In Honor of My Beloved Sister…Kimberly

In the midst of all the busyness of today…I almost forgot the significance of today. Today would of been my sister Kimberly’s 26th birthday. Some of you may know but many may not know that I had a little sister. I also have an amazing younger brother Vincent whom I love and so proud of. However, my sister Kimberly was the youngest of the 3 of us and in my opinion, the strongest because of what she had to go through. She was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 4 and I was 10. She lost her fight to cancer and passed away 2 years later. In the 6 years of her life she showed me so much strength, perseverance and love.

I remember the night before she died and praying to God to save her and if He saved her, I would give my life to Him and follow Him. God however did not answer my prayer the way I thought He would. My sister went to be with Jesus the next day. It was not until a few months ago going over my testimony of how I made Jesus, the Lord and Savior of my life 11 years ago, that God showed me the answer to my prayer that night. He spoke to me so clearly that He did save my sister and she is with Him and that I did eventually give my life to Him and follow Him. That blew me away and humbled me so much!

Today, I want to honor her because she was a wonderful person and I believe that she made a difference with her life. Through her life and what God has done in my life, God has placed a desire in me to reach young women and see them have a relationship with Jesus!
