Caroling with an angelBy Melodie Davis
Her faith and her singing were inseparable.
“Singing was the primary thing that kept me connected to God and carried me through some of the darkest times,” she said.
I’m grateful for that photo of Laura and Ethan caroling, her last Christmas on Earth. I’m grateful to Laura for sharing her life and witness with others.
I will keep that precious picture and let it speak to me year after year. Am I living connected to God? Am I putting priority on family and faith? The picture also reminds me to keep praying for Ethan and his father.
This year, Laura is singing with the angels. We and her family would rather have her here, but that was not to be. The holidays are a difficult time for any family who has lost a loved one in the past year. We pray for God’s love to be with all those in that situation. A blessed Christmas to all.
