Rest...


The clouds gather outside. The wind blows gently. The Sabbath is quietly approaching.
This Sabbath, all of us will rest. Even our dearest Abuelita (Grandma). Her struggle is over. She peacefully breathed her last breath a few hours ago (just a few hours after her son arrived from across the country).
Our hearts rejoice even through the tears that fill our eyes. We serve a God of mercy. He gave a precious treasure to the world for 89 years. And more specifically, gave our home this precious treasure for the past 3 years. 
Her presence has been a benediction. Even with increasing dementia, she has been a catalyst for love in our little world. We will never cease to praise our Heavenly Father for the gift of her life.
We will miss her. But we are thankful that she is resting in Jesus. We will see her on that glorious morning.
“Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints.” Psalm 116:15

  3. "The hour is coming, and now is, when the dead shall hear the voice of the Son of God. For as the Father hath life in himself; so hath he given to the Son to have life in himself...for the hour is coming, in the which all that are in the graves shall hear his voice...Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world."

    Our love to you all and our deepest condolences.
