I can't believe it's been 6yrs. I still remember it like it was yesterday. I was so young and not ready for it at all!. I was roommates and soccer team mates with a wonderful Meggo - she, I felt, took me under her wing and showed me a lot about truly searching the scriptures and context and making my faith my own and learning. she was very smart and very mindful of theology and didn't believe it women dumbing down the Bible for themselves. She was so unique about so many things and so honest with herself and us about her weaknesses. Such a good leader. She died in a terrible car accident with another girl 6 yrs ago. The reality of our lives after death in heaven was so real to me after that. I learned so much about the Hope we have as believers and the grace that God gives through our lives. Even though we were sad b/c our good friend and mentor and soccer team mate was not with us - we were so happy for her to be with her father who we all knew she lived for and loved and looked forward to the day she was with him. even today my heart is heavy thinking about everything - but at the same time so excited to see her one day in heaven and thankful God did bring her into my life to show me what it's like to live the Christian life following God with all your heart.
