I haven't blogged because I haven't been sure how to pick up where I left off. Many of you know Terry's mom passed away on 6/12/13.We are devastated. She was a wonderful mother in law to me and such a wonderful grandmother to Madeline. We miss her so much and life truly will never be the same without her.
Many people say that Christians use our "religion" as a crutch when bad things happen in our lives. As my Dad said, sometimes your faith isn't just your crutch to lean on, it becomes your wheelchair. A place to fall when you can't stand. I truly don't know how people make it through this hard life without faith and a hope of eternal life.
That being said, we received an outpouring of love that I can't describe. Obviously, we were in shock when this happened and our friends here came over, took care of business for us, and saw to it that we were on the first flight out of here as a family. From there it was flowers, phone calls, cards, food, everything down to toilet paper was delivered to Terry's dad's house from our friends and family. Grateful doesn't adequately describe our hearts. We are filled with gratitude and surrounded by love.
We appreciate your love and continue to covet your prayers.
And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.
