I'm Back....and I've REALLY Missed You All!!!!!

Hey friends!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you all for your emails and comments!!!! You will never know how much your prayers have WORKED in so many ways!!!!

Dirk's grandpa did pass away last Thursday, February 19th. He is a happier man now that he's met his Maker face-to-face. He was such a precious man and a huge part of our lives. We will miss him tremendously.

There's still much to do with his affairs, but we're relying completely on the Lord to pave the way with it all in the days to come!

Well, I must keep this short because I'm off to making my rounds to visit each of you tonight! WOW! I am sure I have missed ALOT! The blogging world just doesn't stop for ya, huh?

You all are the best! I truly, truly, truly mean it!

Thanks so much for your friendship!

Hi girl! I'm glad you are OK. I've thought about you several times. Once I ran in here to make sure you hadn't disappeared from my blog list!

I'm sorry about Grandpa.

Be sure to check out my blog. I'm having a contest, and it's the kind that sounds like it's "right up your alley." ;o)

Hi, sweetie pie! I'm so glad you're back because I've missed YOU!

I'm so sorry for you loss, but I'm glad that he's gone home to be with Jesus. As my cousin (a Presbyterian minister) said at my mother's funeral, Christians weep, and that's okay. Jesus also wept. But we don't weep as those who have no hope because our hope is in the Lord! Praise Jesus!

Sending you GREAT BIG HUGS and much, much love...

XO,

Sheila :-)

Daphine,

I feel terrible for not being more in touch, but I knew things were hectic and I didn't want to bother you guys. Lisa did tell me last week about Dirk's grandfather and you guys have been in my thoughts and prayers. I do hope you can still make it for the conference this Saturday. I think the day would do you a lot of good. After all you've been going through, a day of feeding your spirit would be tremendous. Know that I love you and can't wait to see you and hug your neck. Please pass along my condolences to Dirk. Lots of love...Jennifer.

To be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord! This is so true for him right now!!
