Phenomenal Woman

Posted by Unknown Sunday, July 26, 2009

We will celebrate the life of Ms. Effie Sarah James on Thursday, July 30, 2009. She lived 104 years with vigor and zest. Her wisdom and experiences caused her to be sought out for advice and counsel. She had a keen mind and an ability to remember the details of life, much like a Griot. Born October 15, 1904, she was an eye witness to two world wars, the great depression, the civil rights movement, the assasinations of key national leaders, Korean, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan conflicts, the Lindenburg, Sputnik, Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr., and President Barrack Obama. What a wonderful time period for change and improvement! She was an eye witness to it all.

During a time when youth people are dying too soon, it is uplifting to know that in our midst are elders whose character stand the test of time and whose service provides all an example of what it means to be a Christian.

The old song would say, "that I promised him that I would serve him until I die."

Ms. Effie Sarah James honored her promise and now she has earned her reward.
