From Carlotta Luster: In 2008, James’ friendship with Agnes started well before I came in the picture. She would stop by and come inside hanging out in the living room with all of his roommates. Often times she would scrub their kitchen down. The woman was a neat freak and liked things clean. I came into the picture in 2012. The first time I met her I was dating James and trying to impress him with my cooking skills. She was there when I pulled into his driveway. I asked her “do you want to eat with us?” I was sure she would be impressed as well. After dinner I asked if she liked my meal and she looked at me and with a weird face and a shrug she said “it’s ok?” I’ll never forget thinking this lady is the most honest person I’ve ever met!!
She has been there through both pregnancies with Jacob and Jonathan. I remember so vividly when I was VERY pregnant with Jacob. I had gone on a walk with James and Jonathan and sprang my ankle pretty badly. When we got home she was on our porch and I was at this point sobbing with pain. James got me on the couch. She sat by my side and prayed over my foot. Then she asked for lotion and started rubbing my other foot saying “you will be ok, it’s ok”. In that moment I knew that our family wasn’t placed in agnes’ life to solely serve her, we were placed in hers so that she could minister to us. What a humbling, sweet lesson that was.
She was the grandmother that I haven’t had in years due to losing all of my grandparents back in the 90’s. She was a great grandparent to our boys. We learned about another culture, she taught Greek to us often, singing Greek hymns over our meals.
When I think of you Agnes, I will always remember Gods faithfulness. You never went without saying Jesus’ name on your tongue. And he ALWAYS provided for you when we turned another corner wondering, “how will we pay for this, Father?” Jesus provided for the small AND big things every.single.time.
You are free. You are whole. You are with our maker. I look forward to seeing you again my beloved.
