Walking Each Other Home

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for,
the evidence of things not seen.
Hebrews 11:1

God is good. My family and I believe that still after two of our family members went to be with the Lord this week. My aunt passed suddenly and unexpectedly last weekend, and my uncle, her husband, followed this morning.

Their marriage spanned nearly 63 years, a love story that began when a girl fell in love with the boy next door. It ended, on this earth, when she was on her way to the nursing home to visit him. A sudden headache, and God called her home.

We are sad and yet blessed knowing that they are well and together again in Heaven.

Today, I am a writer lost for words. This video by Mark Schultz says it all.

I, also, am sorry for your losses. The video makes eyes misty.
I will pray for God to walk you and your family through this time of loss.

Thank you everyone. My cousins need prayer for strength during this next week as they face the funerals of both parents.

Dear Jean-- Death is so hard on us -- those left behind. I'm so very sorry for the loss of those you loved so. And of those who loved each other so. Take care. J

By Max Lucado, Published by Thomas Nelson
Max Lucado has a unique way with words, and his children's book Hermie A Common Caterpillar is no exception. With simple text and bright, watercolor illustrations, the story of Hermie unfolds.

Hermie wonders why he looks and feels so common. Whenever he asks God why, God simply answers, "I'm not finished with you yet." Then, one day, Hermie feels very tired. He gets into his cozy, leafy bed, and he sleeps. And while Hermie sleeps a transformation takes place. When he wakes up, Hermie discovers that God has done something grand. You can guess what it is. Every caterpillar that lives to adulthood knows the end of the story.

Parents, please share this book and its powerful message with your children. We are all special because God loves us, and He has a unique purpose for our lives. Whenever we slump into feeling ordinary, we know that we have hope because . . .God isn't finished with us yet!
