Keeping Josey's Legacy Alive

 It's been several months since this beautiful and extraordinary young lady left this world and stepped into the presence of the Lord. 

I first met Josey when she was 4 years old. I never though I'd meet another little girl with the same "no fear" of life attitude as my daughter, Chelsea.
But I did and I am so blessed to have known her. 
 She would become one of Chelsea's first friends when we moved to Texas and to watch those two together always left me guessing what would they get into next together. 
They were some mischievous, happy, full of life little girls!!

Josey, however can not be describe in just a few mere words. 
She was bigger than life it self. 
Her laughter was contagious and heart felt. 
Her smile would light up the darkest of rooms. 
Her determination was a strength  others would envy and long for in their lives. 
Her spirit was one of sweet, unfailing, unconditional love. 
Her loyalty for those she loved was fierce and without reserve. 
Her honesty was met with brutal truth and wrapped in compassion. 
Her love for God was without compromise. 

 Sadly Josey was taken from this life on February 10th, 2015. 
In a senseless tragic act, as she took her afternoon run, Josey was hit from behind by a driver who due to his impairment of his choice was unaware he had just taken her life. 
Left in a ditch to be found by a loved one, Josey's life ended on that country road. 

The over whelming emotions flooded her small town community as well as the surrounding areas. To have a life taken at such a young vibrant age is unimaginable and heart shattering to say the very least. 
Josey had just begun her life and just as any young woman had many plans to accomplish...
Many dreams to full fill.....
A life of abundance to live. 

I have no answers as to why Josey's life ended the way it did....
Or why she had to go.....
What I do know is our daddy God knew her beginning to her end and welcomed her into  eternity with open arms. 

Psalm 139:16
Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. 

And neither has he left those left behind to mourn....

Proverbs 3:5-6
Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding. 
In all thy ways acknowledge him and he shall direct thy paths. 

Psalm 147:3
He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. 

Josey left behind a legacy of love, strength, honesty, and determination.
She taught so many how to stand for what's right and never back down. 
She instilled perseverance in the heart of her family and friends.
She set the bar high when it came to integrity.
 And a huge purpose in running our race here on earth. 
I believe Josey is now a part of our great cloud of witness; those who have finished their race here on earth and are cheering us on to finish ours. 

Hebrews 12:1-2
Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith......

I believe when the wind blows...
That is her love covering all she loves. 
I believe when the sun rises....
That is her beautiful smile radiating from above. 
I believe in the soft whispers of night fall....
She is sending the comfort of peace to shelter the many broken hearts.
I believe when the storm clouds of life roll in....
Josey is there in the midst, cheering for all.... "Do not give up, Keep going"
And on days when the memories are too hard to bear, she is there calling all to celebrate her life, giving hope and reassurance all will see her again in the Father's house. 

Josey's family and friends have set before them a race to add to her legacy. 
For her death to not be in vain.....
And for others to not suffer the same.
As they stand and fight for "Justice For Josey", they are fighting for stricter laws on hit and run fatalities. 
Please join me in covering the Scott family and friends in prayer as they continue to fight for due justice for their daughter, sister and friend and many others who have been affected. 

Keeping  Josey's Legacy Alive. 

God bless you all~
