friend Kristen is flipping amazing and she married a flipping amazing man named Brandon and together they made two flipping amazing kids. They are the children’s pastors at our church and they have taught my kids and their mom so very much about Jesus, love, grace and service. They have the magical ability of making you feel that you are loved just the way you are and that grace is as much a gift from God as the air you breath. They are full of joy and laughter and commitment and you cannot be in their presence without knowing that Christ is the Savior of the world. Brandon has baptized my daughters and taught my kids about love and Jesus and Kristen nurtures my teenaged girls… This list can go on for paragraphs.
Thank you to their parents and to those who raised them to love the Lord, It trickled down to all of us here at the countrygirlexperiment and continues to trickle down to our families, friends and neighbors.
This week is about Kristen’s Dad, Pastor Travis, who taught her all those things so she could teach us. He, a pastor himself, is fighting stage 3 lung cancer and all the junk that goes with that. He turned 66 a few days ago and his daughter ( Kristen) launched a #66 Celebration to help raise funds for his treatment. . Again Flipping Amazing.
So in the spirit of being flipping amazing, I want to share her post with you and respectfully ask you to participate in the celebration of life for her dad, Travis Brasell. Head on over to her Blog and check out her plan.. It’s a brilliant idea and you will be blessed by her words!
( Organized by her flipping amazing brother Doug)
I love you K… Thank you for loving me for me, and thank you to the man who taught you to do that.
