Bittersweet


Today the world seems a little dimmer. We lost a very important and special person yesterday. Mr. Wade Cowart has touched so many lives in his time here on this earth. We are so very sad at his passing. Once again, words cannot describe. He was certainly one of the most unselfish men I have met. He led the flock at Buford Church of Christ so well. He was not only wise and caring in his leadership, but he had a sense of humor too. I don't think I ever had a conversation with him where I wasn't laughing. He was a great man and will be missed.

I have a story to share...
So a long time ago, Pearson was really little, like maybe 3, and he was trying to tell his parents about something Mr. Wade did or said at church but he couldn't remember his name. Then it hit him, "Mr. Scardy Cat"! See having always heard the name Cowart, Pearson thought people were saying "coward". He couldn't remember the name but knew it was some weird name that people shouldn't want to be called. "Oh yeah! Scardy cat!"

I can't tell you how many times I have heard that story and now I feel like I was there. Mr. Wade loved that story too. He has always been close to our hearts.

But... We can't be too sad for too long. Why? Because Mr. Scardy Cat is in a much much better place. The suffering and pain he was feeling here on Earth have vanished. He is with our Lord and Savior where he belongs. He is home and he is not sad. In fact, he is singing with the angels in heaven and one day we will be with him.
Revelation 21:4 (speaking of the new heaven) "He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away." ESV

We miss you Mr. Scardy Cat, but we are so very thankful that you are not in pain anymore and maybe a little jealous that you get to see Jesus before us.

Love, Mrs. Charlene Maugeri
