Shining For Jesus-Marsha

A bright, shining light of Sonshine arrived at our door yesterday. She came all the way from North Carolina, just to spread His love to two people here in Tennessee. You all know her as Marsha from Marsha's musings. She came through our door, and immediately our spirits were lifted. She gave us both great big hugs, and smiled that beautiful smile of hers, that truly lights up a room. We visited for a little while, and then she took on the role that she is so wonderful at, Godly servant. She took us to the lab so lovebug could get some blood work done, then to Walmart so we could get some groceries. She treated us to a delicious lunch, but her company was the best part of the meal. We shared tears, laughter, great conversation, hearts, and even a couple of songs. Shortybear and lovebug will never forget this day, the day that Marsha spread Sonshine all over two lives that had recently been flooded by some major storms. Thank you for loving us dear sis, may you be blessed as you bless others. We love you with all of our hearts.

Jennifer said...

What a blessing! I saw it on her Facebook yesterday and wished I could have come along for the ride. Well, she would have had to drive an extra 7 hours west to pick me up before coming to see you guys but it would have been fun!

I love how God brings precious, loving, serving people into our lives when we need them the most.

Love you, Denise!

God is always with us, but still it's nice to have someone with skin on to show up too, huh? Thank you for sharing your blessing!

How totally awesome!
You know I have been praying that someone would be able to walk in the shoes she did...thank you God!
I am so glad ya'll had a great visit and that your spirits were refreshed.
That is what the body of Christ is supposed to look like....the hands and feet of Jesus here on this earth.

Marsha said...

Oh my...You make me blush! It's Jesus in me. It was my privilege to be the hands and feet (and transportation) of Jesus for 2 of my dear,dear friends. Love you both immeasurably.

WHAT A WONDERFUL day you had!

Rebecca said...

I pray that there will continue to be many "Marshas" for you and your lovebug. Your faith inspires me. Your dedication to one another and to Jesus challenges me to examine my own and exercise it!

I am so glad that Marsha took the time to spread some sunshine -- she is good at that :)

Love & peace,
Iris

Debbie said...

I am so glad to read how Marsha went out of her way to spread the Sonshine. I don't think she can help herself. She has Jesus leaking out all over and that splashes on those she encounters, doesn't it?

I continue to remember you and your lovebug in prayer.

Love you,
Debbie
