Though our families knew each other long before I was even born, my visits with Melicent were few and far between. However, it didn’t take a lot of time to see who Melicent was and what she lived for. Her beaming face was clearly created by the light of Jesus shining in and through her. Her enthusiasm was contagious! She loved her Savior so fiercely she couldn’t help but bring Him into every conversation she had. While I couldn’t have put words to what I experienced in my visits with Melicent 15 or 20 years ago, I knew she was wonderfully different then most believers I knew. As my own faith has deepened and I seek to glorify God in every moment of every day I can now understand why the memory of her face makes me beam from ear to ear and why my spirit soars as I picture her dancing and praising God as she stands in His very presence! How truly amazing!
