For those who are in Christ...
2 Cor. 5:8 (NASB-U)
we are of good courage, I say, and prefer rather to be absent from the body and to be at home with the Lord.
At 1:20pm today, Sandy heard those tender words, "Well done, my good and faithful servant", as she met her Saviour face-to-face!
1 Thes. 4:13 (NASB-U)
But we do not want you to be uninformed, brethren, about those who are asleep, so that you will not grieve as do the rest who have no hope.
So we mourn, not as those without hope, but as those who now must fill the void this special lady filled in our lives!
Please pray for Steve, Adam, Chris, Carrie, her mom and sister. Not all of them can understand the hope we have, but I pray that Sandy's death will bring about His purposes and He will allow beauty to arise from ashes!

So thankful for the hope you have and for the ways I know that God is going to use you to share that hope throughout the coming days. Rejoicing that Sandy is with our Savior, but praying for those of you who are hurting and missing her. Sending much love ~
