Hi Friend.... the joy of the Lord to YOU !

This page was created for my very good friend and prayer partner, Josh, in memory of his step-grandmother, Elle, who passed away suddenly this past week.  As I am writing this, he is with his friends and family as they lay her to rest.  They are so much in my prayers and I ask that God give each one the comfort and peace that they need during this difficult time.

Elle was more than just a grandmother by marriage to Josh.  Elle was the one who led Josh to the Lord and because of that there will always be a close bond between them.  That is just something you never forget.   It was the beginning of a deep love for Christ that would be birthed in Josh and many other's lives have been touched because of the faithfulness of Elle to share the gospel of Christ with Josh.  Each life he touches, each person he gives hope to through Christ, each life that is changed through his prayers .... Elle will have had a part in also. She was Josh's friend and prayer partner and I know that this is a bittersweet time for him.  His head knows that she is in a better place... walking the streets of glory with her Lord... but his heart will still miss her.  I pray that the Lord will bring to Josh's remembrance the good times that he and Elle shared and that he will rejoice in knowing that one day they will be reunited again.

I understand Josh's feelings and all that he is going through... just as I know that many of you do too.  Today is also the day that my Mom passed away... 22 years ago.  This is the year that marks the fact that I have been without her as long as I had her.  But like Josh.. I too can look forward to the day when she and I will be with Jesus in Heaven forever.  My oh my.. what a day that will be too !!

For those of you who do not know the Lord.. who have never asked Him into your life as your Lord and Savior... I pray that this gives you something to think about.  If you fall into this category, please take time to visit my page, Meeting Jesus Our Savior.  There you will find hope.
God is very gracious and He has made provision for each of us to have eternal life through His Son.

I pray that the Lord blesses you this day.  Look to Him for your strength and your hope... for all that You have need of will be found in Christ Jesus.

Love in Christ,
Sherry
"not I, but Christ"
Galatians 2:20


(Verse 1)
I see angels ascending, descending
On a stairway from heaven to earth.
At the top stands the Lord, God of Abr'ham.
He is mighty.

(Chorus)
How awesome is this place, dear Father.
How beautiful the house of God.
Your Presence at the gate of heaven,
It is good to be near. It is good to be here.
How awesome is this place, oh Lord.

(Verse 2)
I feel blessings ascending, descending
On the hearts and the prayers of the saints.
Through this fellowship, sweet, comes His pleasure.
He is lovely!

(Repeat Chorus)
How awesome is this place, dear Father.
How beautiful the house of God.
Your Presence at the gate of heaven,
It is good to be near. It is good to be here.
How awesome is this place, oh Lord.

(Verse 3)
To the Ancient of Days be the honor.
He is worthy alone to be praised.
We will sing through the ages in Glory
You are holy!!












(Repeat Chorus)
How awesome is this place, dear Father.
How beautiful the house of God.
Your Presence at the gate of heaven,
It is good to be near. It is good to be here.
How awesome is this place, oh Lord.

WELCOME HOME !
Safe In The Arms of Jesus
Into arms that have always held her
Through the hard times in her life;
Into arms that brought her peace
When this world offered only strife



Into arms so strong yet gentle
That wrapped her in His love;
Into arms that offered comfort
From our Father up above.



Into arms that always reached for her
To help her find the way;
Into arms that gave her the courage
To face yet another day.



Into arms of one so compassionate
That He died for me and you;
Into arms that will hold her elsewhere now
Because her time on earth was through.



Into arms that stand wide open
As He bids His child to come;
She's forever in the arms of Jesus,
Our Father's beloved Son.

in memory of his grandmother, Elle.
May you find comfort and peace in knowing that
your time apart is only temporary and
that one day you will be walking the streets of
glory, arm in arm, with her and Jesus....forever.
You are in my heart and prayers.

"Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.  In my Father's house are many mansions:  if it were not so, I would have told you.  I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto myself; that where I am, there ye may be also."

John 14:1 - 3
Such beautiful lyrics and music.
Let this song bless your soul as you follow along.
Truly the hand of God was in it's writing.
Oh what sights await us in Heaven one day

It is good to be near. It is good to be here.

Lord, You are so wonderful to us.  You knew the need we had for a Savior and You loved us enough to send Your Son to purchase our redemption by shedding His blood at Calvary.  Now we have hope.  Hope in Christ.  Because there is no longer any reason why we can't be totally forgiven and put in a right standing before You.  Now we have hope for an eternal life spent with You and all our loved ones who have gone on before us and those who will be coming after us.  Together forever with the One Who loved us enough to die for us.  Together with our heavenly Father.  We can't ever repay You.. but we can thank You.. and praise You.. and give ourselves over totally to You.  Thank You, Lord.  Father, if there is anything that stands between me and You this day, forgive me for my transgression.  Remove all that hinders and clothe me with your righteousness because I want to stand holy before You.  Be with each one who visits this page.  Reach out to where they are and draw them closer through Your Holy Spirit.  Bathe them in Your love.  Hold them in your arms.  Speak truth to their hearts. Give them a Holy visitation of Your Spirit and fill them to overflowing with Your presence.  Do a work in their hearts that only You are able to do so that they will surrentder their lives and wills completely over to your command.  We thank You, Lord, for all that You do and mostly for all that You are.  Blessed be the name of the Lord God Almighty.  We praise You, Father, and give You all the glory.  IN Jesus' name..
amen and amen.
