A Request

Please wrap my husband and in-laws in your prayers. Help us to lift Grandma up to Jesus. Help us to lay our sorrow at His feet while we grieve.

I don’t understand why we have lost so much in so short a timespan. All I know is through Him, through His grace and mercy, we can make it through this valley. He will sustain us, even when we feel we can take no more.

I know there is much rejoicing going on in Heaven. Grandma is finally reunited with the love of her life. Calvin has yet another great grandparent in Heaven to teach him about his parents and family. But here, in this earthly life, there is crying. There is so much aching.

Please pray with us:

Heavenly Father,

You know all. You know best. You see what we cannot. Carry us in our weakness, for in our weakness Your strength is made perfect. And as we await the day we will be reunited with You and the ones we have lost (but who have gained in You), continue to bless us with your Grace.

All honor and glory is yours, Father, so we praise you. We praise you in our joys and through our tears, knowing You are the great architect of our lives. Your will be done.
