In Loving Memory of Robert Applegate

Robert, my grandfather-in-law, went to be with the Lord this past Saturday. "All is well." That was one of his signature affirmations. Years ago, when all hell was breakin' loose due to my husband's addiction and my co-dependency, Robert shuffled through the house affirming, "Peace, peace. All is well." Today, Michael and I share a peaceful life together.

I once told Robert I'd considered seminary school, but feared it would ruin my relationship with Jesus. With a twinkle in his eye, he replied, "It might." (Robert held a PhD in Theology.)

I've yet to meet anyone as intent on loving Jesus as he. To be closer to God was what he wanted most out of life. Now he knows the fullness of what we only know in part.

I wish I'd heard his words for what they were at the time: seeds of redemption faithfully sown in a field of dysfunction. And I wish I'd said 'thank you' when he was alive.

Do you have a "Robert" in your life? Someone who faithfully believes for your healing and redemption? Someone whose thoughtful prayers continue to propel you forward? Today is a great day to write a thank you note. Inquire how you can pray for them. Sow seeds of gratitude today. Ask God for eyes to see His grace at work throughout difficult circumstances.
