Merry Christmas

We are in the presence of family - just like so many tonight! We went to the candle light service at my parent's church and surprisingly enough - I just couldn't hardly make it through the service. I am missing my sweet soulmate so much - but at the same time am clinging tightly to my Saviour. I think and pray for you all and that you have a very Christlike Christmas - remembering that without Christ coming to live as a man we would have NO hope. I long for the world that I was made for and can't wait til I am able to worship in perfection at the feet of my Savior and Father.

I was praying for you during our Christmas Eve service. I can't imagine how you all are holding up during this time, but I will continue to pray for God's peace and comfort for you and your kiddos.

You all have been constantly on my heart. I was making muffins for breakfast and thought I'd check the computer before things get really going this morning... I was so encouraged to see your post. It makes my heart break and sing all at once. This has truly been a bittersweet experience for us, hasn't it... but the Word became flesh that we might have life. And that life is the light of men!

Give yourself and those kids a big hug for us. Merry Christmas!!

We miss you and the cherubs but are so glad you can have this time with your other family.
I know we still weep for our loss, so I guess it is normal. I have realized that while we have this deep inner peace, there is also this deep inner hurt that is always hovering near the surface also.
Six-bits and Romo are certainly on the move--like a couple of gymnastics performers. Just watching them makes me feel I've had a workout also.
We are keeping careful watch over them.
We love you all!

First- Merry Christmas. We miss you guys.

And Second- We miss your sweet soulmate too. But we know where he is and we'll be able to see him again one day when our work here on earth is done.

I'm thinking of you a lot, and praying for you all. I try to imagine being in your shoes...I really think about it a lot and it seems unbearable. I thank God that He is upholding you, that His arms are around you all. Praying continually for God to comfort you. Love, Denise

I think these are the seasons that will stretch us most. They hold those most comforting memories, now set along side the ACHE. This is the eternity that is in our hearts, that longing for completion and rest. Some day we will enter into that rest

You inspire me

Gods best to you

"just hardly couldn't make it through" ... I love how you put words to your feelings and expressions. Reading your words makes me feel like i am hearing your voice...almost! I know there were many, many souls here on earth that lifted you all up in their prayers over the past week. I know that you never leave my thoughts and prayers.
Much love and Merry Christmas...Praise be to God the Father who spared not even his only Son for my sake; for your sake; for our sake. Blessed be the name of the LORD, both now and forever, AMEN!
