April 7th is a very special day. Today we celebrate the birth of one of the most amazing women I have ever met, Simone Audra Harrison. I had the pleasure of meeting Simi 6 years ago in Uganda, Africa. From that day on I knew that I had made a friend for life. She took me under her wing and made me feel right at home. We all considered her a friend but for some of us she was “the mom” of the group.
Beautiful Bekkah, been thinking about you so much!! I just wanted to let you know that you are on my heart and I really pray that you find rest and peace in your heavenly FATHER, at this tender time! So wish that I could be sitting on your bed right now having a chat. -Simi
Simi taught me what it meant to truly trust Jesus, she trusted Him in every step of her life and rarely questioned it. She always encouraged me to see myself through the eyes that Christ sees me, a precious daughter of the most high king. This beautiful women had the pure and true joy of Jesus. She was always smiling, laughing or encouraging someone. And when Simi called you a friend she meant it and truly began to invest in your life.
from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. -Ephesians 4:16
Simi is now in heaven with Jesus, something she always talked about and looked forward to. She was taken by cancer a few years back and as hard as it is for the ones of us that are still here I know she is smiling, laughing and dancing with her Savior. She would remind us all the time how she was just here on earth to do Gods work for the time being and that what she looked forward to most in life was to one day be able to meet her true love.
“Gods plans are always perfect, and HIS ways are not ours (unfortunately)… but I do hope we get to see each other again soon, but if not, we will have eternity together! What a wonderful time we will have together then!! I know that each of you, in your own special way, are radiating and shining the light of Jesus for all of those around you- and so although I want to be selfish, I know that “selflessly” we are all exactly where we are meant to be. My prayer for all of you, is that you would know the LOVE of CHRIST JESUS, a love that goes beyond our understanding.” -Simi
I am so blessed to be able to say that I knew this beautiful women.
Happy Birthday my precious friend. I know you’re enjoying your birthday with Jesus and loving on one of my sweet babies.
