My family has had a big loss today. My mother passed away at 4:45p. She had an extremely rough night last night, so this morning my family gathered and prayed over her while listening to worship music. God answered our prayer and she relaxed and rested peacefully to the end. My brother went to the store and bought a CD that had my parent's song on it. They danced to Vince Gill's "Just the Two of Us" at their 50th anniversary party so we played that song for her a couple of times. My parents loved to dance so we encouraged her to go to heaven and dance. After the song was over the priest showed up and said the last rights and we all prayed. Quickly there after she passed away peacefully. We feel like my dad came and got her and they were reunited tonight. Although we are glad they are both together words can not express how much we will miss them. After discussing it with my family we decided I should go to my chemo appointment tomorrow. Please continue to pray that chemo works and for my family as the week continues.
"Brothers, we do not want you to be ignorant about those who fall asleep, or to grieve like the rest of men, who have no hope. 14We believe that Jesus died and rose again and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him." 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
