Farewell, Pastor Char!

Leave a comment


Many of us have people come into our lives for a season, someone who impacted you in some way or changed your perspective on life. Pastor Charlane was that person; sadly, she passed away.

Pastor Char, as she was known, was an amazing woman, a mighty warrior of God. She dedicated herself to the salvation of souls.

I met her in 2006 at a Christian retreat. My daughter invited me, and Pastor Char was one of the presenters. I remember her passion and her determination to bring us closer to knowing our Lord and Savior.

I was skeptical, and I did believe in God but not invested in him. I was your typical believer, attended service only on the holidays, or if someone passed away or was getting married. I admit, it is shameful to recognize, but it is true.

To know Pastor Char, it would surprise you that she was not always a pastor, but an educator. I learned a lot from her in every bible study group she taught. I was not a willing participant at first, but she had a way of making you feel at ease in a group of 12 ladies of faith.

I learned to search my inner self, to forgive those who hurt me and move on. The list is long and vast. I am better for it, and I am grateful for you, Pastor Charlane.

May you rest in peace and God bless.

I am a writer at heart. My love for writing was discovered back in 2009. I truly believe that it is never too late to discover your passion. I am originally from the Bronx of New York and presently reside​ in Kissimmee, Florida since 1994. My interest is vast with a multitude of ideas. I look forward to writing about them and I hope you will join me as I express my views, ideas, and passion for life.
