In case you have not realized yet - Heaven and Earth are full of some pretty amazing people!
Two of those people share the last name Lenaburg!! Courtney, who's birth and remarkable life we celebrate today occupies a heavenly abode, and her mom, Mary, continues to bless us here in the earthy realm. Both, though maybe they would not give themselves this title - are heroes and one of them (for now at least) is most certainly a Saint! While not officially canonized, you would be hard pressed to convince me that this precious young woman is not basking in the glories of God right along side the "big S" saints, all the angels and, of course, Our Blessed Mother. You would also be hard pressed to get me to stop praying for her intercession, especially after Mary confided that Courtney is particularly good with cars, sewerage and bankruptcy!!
Mary Lenaburg, was a very special guest last week on A Seeking Heart with Allison Gingras - honestly I was spellbound as she shared her heart with us. I am so glad the Holy Spirit shut my mouth, so He could maximize what was coming out of hers!! With grace, an abundant amount of humor, and incredible faith - Mary shared how her life as Courtney's Mom is truly one great vocation of love. It is the love she and her amazing family (including her perfectly matched hubby Jerry and hysterically funny son Jonathan) shared with Courtney, and the outpouring of love Courtney emanated while among us and most definitely from her heavenly home that is COURTNEY'S LEGACY OF LOVE that we, even if only through cyberspace, are blessed to receive even the tiniest piece!
Please join Mary and her family, in reclaiming the JOY of Courtney's birthday with #ProjectBlessed - and perhaps sending a little love to the Lenaburg's in the form of a donation ...
