With Jesus

Today at 4:30 a.m. mom went home to be with the Lord. We are all grieving and hurting, but we know that our precious mom is not hurting and sitting at Jesus' feet.

Yesterday, my sister in law sent a care package to mom. She had a note with lots of love. Amber had also included a beautiful tiara that sparkled and shone. We put it on her head and spoke the Word to her:

James 1:12 Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, for once he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

Although this crown was earthly she is now wearing her heavenly crown...for she is a princess, child of the king.

She will be missed greatly...but we will see her again.

We love you, mom.

You have left an eternal legacy.
