It’s a date that will stick with me the rest of my life.

{And as Hillari and Ashleigh know…that’s a true statement!}


It’s the day that Heather…sweet, sweet Heather…went home to be with our Lord and Savior.  She woke up from earthly sleep in the presence of her Creator.  There’s no more pain.  There is no more physical suffering.  She can talk once again!  {And I’m sure she’s enjoying that!}  She can sing clear praises to God!  She can walk, and dance, and see her Mother, and experience firsthand the fullness of God’s riches.


I’m sad for me.  I’m happy for her.  I’m a bit jealous!

And while I humanly feel the sadness of temporary separation, I feel great joy, peace, and hope in knowing that I WILL see her again.

In Heaven.


And it’s not God’s fault that I expected her to live to 80.

    This is such a lovely thought – so sorry for your loss. Yet I love the touch of humour and the last line – that is brilliant!! Praying that you all find peace and God’s strength in the next few days especially. Tx
