Heaven Is Sweeter A Tribute To Sis. Brenda Horton

Hey Friends,

Hello from Odie. The BoggsMobile is on the move. We are traveling today. Thanks for spending a brief moment of your day with me. I am honored when any of you drop in for a visit.

Heaven Gets Sweeter Each Day 
Before this year began, I knew we would have unforeseen surprises. There is no way that I could have imagined saying goodbye to several dear friends already in 2023.

We ended 2022 with a funeral for our precious Aunt Zora in Ohio.

Less than a week into the year, we lost our beloved friend Mark Capps.

I also learned of the sudden passing of my sweet friend Jolynn Evans from Wichita, Kansas.

A Tribute To Sis. Brenda Horton
Last week we were devasted to hear of yet another friend that was unexpectantly called home! We will forever miss Sis. Brenda Horton! It still seems impossible for this blessed saint of God to be gone! 

It was an honor to know Sis. Brenda Horton! It was a pleasure to be counted among her numerous friends! The Bible says to have friends, we must show ourselves friendly. Well, Sis. Brenda truly lived out that verse. She was a friend to everyone around her!

She was genuinely caring, kind, compassionate, loyal, loving, wise and so much more! She brought joy and happiness into any room she entered.

I loved listening to her conversations! She was always ready to tell a story about her life and adventures! Her family and church family were her favorite people! She was proud of them!

Sis. Brenda always had a song to sing. She was known to be a walking songbook. It was fun to sing with her during a long altar service. I would learn some "new to me" songs along the way. 

Sis. Brenda was known for her smile! She lit up a room with her happiness! Her life was lived to the fullest. She was devoted to always working for God! Her love for Christian education was astounding! 

That is just a small tribute to a wonderful friend! I am grateful to have been a tiny part of her life. I am thankful for the memories of our times with her! She will forever be one of my Holiness Heroes that impacted my life greatly! 

I encourage you to read her obituary here. It is a beautiful tribute to our wonderful friend. You can get a glimpse into the life she lived. 

Please join me in praying for all those connected to the Horton family and The Grace Tabernacle Church family in Bristol, Virginia. They will be trying to figure out their new normal for a while!

All of the people that I mentioned in this post are missed by many! Their families and friends need prayer right now. We will never understand why they had to leave this earth. I do know that Heaven gets sweeter each day! I am looking forward to a big reunion in Heaven!

Thanks for reading. See you next week.
