I AskThe Lord For Joy

Tuesday, January 23, 2007

In 1999 I Lost 2 people whom I cared for very much. One young one old. One died on Friday and one died on Sunday. In one week-end a large piece of my family circle was taken away. A mother and a daughter. I truely feel they entered heaven holding hands.

Their death made me realize that noone is promised tomorrow, but I needed to make the best out of whatever I had. I decided to be happy no matter how many lemons I had to deal with.

I enjoy who I am. I really know what a goodChristian life is. Once I turned it all over to the LORD, He put joy in my heart and I haven't been the same since.

    Once I turned it all over to the LORD, He put joy in my heart and I haven't been the same since. ..... How profound. How true. I'm sorry for your earthly loss and happy for your Godly gain. I am awe filled to know that we will spend an eternity with all of our brothers and sisters in Christ in His perfect love. I can't wait to be surrounded in heaven with pure love and be able to return it in equal measure. God Bless you and your testimony. What a beautiful way to honor your loved ones. Your Sister in Christ ~D~

    Hi, this is Sharon . Thank you for the welcome. I read what you had to say about losing your mother and daughter at the same time. I thought I have been through alot but not what you have been through. I lost my father about 18 years ago. I know what that feels like. To loose your daughter would have put me over the edge. I'm very close to my mother and she is a really strong and influential person in my life. I don't know how I would handle that because we are close. I know I will have to face this tragedy one day but I never think about it now. She is 76 years old and looks 50 and has tons of energy , very youthfull minded and a great sense of humor.. You would never believe she's that old. Maybe that is why I never think about that loss. I really don't know how you survived both and especially your daughter. You must be a very strong person even though you have the Lord.
