Joy!



September 5, 2017



I was not the only one who noticed!

Two weekends ago we celebrated my brother-in-law, Angelo, at a memorial service in California.

As a former marine the service began with an Honor Guard from the Marine Corps. The folding and presenting of the flag were very tearful moments. Angelo’s sister, Annette, sang a duet (How Great Is Our God) with Laurie – it was beautiful. You would never have known that they never had time to rehearse.

Even the error in the flow of the program was beautiful. Instead of a video of an Angelo memory, what we saw was a video of the Mighty Sparrow – for those of you who don’t know, he’s from Trinidad and sings calypsoes.

We shed tears, especially listening to his nephew, Robert and young friend, Cameron share their memories.

Denise got up to sing “I Can Only Imagine” … and Cheryl danced. We were emotional, she was emotional… but in the midst of this… the song goes…

‘To be surrounded by your glory
What will my heart feel
Will I dance for you Jesus
Or in awe of you be still…”

Cheryl is using sign language while dancing… I look at her hands and body. But in the midst of this… I looked at her face and saw pure JOY! She was dancing for her Angel in heaven. She tells me she was not aware of her it. Angelo was the love of her life and she misses him, but our God is the ultimate comforter. There is nothing more comforting that thinking of Angelo sleeping IN Jesus! Can you imagine, in all of His Glory, being encased and surrounded by Him. Thank you Jesus! Please keep Cheryl in prayer.

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so God will bring with Him those who sleep in Jesus - 1 Thessalonians 4:14

  Wait!       February 7,

into my system knocked me over for a full day and a half – I was sick!   Still, I was now excited to see my doctor a
