"He has had at least 18 months of complications from Kidney failure and a heart procedure required before a kidney transplant. He fought hard, but his lungs kept collapsing, leaving him weak."   Marcia Avery

How fitting that today's Open Windows Devotional is titled "Fighting The Good Fight". Our precious friend, Lyndal Chrisman, surely did just that! Today he is in the presence of Jesus hearing, "Well done my good and faithful servant!" Lyndal has struggled with life for a long time now, but he kept his faith strong and witnessed to any he could throughout his illness. Praise God for a life well lived.

Paul was facing his own death when he wrote these words to Timothy. 
2 Tim
othy 4:7 "I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith."

Paul did not let his daily battles be an excuse for withdrawing from the race. My prayer is that we will be able to say the same when our time comes to "promote" to our heavenly home.

Lyndal Curtis Chrisman peacefully promoted to Heaven while in his home in Sugar Land, Texas the morning of November 1, 2016.  He was resting in bed, holding the hand of his wife and best friend, Barbara Chrisman.  They were each other’s favorite person.  She was his soul mate, kidney donor, cheerleader, nurse, business partner, confidante, and much much more and he loved her deeply.

He met Barbara at Heights First Baptist Church while on R&R leave from the Vietnam War.  When his tour was over in 1971, they started dating when she was 17 and he was 22; they were married in October 1972 and bought their first home the next year.  They had three boys and three granddaughters of whom they are all extremely proud. When they became grandparents, they took the names Babs & Pops.  They were members of South Main Baptist Church for 10+ years, West University Baptist Church for 25+ years, and recently joined the Epicenter Church in Sugar Land where they started working again with the children. 

Lyndal joined his parents Carl & Mary Chrisman and his granddaughter Dylan Chrisman, among others. Lyndal is survived by his wife Barbara Chrisman, son Kirk Chrisman and wife Angie Chrisman, son Kyle Chrisman and wife Laura Klingaman Chrisman, son Kent Chrisman and fiancé Nicole Michel, and granddaughters Riley and Hannah Chrisman, brother Darrell Chrisman and wife Cindy Chrisman.  

Lyndal was born on March 1st, 1949 at Memorial Hospital in Houston, Texas.  He graduated from Waltrip High School, class of '67.  He was a University of Houston Cougar. He proudly served as a soldier and photographer in the Vietnam War in the Army’s 1st Cavalry Division.  He worked in the Oil & Gas industry for 40 years and retired from Southwestern Energy Company after 10 years.

Lyndal enjoyed music of all kinds from Janis Joplin to the Gaithers.  He loved to sing and dance and could really cut a rug (a passion he and Barbara both shared).

Lyndal loved his Lord Jesus Christ and his family more than anything.  He was most proud and content when they were eating together, worshipping together, and investing time together as a family.

A Celebration Gathering will be held at West University Baptist Church on Saturday, November 5, 2016 @ 10:00 a.m. with reception following.  The address is 6218 Auden, Houston, TX 77005.
