Shelli was threatened with death before she could live out the first half of her life. Colon cancer was the culprit, and it wasn’t giving up.
You know who else wouldn’t give up? Shelli. She didn’t let death bring her down and her smile was never wiped away. While she holds the title for many wonderful qualties such as, nurturing mother, beautiful wife, profound teacher, queen of smiles, and beloved friend, the greatest of them all was her belief in a miracle. I still believe that the Sellars family is in for a great awakening, and even though Shelli has passed before the prophesy of her life ending at 85, God still has something in store.
I believe that life doesn’t end in Heaven. I believe that Shelli’s 85th year on Earth will have significance even though she is no longer with us physically.
In 2052, we will have a taste of Shelli’s spirit and I don’t think it will be easy to ignore. She will never be forgotten and neither will her persistence. Her family has a dream for their future and their tragic loss will not stop them from receiving God’s love or the touch of their loving mother’s spirit.
I encourage anyone who is reading this blog, to understand how important it is to celebrate a life, rather than to mourn over the loss.
I love you Shelli, and I hope Heaven is as extravagant as you are.
Infinite blessings to your family, and may God’s peace forever be the comfort of your soul.
