Annie (Mae ) Lamb-Gore
Knowing, Believing and Living
For 90 years, 1 month, and 1 day Annie lived a life of being lovely and being loved. And we all know she was so lovely because of that love.
Through the years it was abundantly clear that she knew, she believed, and she lived, as a child of God.
She knew she was loved as a daughter of the king, with her head held high and certainty in her stride.
She believed that she was empowered because He that was within her was greater than anything that is in the world.
She lived with a calm confidence to see good days whether or not it was apparent at the time.
And her journey was not an easy one. She endured some of the toughest blows life can land. But Annie would famously always rise. She rose as a daughter, a mother, a sister, and a friend to all of us. And she continues to rise with a defiant joy because her God shows her His goodness each morning. Psalm 143:8
Hers is a life that gives us all hope. May we honor her legacy of strength as she abided as a branch on God’s vine. John 15:4
May we honor her history of thoughtful consideration in decision making knowing all things permissible but not profitable. 1 Corinthians 10:23
May we honor that she knew she was a child of God both fearfully and wonderfully made. Psalm 139:14
May we honor that she believed that joy comes in the morning. Psalm 30:5
And may we honor that she lived like she had none to fear because the Lord was her light and salvation. Psalms 27:1
Annie was a woman as strong as she was lovely, and I can only hope and pray that we can carry the torch of light she left us with, with as much grace and flair she did.
