Lately I've been following the last journals of Kara Tippetts and her husband, Jason, at Mundane Faithfulness. It's a blessing, a grief, a joy, a sorrow....even though I don't know them personally they have opened their hearts and lives as she has neared her own death from cancer.
The reality of death and its heavy hand on each of us makes us focus on what is really important. Kara and Jason are doing that. There is nothing that sobers and focuses our lives like the end of it. I know thousands have been encouraged by Kara and Jason's words and faith.
Her life and death models what a walk with God should look like....trusting him even in the hard days. If you haven't followed her story I encourage you to do so. It will help you in your own walk with God. You can find her story here.
