She's Gone Home

Sweet Mother-in-Law left this earthly life for her heavenly home at 10 this morning. She is with the Savior now and I know she is happy!! I can only imagine! Our hearts are heavy yet we are rejoicing for her! She was blessed with all her children being by her side as she left on her journey home ~ and I was blessed to have such a wonderful second mother. Please keep the Hutchins family in your prayers ~ the next few days will be a very emotional time.

I will be away from the blog for the rest of the week.  Thank you for your prayers.

This & That Tuesday

A new page in my praise journal.

O God,
give me victory over sin through Christ Jesus, my Lord and Savior, in whose name I pray.

. . . that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you (me) the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him.
Ephesians 1:17

Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 37:4

A quote from Dr. Ed Young,
Pastor of Second Baptist Church, Houston, Texas.
“God never sends anybody to hell, it is a choice we make on this earth that decides our destiny.”

I plan to print and add this to my praise journal.

And Jesus said:
Man shall not live by bread alone, but by ever world that proceeds rom the mouth of God.

Today's Journey:
I haven't gone anywhere today, opting to stay home and let the siblings be together with their mom. I spent a lot of Sunday afternoon with her and I feel she knew I was there.  Her room is small, only room for one folding chair and her wheelchair, so we take turns being in the room with her. The small chair is so hard on my back and legs that I can't sit for too long before I become restless and have to get up and walk for a while.  The waiting as she lingers is hard on the family, emotionally as well as physically.  Mr D's youngest brother and sister have been taking turns staying the night, at this point she has family with her at all times.

My hope for you:
Each time you look up in the sky
Or watch the fluffy cloud drift by,
Or feel the sunshine warm and bright,
Or watch the dark night turn to light,
Or hear a bluebird sweetly sing,
Or see the winter turn to spring,
Or touch a leaf or see a tree,
You'll know it's God whispering,
"This is Me."

Until Next Time
Live Life Joyously
