A Joy Kay Yow and Kristi Walker Know - And the Lessons Kay Yow Taught Us

EVERY EXPERIENCE GOD GIVES US,
EVERY PERSON HE PUTS IN OUR LIVES
IS THE PERFECT PREPARATION
FOR A FUTURE ONLY HE CAN SEE.
- Corrie Ten Boom


This Corrie Ten Boom quote applies to the ladies gone before us in this community.

Since I just read this for the first time today and it made such an impact, I thought I should make a note of it tonight and share it here.

The News & Observer had a great article on Coach Kay Yow. Here's a quick bullet point worth sharing. Makes me wish I had played NC State Women's Basketball for some of those 38 years.

Lessons From Kay Yow:
Kay Yow left a legacy for playing basketball and how to face life.
(1) Find Time For Those Who Need You;
(2) Never Stop Learning;
(3) Pray For Patience; and
(4) Focus on the Positive.

She was many things. A Christian, patient, positive and prepared. The Legacy lives on.

While we're on legacy's of note, here is a little more personal information about the amazing Kristi Winters Walker. Keep praying those close to her family say they are doing amazingly well all things considered. These ladies know this kind of joy.

"Joy is not the absence of suffering, it is the presence of God."
