amandaHow we remember Amanda ...

Few souls are truly brave.
Bravery is a characteristic that governed Amanda's life.
She had a stoicism that defied understanding.
She did not shrink from duty.
Or withdraw from life because of her disease.
She faced each day bravely.

The hearts of Jesse's eight sons were exposed for all to see at the morning assembly on 18 June. You will remember how God sent Samuel to anoint one of Jesse's sons as the future King of Israel. Each son had a heart that did not please God although they may have looked like candidates for royal positions. God told Samuel that He looks at the heart of the man and not the outward appearance. David was chosen because his heart was pure and pleasing to God.

The heart appearance is what God sees and not the outward appearance visible to man.
