A beginning and an end

My mom was greeted by the open arms of our loving Savior at 7:20 this evening. A peace came over her and she was calm as she was surrounded by all her children and grandchildren when her life with us here on earth came to an end and her life in eternity with our Heavenly Father began. Thank you all for your prayers, we all truly appreciate it.

Oh, Misty, my heart goes out to you! Isn't it strange that grief and relief are so mixed up together?

What a blessing for you to have had this time with her. God's timing is perfect, and His mercy is deep (even letting her go to the beach that one time recently that you wrote about was very special).

We will pray for all of you in the days to come. Please let us know if there is anything we can do for you! Will Chris be able to go to NJ to be with you?

Sending you a big hug across the miles...

Misty, My heart is with you, as well. This has been quite a journey for you and your mom and your whole family. What a blessing for you to be with her at the end and to witness her transition from this life to the next. What a blessing for you to witness her faith in Jesus as her Savior and the lover of her soul.

"Jesus, lover of my soul,let me to thy bosom fly.
While the nearer waters roll, while the tempest still is high.
Hide me, oh, my Savior, hide,
'Til the storm of life is past.
Safe into the haven guide,
O receive my soul at last."

I am praying for you and loving you across the miles.
