Thank you for your thoughts and prayers



Thank you to each of you who has lifted us up in prayers this past week. My father-in-law passed away peacefully this morning, and while we're saddened to no longer have him physically with us, we're grateful for God's mercy for a blessedly short time of suffering. Our dear "Pop" (pictured at a birthday celebration for our twin grandgirl's 1st birthday and at his own 86th birthday last spring)has joined the saints and angels now celebrating his heavenly "birthday".

Ever grateful for your sweet words of encouragement and friendship,

Martha

  21. Martha, My sympathies to you about the loss of your love one. I'm very sorry.

    I don't mean to be insensitive to the nature of your post by mentioning the box of chocolates you won as a runner up on guessing 'Who Are These People' over on my blog HomeHaven, but didn't see an email address to use. I have a box waiting for you that I will mail you if you send me a comment with your address. I won't publish your address.

    God bless,
    d
