Lyndsie was loved and cherished by every single person that knew her. She was a light; radiant and so beautiful inside and out. It seems so trite, but that's truly how anyone would describe her. She loved the Lord with her whole heart and desired nothing more than to serve Him with her life.
Lyndsie was the devoted and loving wife of Daniel, and I witnessed firsthand how deep their love was for each other. They absolutely adored each other and seeing them together was inspiring and so precious. They served each other in everything, and I was privileged to spend time with them as a couple, as we shared our hearts and talked about anything and everything. I truly hold those times in my heart and weep in remembrance of those sweet moments together.
Lyndsie was also an absolutely amazing mother to her sweet Ethan and Aubrey. Their adoption stories are miracles of the Lord, and it was an incredible privilege for me to walk with Lyndsie and Daniel through those times. We cried together and praised the Lord together as those two precious babies were brought into their lives. Ethan and Aubrey will always know how much their incredible mother loved and cherished them. She absolutely thrived in being a Mommy and her legacy will absolutely be found in them.
I met Lyndsie through blogging, and we walked a journey a friendship that is a rare treasure. We met in person at the Created for Care adoption retreat, and I spent time laughing and having the best time with Lyndsie and her mom Melanie and sister Kendyl. I cherish all of Lyndsie's family and could see why she is such an amazing person when I spent time with them.
Lyndsie is spending eternity in Heaven because she gave her life to Jesus Christ and accepted His free gift of salvation. She knew she could rest in His perfect plan, which we don't always understand. But we can always trust Him. I know Lyndsie wouldn't want me to write anything about her that didn't include an invitation to trust Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior and surrender your life to Him. If you don't know the peace that comes from walking with Jesus, please contact me. I would love to share with you why we are confident that we will see Lyndsie again one day.
Lyndsie, I love you so much! I cherish and hold you in my heart, and I will miss your smile and encouragement more than words can say. Thank you for loving me and for being such an incredible friend. I can't stop my tears as I write this; my heart is truly broken. I will see you again, my precious, sweet Lyndsie!
With my deepest love and gratitude for your friendship,
