15 months ago tonight Mom and Dad met Jesus.
I can’t type that without weeping.
Weeping that comes from great heartache wrapped up in complete joy.
Heartache from losing them so suddenly and not having them here.
Joy that comes from knowing without a shadow of a doubt, that they are with Jesus.
Like the song says, I can only imagine what they experienced. And we all long for the day when we can also see Jesus face to face.
Today, September 9, is also the one year anniversary of my sister’s sobriety.
It was the night of September 8th that she hit rock bottom.
And it was also that night that Jesus was there to rescue her from the pit. He has been with her as she’s fought hard and strong this past year.
Our broken hearts are consumed with joy and gratitude for the love and strength and healing we have found in the Lord these past 15 months.
And we are so proud of you Nellie and we love you so much!!
