We lost our beloved Mary Caroline, known to us as “MC,” on October 12th, 2016 to a non-vaccine strain of bacterial meningitis.  MC was SPECIAL and she lived all 362 days of her life with JOY and HAPPINESS, before she victoriously returned home to GOD.

We miss our MC desperately, but in our sorrow we do not ask, “Why?” instead we focus on, “For what purpose?” … And that purpose is to reveal the GLORY of GOD.  Instead of demanding an answer, we choose to TRUST in HIM, recognizing that our circumstances provide an opportunity to GLORIFY GOD by TRUSTING in his unseen purpose.

As we work to TRUST in the “unseen purpose,” and look to continue MC’s legacy of JOY and HAPPINESS, we dedicate the 12th DAY of EVERY MONTH to be a day that we bring JOY to others … just as MC brought JOY to our life!  

So stop what you are doing - for just a minute - on the 12th DAY of EVERY MONTH and do something to serve others.  We challenge you to step outside of yourself and commit an act of kindness towards a stranger, volunteer during your lunch hour, call a friend who is struggling.  All acts of kindness, big or small, will carry on MC’s legacy of spreading JOY and HAPPINESS … all while displaying the GLORY of GOD!

Go out and bring JOY to someone in honor of Mary Caroline Cowden on 12th DAY of EVERY MONTH and #MC12.

May the GOD of HOPE fill you with all JOY and PEACE, as you TRUST in HIM, so that you may overflow with HOPE by the POWER of the HOLY SPIRIT. Romans 15:13
