The Word....

Recently, something our pastor said has really been sticking with me... I'm sure he'd be glad to know I was paying attention! ;o)
 he said,
" What's inside of you comes out when you're squeezed." 
Basically meaning, when things are going rough, how do you react, with God's love or bad temper/words, etc. 
~ Human emotions ~
We all mess up, and yes, you ask God for forgiveness, but that simple little statement has been staying at the front of my mind.

....the joy of the Lord is your strength.
~ Nehemiah 8:10

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God's will is - his good, pleasing and perfect will.
~ Romans 12:2

Have a blessed day my friends

Proverbs 3:5-6

  Trust in the Lord with all your heart
    and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him,
    and he will make your paths straight.

Early Works 'n the New Year

Well we ended 2015 with burying my father in law yesterday.

93 years -- not half bad dad!

Just a little update....

My father in law went to be with the Lord at 1:10a.m. Christmas Eve.

He is now dancing in Heaven with the Lord and his wife.
It's sad for us, but he is dancing and praising and not hurting any more. 

Have a wonderful Christmas my friends and thanks so much for the prayers.

Closer to Christmas......

Christmas is inching closer ... or flying... depending on what's going on in your life. :o)

The last few days we have been in a flurry of hurry up and wait activity as my 93 year old father in law heads closer to being with his departed wife in Heaven. On Jan.5 it will be 5 years since she went to dance with Jesus.  Dad is so ready to be reunited with her!
It's just so hard on us that are left behind.
 Hospice has been called in now. He seems ok one minute and failing the next.

 He has also been having bouts with something I've never heard of before, but my nurse daughter told us about. It's called Sundowner Syndrome. Really threw us for a loop from this gentle God loving man. But they are finally able to combat it a bit with medication.

Please keep our family in your prayers my friends. 
We so appreciate it.  

I want to wish you and yours a most wonderful Christmas!

~ Blessings ~
