Life’s Twists and Turns

We will be leaving in about 40 minutes to head to the airport for a trip to New York. We had no idea when this day began that we would be flying out of state, but my husband’s mom who is 81 and in the hospital is not doing very well.  You know what? Nothing ever takes God by surprise, and we’re praying for His will to be done in all of this.

  1. Thank you all very much for your prayers and support. My mother-in-law passed away yesterday afternoon around 3:30. We’re so thankful that we were able to make it out before that time to see her. This is a difficult time for the family, but I know God will see us through. Again, thanks so much for your prayers and thoughtfulness.

  2. Sis: We are grieving with you all. Irene was a special lady, and we are sorry she is gone. You are all in our thoughts and prayers daily. We love you and we’re praying God will carry you through this difficult time.


    Thanks, sis. Irene really thought a lot of you and Mike too. It’s hard to believe she is gone. We are staying at her house while we’re out here, and it’s just really strange to not have her close by. Your prayers are really appreciated.

  3. Praying for you and your family. I know this is a hard time for you. My husband lost his mother and brother in 2008. Praying for a safe trip and God’s blessings.

    Thank you so much for your prayers.

  4. Carol, I’m so sorry for your loss. Your whole family is in my prayers.

    Thanks for your prayers, Helen. I know tomorrow will be somewhat difficult, since we will be having the viewing. The funeral will be on Monday.

  5. Carol and Pete and kids,

    We are heartbroken to hear that Irene is gone. Somehow with John’s 40th birthday, Ladies Retreat and Mother’s Day . . . no one passed the news out to us. Wish we would have known to pray.

    May Jesus wrap His Everlasting arms around you and hold you tight in this time of sorrow.

    All our loving prayers,
    John and Kristin and kiddos

  6. Carol:

    Mom & I too share in the grief. I’ve posted 2 poems on my blog (something I haven’t done in a long time) that ministered to me that I hope will minister to others during times of grief. You’ll have to let me know what you think when you get the chance. Prayers for your time in NY, the return trip, and the time after that.

  7. Carol,

    I’m so so sorry for your loss. Even though we know our loved ones are in a better place, it’s still difficult to not have them here.

    you’re in my thoughts and prayers.
    Thank you, Holly.
