Healed Forever with Jesus
At 2:30 today Jessica entered into her rest and perfect healing. It was a privilege to watch her as she saw glimpses of heaven, "it is pretty", "its so beautiful", "its too bright". She raised her weak little arms in worship and smiled her last smile here on earth.
The pain and suffering were so great last night and today. With Cory, Mark and Kayla and a team of pastors we encouraged her, urged her to go and be free.....and she even said, "I'm trying"... in her weakened state.:)..and continued being polite to everyone. Her doctor said she was the politest patient she'd ever known. And the toughest. (We said, if you only knew!) Goodbye for now, my baby angel girl/best friend......
There is nothing in all the world like being a mom. I have 5 children by birth and 2 step children. These blogs are about the journeys I have taken with 2 of them. To be a parent without faith is like swimming without arms. Knowing my Saviour loves my children more than I ever could, makes saying goodbye or facing the challenges they present much less of a weight. In Him, I can wait, trust, listen and lean. Proverbs 3:5,6. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge HIM and He will direct your paths. Amen!
