"What kind of greedy am I?"
This question haunted Ann B. Davis ("Alice" on the Brady Bunch) during the height of her television fame.
She'd won the coveted Emmy, had a lovely Hollywood home,* and money to buy anything she wanted. But she felt empty.
That's when Davis discovered that only Jesus could satisfy: "I had it all," she'd smile, "but God made me a better offer."
Ann stayed in our home in 1984 when she shared her story with our military wives fellowship.
She spoke about the common misunderstanding that career, wealth or fame can make us happy. She knew from experience that only Jesus gives abundant life (John 10:10).
Ann's humble attitude and cheerful spirit made her a joy to be around.
"God has no taste!" she would laugh, "He loves everybody. We are stuck with the love of the Creator of the Universe!"
Ann went to see her Creator face-to-face on Sunday, June 1, 2014.
*Ann gave up her home to live in an Episcopalian community for most of her life. She was 88 when she died.
