Sadness in the midst of the wonderous holiday

Last year, 2007, on Christmas morning Ben's grandpa passed away. I found something very poetic in the fact that the day we celebrate Jesus coming to earth, John was called Home. He was able to spend Christmas day singing praises to his Lord. It also snowed that day. It did not stick but the kids were able to run outside and catch snow on their tongues.

Last night as it started to snow, and as Gordon and Martha took a time out from being with Ben's grandma at the hospital to come see the Christmas program, Ben's grandma left her sick and tired body and entered into eternity with her Savior.

So as we enter into another Christmas week the Wilson's will once again be dealing with death. I ask you to pray for them. Specifically Gordon as he has lost two parents in less then a year at one of the most wonderful times of the year. Also pray for the others grieving her loss and for the ones that watch their loved ones go through this process once again. Also with this weather pray that everyone arrives here safely as they come to say goodbye.

Oh. Such sad news. They are singing his praises this Christmas together!! Oh what peace and joy they must feel.

Sending you so many prayers. It is a hard time of year if you've lost anyone, yet to lose them right this week. My heart ackes for his Dad.

Three years ago as Daniel and Kim and I were getting a Christmas tree I got a phone call telling me my Grandmother passed away. I know the feeling the Wilson family is experiencing. Our theme for the funeral was that she was spening Christmas with Jesus. Its so hard losing a loved one during the holidays. I will be praying for you all!
