ISAIAH 41:10-13

Today I want to welcome you to Spiritual Sunday. If you click on the right side bar button you can visit Charlotte and Ginger and thank them for hosting this weekly post.

My sweet hubby lost his mother on his birthday yesterday. It has been difficult for all of us. But I found comfort reading my bible and here is something I wish to share with you today.

Don't be afraid for I am with you.
Don't be discouraged for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you.
I will hold you up with my victorious right hand.
See all your angry enemies lie there,
confused and humiliated.
Anyone who opposes you will die
and come to nothing.
For I hold you  by your right hand -
I, the Lord your God
And I say to you,
Don't be afraid, I am here to help you.

In death Christ is the light we need to find our way to our eternal home.
I am very grateful that my mother-in-law was a Christian woman.
Her faith sustained her even at the end of a long an difficult illness.
I rejoice today that she is with the Lord.
I am saddened for my husband because like me
he no longer has any earthly parents.
Thank you for allowing me to share with all of you today.
I am re posting a picture of  my hubby with his precious mom. Life is a gentle reminder that Christ is the light we need to follow so one day we too can join Him in eternal peace.

Aw Anne I am so sorry for you and your family's loss. I know your mother in law is probably cuttin' the rug with Jesus right now, but it still hurts when they leave us here behind. I believe that we as humans Christian or not have to grieve it's a natural part of life and it helps to get through these difficult times. You are in my thoughts and prayers. Well missy I FINALLY mailed your winning package out today you should have it wednesday or thursday. I put some extra goodies in there instead of the chocolate cuz I 'm pretty sure it would have melted in the mail truck! Hope that's ok I am so sorry it took me so long I am usually good about these things but this year has been a wild ride:) Take care sweet Anne!

Good Morning Anne and Avery Sweet Friends...
May God be with you during this difficult time in your lives and may you feel the comfort of the angels I am sending to hold you up in prayer during this time. Your sweet Moma has graduated to heaven and she walks the streets of gold today. No more pain.

How fitting the day she brought you into the world Avery, she was rewarded on this day, by being called home to be with our Heavenly Father. She was a loving Moma to you, and has given you many memories to last you the rest of your lifetime. You will carry her always in your heart sweet friend.

I will be sending many prayers for you both and your family. I feel so blessed to have known your sweet Moma through this blog.

Many hugs and so much love to you both, Sherry

I am so sad for your hubby on the loss of his precious mom - she looked like such a nice person.

I love that Bible verse - it says it all doesn't it?

I'll keep you in my prayers.

The circle of life is so pronounced when your husband's mother died on his birthday.

She was a striking looking woman - may she rest peacefully.
