“In your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” (Psalm 16:11)
Steven and I are grieving the loss of someone very close to us last night.
There will not be posts tonight or Monday, as we make arrangements for the celebration of life.
We appreciate your prayers at this time.
Have a blessed Easter, remembering that Jesus, in His infinite love and mercy, died so that we may take part in the glorious paradise of Heaven, where there is no more suffering, no more pain, only comfort in the arms of Our Savior.
Thank you for understanding.

I’m so sorry! There are no words that can comfort a grieving heart truly, as much as I wish there were. But my thoughts, my love, and prayers to the One who can, are with you. May they wrap around you and hold you like a warm embrace as you walk through this journey of sorrow.
This sorrow Belongs to those who will miss their presence here, in your days, your moments of life. This place of woe became a little bit darker with the absence of their light…But OH the joy of heaven! They’ve finally made it home, unshackled of this fragile flesh, bereft of sickness, sorrow, pain…into the arms of love at last.

I’m not much for words at times like this, but I am reminded of a poem..
“God looked around his Garden and found an empty place.
He then looked down upon his earth and saw your loving face.
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest.
His Garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best.
As the days come and go and the world moves on,
I know you’re still here, you’ll never be gone.
On the morn the Angel came and took your hand,
We cried as you left for an unknown land.
But Heaven rejoiced as you came into sight,
For your soul was a diamond, shining so bright!”
My most sincere condolences to you and Stephen.
Thank you so much, my friend. Gosh – it is remarkable that you shared this, because it is the poem that we put on the back of Steven’s father’s prayer card for the wake and funeral. It has brought him, and his whole family so much comfort during this intensely difficult time. I will share that with him, and he will think it is a hug from God that you also shared it. Hugs and love xox
I believe I shared it on Twitter with you as well.
I had a similar piece experience to what you are going through. https://julxrp.wordpress.com/2019/06/04/farewell-to-dear-friend/
