But they that wait upon the LORD shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.
Isaiah 40:31 / KJV
I found this verse this morning and it was comforting to me! I woke this morning and found myself doing my normal routine, made coffee, fetched the morning news paper, that was late, eek, opened all blinds, even though its still dark out and it felt good!! I need to go and find my Johnanthon a western sport jacket today but my Amanda's boss and friend of ours told me to go and rent just the jacket it would be cheaper than to buy one that my Johnanthon will out grow before he wears it again, great idea! I cooked supper last night for the first time sense my brothers passing, it wasn't nothing big, fried bacon & eggs, biscuits and gravy, and it tasted so good, my stomach isn't allowing anything in it, which really makes me mad cause I just ate some pie that a few of my co~workers brought by,a Lemon Pie, from a fabulous pie shop here in town, but I'm going to try another piece of it for breakfast here in a bit. I just want to Thank all of you for your love and prayers, I have felt so many of them and this morning I felt Gods love with me and I Thanked him again for allowing me to be a sister to this wonderful man I knew as a brother, friend, dad, and counselor. I told Denise from " Life at my house" and "Samaritan Woman Among You"last night on the phone, "The only thing that's keeping me from my brother are clouds" and I thought about that all evening, and it just sounds so easy to get there, just hop on a plane and have it take me as far up as possible, and then hold on to an eagles wings, and when I read this verse I knew it was meant for me......

my heart just aches as i read your words of sadness and heartbreak. i can't even imagine what you are feeling and i just want you to know i am holding you tenderly in my heart and i pray that a sense of peace finds you soon.
i love the comment about only the clouds separating you from your brother. i was once on a flight sitting next to a very small child. as we were taking off, she asked me if we were going to heaven.....i told her i didn't think we were going that high. :) i love that thought....only the clouds separating us from our loves who have left this earth.

i pray that monday is a celebration of your brother's life and that you can smile having known him....

much love ~

Your blog is lovely. Thank you for sharing your heart for the Lord.

The scripture from Isaiah is one of my favorites. It gives me strength when I am weary. It is beautiful truth that brings comfort from God's throne.

I so sorry for the loss of your brother. May the Lord be your strength and peace during this time.

In Christ,

Andrea

Annette I am sort on words but big on a heart full of commpation for you. Oh sweet heart. Would you like to tell us all about him? Tell us if you wish how he touched your life he will tough our lives too. I know letting him go is so hard. Holding onto the memory of the man he was is a treasure shared.

Knowing that those that go one before us ever stand at the right hand of God ever interceding for us both day and knight ...may it remind you that is the holiness of Gods ways Your brother is still being there for you.
