We will miss you Jackie…

This has been a hard week.  Yesterday we lost a dear friend and huge supporter of Zoie Sky, Jackie Lewis.  Jackie was an amazing person.  She left a huge legacy behind of giving and serving.  She was a true example of Christ in our community.  She served on the board of All Grace Outreach (AGO) as a director.  Through her position at AGO she gave many grants to Zoie Sky because she believed in our mission to help children in need.  This was her life’s work to care for children and she will be greatly missed. Jackie did more in her short life for the Kingdom of God than many have ever done.  She was a true follower of Christ and the example she left is a challenge to us all to do more, live louder, and be more like Christ everyday.  None of us know how many days we have to build the Kingdom, and we don’t want to waste a single one.  We know Jackie didn’t waste a single second and when she entered heaven she heard the words we all long to hear “Well done”.  May we all hear those same words when we see Christ.  Jackie leaves behind a husband and four young children.  Please pray for this family as they walk this journey of grief.  May we as friends comfort them and carry some of their burden.  During this time of mourning let us hold strong to the words from God in Psalm 30:5

“Weeping may last for the night, but joy comes in the morning.”
