Your welcome and I do remember you too

Dorothy

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.
Charles Stanley

For the Lord Himself will descend from heaven with a shout, with the voice of an archangel, and with the trumpet of God. And the dead in

Thank you so much. DJ, I remember you from another team I was on. I always appreciated your prayers.

The Lord upholds all who fall, and raises up all who are bowed down. Psalm 145:14

A monk was once asked: What do you do there in the monastery? He replied: We fall and get up, fall and get up, fall and get up again. - Tito Colliander

The Jesus Prayer helps to lift the whole life, body and soul, to a level where . . . the world is sought and known in the beauty of God, not God in the beauty of the world. - Mother Maria of Normanby

My husband died on Thanksgiving 2018. The "Never such pain" applies to both of us. I have been present for a number of deaths, but I had never seen anyone in as much pain as my husband endured at the end of his life. I cared for him for many years, and the pain grew and grew until it was excruciating, so he was ready to go. I rejoice for him that he is now with Christ Jesus and no longer suffering.

Yet I am in the most profound grief I have ever experienced, and it is very painful. There are times when I can laugh at some memory of him, or enjoy time with friends. But then the tears flow again, and again. And I know this will be a long haul, and I have to find a new way of being. Without him. I am just really raw right now.
