No Wonder I Love You

This singing kitty has nothing to do with my blog post today; I just think he’s adorable. If you don't like cats, oh well.


I will be mostly off-line for the next week while traveling to CA and back for my brother’s memorial service.

I treasure your prayers for our trip there and back—three flights each way (my mom lives in a very remote part of No. California)—and our time with Mom.



Thank you, dear friends, for your love, support, and kindness these last weeks. I have felt the prayers on our behalf, and they have helped so much. Is it any wonder I love you?

Has a one you loved passed from your arms to the arms of Jesus? What or whom helped you the most during your time of anguish?

  5. Jeanette:
    Please know that you are in my prayers. When Hubby's sister died last June, we were held up by God's praying people. When my dad died in June 2009, the same was true.

  7. My thoughts and prayers are with you. It was the fact that people took the time to go to the viewings and the few cards I received that touched me most when I lost my parents. I hope knowing we love you will help.
    The sweet kitty makes my world a little brighter.

  8. I am sad for your loss. When I lost my mom 6 years ago, the book, "A Grace Disguised" by Jerry Sittzer was a huge comfort. I read it many times.

    Fondly,
    Glenda

  10. A super duper big hug (and I'm not a hugger, but you deserve one!) and lots of prayers that the Lord will grant to you His unfathomable peace and grace.

  12. When my sister was killed at age 17, I clung to GOD...HE used Christian contemporary music to sooth my soul. Specifically the song "The Warrior Is A Child" by Twila Paris. This song said "everything" and more. I still love it and smile when I hear it.

    I have an award for you at arise 2 write. It is the second post down.

    I have a prayer request at All Gods Creatures.

    Blessings,
    andrea
