In Memory: Mrs. Denise Sproul

"...And this is what I feel compelled to say: Tonight, stop and take a really good look at your spouse. Next, look at each of your children. Look really, really long and hard. Take a moment and thank God for every whisper of a moment that God has given you with them. Thank God for the little kisses offered, the stories told, the tickles dispensed, the games played, the readings shared, the silent moments cherished, the victories experienced, the losses endured, the kind words presented , the songs sung, the glances exchanged. These moments not only count for eternity, but they will be remembered for the next billion years after you leave this minuscule moment in time called “life.” Every moment with your loved one matters. Someday they or you will be gone. Every conversation matters. Every kind deed in the name of Christ matters. It all matters...."  Doug Phillips, Vision Forum

I learned this evening that Denise Sproul, wife to R.C. Sproul Jr., mama to 8, friend to many and sister in the Lord passed away after her battle with leukemia.   I am so very saddened to hear of her passing. She was always a willing listener, a sweet encourager and a godly exampleMay the Lord surround her family with His presence and fill their hearts with His peace.

 "This morning we do not bury my wife's body in a cemetery, 
but plant her body in a garden. It will bloom incorruptible when He returns" 
R.C. Sproul, Jr.
Denise wrote a wonderful book to homemaking, homeschooling moms entitled "Tending Your Garden".   This book is being made available for donation by Christian Reader and all proceeds go to the Sproul family.
