A couple months ago when I... was driving to pick up AJ, I heard a song called "Home." Hearing the words, I started crying, as it gave me such peace and hope, my heart was full knowing exactly where my daughter was, what she was experiencing: "...Every tear will be wiped away. Every sorrow and sin erased. We'll dance on seas of amazing grace. In Heaven. In Heaven. I'm goin' home. Where the streets are golden. Every chain is broken..." If you haven't listened to it, please do; and it's a great video too:
Home - with a capital - H -. This is where our daughter is. And I will someday be with her too. As this video shows, each of us has an 'hour' glass. Avelyn's was a '16 day glass.' So far mine has been a '29 year (+ 10 😂) glass...and counting.' What is yours? Are you afraid for when yours runs out? I hope not...but if you are, please, PLEASE do something about it. Talk to me. Please.
Since Avelyn passed away, my faith has grown stronger. So thankful for this, for because of this, I KNOW where she is. Children who do not yet know right from wrong are given 'exceptional mercy' and are granted an automatic 'ticket' to heaven. For us though - for the rest of us here, we do know right from wrong. Therefore, we are able to make a choice. We need to make a choice - for Jesus - in order to meet the loved ones ahead of us - who have made that choice and gone to heaven. We need to make that choice so we can be "in Your open arms" - in Jesus' arms. Because of God's gift to children of 'exceptional mercy,' Avelyn has met Jesus, and I'm so thankful I will too; and I will meet her - HEALED - for the first time, when my 'hour glass' is done.
I'm not afraid to die. Now, don't get me wrong, I want to be here to raise my children with my husband and love on my loved ones and share my faith with as many people as possible and try to Let My Light Shine. But when God calls me, I'll be ready. I have no doubt where I'm going. I pray each of you is ready too, when your hour glass reaches it's last grain of salt. Lots of Love & Hugs friends. ❤️💛💖🌦️☀
Happy heavenly birthday sweet girl.
