Our Heavenly Father, we humbly bow to Your will. Your wisdom is greater than ours. You understand how sad are our hearts and how deep is our grief. We long for the touch of a vanished hand and the sound of a voice that is stilled. But You are merciful and kind. You will comfort our wounded hearts. Thank You for Your Son Jesus Christ who gave us the hope that we shall meet our dear one again in heaven where there is no separation anymore. Wipe away all tears from our eyes. Thank You, Lord, for understanding so well our poor human hearts and for letting us lean on You. Amen. ~Norman Vincent Peale~ Sometimes God gives us the greatest gifts through sadness and pain. What a blessing it was to have spent the last few months with Jo and caring for her. It was as if I was seeing Mama again. They were so much alike! There were days with laughter and days with tears. Junior and Robin, Jack and Sherri, thank you for asking me to help care for Jo. It blessed me more than ya'll will ever know. I love ya'll, Debbie
