Pastor took a potted plant that was in the podium and set it down on a rail. "She liked working on her flower farm; she used flowers in her ministry. She would bring a pot of flowers to someone that was hurting and pray for them. The flowers did more than to brighten up someone's day. It was a tool to remind them to stop and smell the flowers, to stop and focus on Jesus."
Pastor Gary paced a little, "Life can be challenging from time to time. What do you do when you have crises? Marge learned the value of turning to Jesus when she had problems. We can all learn from Marge and to pray when we have a crisis. It says in the book of Hebrews that he will never leave us or forsake us. He can provide for your needs. She was a blessing to this church and helped many people. That is why the care and counseling ministry, has been one of the most successful ministries, in our church," as Gary smiled.
Gary turned to his side and pointed at the cross on the wall. "Marge also appreciated what Jesus did for her on the cross, like she appreciated the flowers. Where would we be if Jesus had not died for us on the cross? If there is anyone here that does not know Jesus come talk to me after the service."
Turn to Jesus, accept him as your savior, he will solve your problems. This church was named Hope, to remind us to have hope in Jesus. Marge reminded us of that fact." Garry sat down as the casket was removed from the church.
Marge left her legacy through flowers and touched lives that will affect the counseling and care ministry for years to come.
