Angels Lifting Us Up

"The angel of the Lord encamps around all around those who fear Him and delivers them." - Psalm 34:7

Angels wings are lifting us up right now - "lest our foot dashes the rock." I have no words to write now except to update you that we have crossed over into the valley of the unknown. I had to admit Johnny into the hospice center on Sunbeam road the day before Valentines Day. He took a dramatic turn for the worse. I don't know what will be happening from here. We brought him there to stabilize him. But as I write I honestly don't know if he will be coming home.

My heart is breaking. But I know the Lord is near to the broken hearted. So no matter what the circumstances, His praise shall continually be in my mouth and my soul shall make its boast in the Lord.

We covet your continued prayers. I will continue to update you as I can - but right now winds are swirling around us as we wait for the Lord to lift His hands and calm the stormy seas. We know that good things are always ahead - according to His will - for those who love theLord.

In His love,

Rene

Rene my prayers are with you and Scarlett. I went through this a few years ago with my beloved Grandmother. I prayed every moment that I would get God's lessons from all of the heartache.He taught me so much. When she passed all I could feel was her love it was so warm. It felt like a warm blanket wrapped around my heart. I was so blessed to have her love here on earth and now I feel so blessed to have her wrapped around my heart. My prayers are with you and Scarlett. I found this blog through Scarlett's blog and reading this has been such a blessing. Please continue to write and share with us. Big prayers of love for all of you.
