"Life is Loss, Love & Legacy."

Yesterday was my 47th birthday. I spent it at the Memorial Service for my sister in-law's Dad, who was truly a very special man, who loved the Lord, and his family, and was honored very well by many grown men who he coached on a 1966 National Championship team, and also by his son and his son in-law, my brother. He was actually my sister-in-law's step dad, but she lost her dad in a coal mining accident when she was 5, so this special man was her dad for the past 30 years. I also enjoyed the day, getting lots of loving from my 3 1/2 year old granddaughter.
I treated my self earlier in the week by buying Kelly Minter's CD, Loss, Love & Legacy. I have enjoyed listening to the whole CD over and over. I especially like the song Loss, Love & Legacy. Life truly is just that! We all experience loss of some kind. Hopefully, we all experience true love, God's love, and hopefully we all desire to leave a lasting Legacy, pointing others to God.

If you didn't come here from Spiritual Sundays, go here! You will be so blessed, and you can link up your own post, too. Thank you so much, Charlotte and Ginger for hosting Spiritual Sundays and to all the others who link up such great heartfelt, encouraging posts!
I pray God's blessings on all of you!


  1. Happy Birthday! The LORD bless thee, and keep thee: The LORD make his face shine upon thee,
    and be gracious unto thee: The LORD lift up his countenance upon thee, and give thee peace.
    ~ Numbers 6:24-26

  2. I'm sorry for you loss. This book seem like it would be a good one, along with the study. Were looking for a new book for our ladies class, I will have to suggest this.
    God Bless,

  3. Happy birthday, Sandy! I'm also sorry for your loss. That looks like a good book! Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful weekend.


  4. Happy Belated Birthday Sandy! You are a blessing!
    I will say a prayer for your family during this time of loss.
    Glad you're enjoying the CD. I'm still praying about what Bible Study to tackle this summer. Not feeling led towards Ruth, but we'll see!
    Have a great weekend!

  5. Happy Birthday..I never heard of Kelly Minter but have been listening since you posted here. Powerful. Thanks for this. He's a new favorite of mine. Have the best weekend....

  6. Isn't God faithful? In times of loss and sadness He provides us with His Word and the opportunity to communicate with other believer's who hunger for the Word. The Bible Study group sounds awesome. Be comforted and know His peace.

  7. Happy Birthday, Sandy! I picked up my Ruth book at LPL a couple weekends ago. My mom and I are going to do it together, but I would love to join you on-line for this study. I can't wait to get started!

  8. Happy Birthday, Sandy. I went to Kelly's site and listened to the song. I had never heard it before. It's beautiful. Thank you for sharing this information.

  9. Happy Birthday, Sandy!
    Like Charlotte, I just spent time listening to Kelly's message ... then several more -I'm hooked!
    Thank you for helping share her message, and may your "new year" bring you many blessings.


  10. Hello Sandy, Happy Birthday and may you have many more.

    I too now love that song. Thank you for the link.
    Prayers and blessings for your SIL's loss of her dad. He sounds like someone I would have admired.
    Blessings, Jeanne

  11. Happy Birthday. I'm going to listen to the song on Kelly's site. Thanks for the post.
