Life on the Beach

"When you are joyous, look deep into your heart and you shall find it is only that which has given you sorrow that is giving you joy. When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight." -Khalil Gibran

After a week of grand children, the C3 Atlanta Encounter Conference and celebration of a life, I present to you in honor of Belinda Ruth Singletary Creath a few moments of peace on the sandy beaches.

DACULA, GA (reprinted from the Gwinnett Daily Post)

Belinda Ruth Singletary Creath

On June 2nd 2013 the world lost a whole lot of love in a little package. Belinda Creath passed away in the early evening surrounded by the love of her daughters, the determined loyalty of her husband, the sweet support of her Momma and cradling her youngest grandson, in awe of it all, stood her humbled friends.

Belinda didn't invent anything. She never started a business, never preached to thousands or built a grand ministry. No Belinda did something far more important, she loved. There was no pretense in Belinda, Who you saw was who she was, and who you saw was a lot of love in a little package.

Belinda's life was not without challenges, but like love she always hoped and always persevered. No matter what she faced, Belinda never quit believing that Jesus was the answer. Even in the midst of personal heartache she shared the heart of God to anyone in need. Watching Belinda leave her earthly body to be with Christ we saw less of a passing away and more of a handing off. Her legacy and her inheritance is not only being given to her childrens children but to everyone she directly and indirectly touched.

Belinda Creath, all 5 foot nothing of her was the biggest person in that room.

She is survived by her husband Mark D. Creath of Dacula, 3 daughters, Laurel Mullikin of Suwannee, Anna Glenn of Lawrenceville, and Caroline Marcarelli of Buford, Mother Charlene Wills of Dacula, sister Rebecca Barrick of Bradenton FL, brother Leonard Singletary of Augusta GA, two son-in laws, David Mullikin and Nick Marcarelli and 6 grandchildren.

A celebration memorial service will be held on Saturday June 8th @ 11 am at C3 church at 1065 Walther Blvd. Lawrenceville GA 30043.

Enjoy the peace of your warm ocean beach Belinda and we look forward to seeing you again one day.
