Thank You For Your Prayers


_**Mom & Flowers

Dear Friends,
On May 18th at 3:15am my mom stepped into heaven. She ran a mighty race but for the last 7 hours she ran a marathon. THANK YOU for your prayers and support. I have had so many special moments with my mom this week and I thank God for every one of them. This is a favorite  picture of her.


“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us”
Hebrews 12:1 NIV




  1. Cheryl I am so sad at the loss of your dear sweet mother. I know you will miss her greatly. You are an amazing daughter to both of your parents. You brought much joy and love to your mom, all the way to the end, pointing her to Jesus and comforting her in loving and spiritual ways. Cherish your memories, and remember that she is now in that cloud of witnesses, cheering you on as you run this race. May the God of all comfort now comfort and strengthen you and your family in the days ahead.

    Thank you for your kind message. The Lord is making all things good…. in His time. Everything is falling into place and my Dad is blessed by the love, prayers, and support of many friends and family. I will write more devotions next week. For now…. I am praying and looking for ways to be a help to him during this time of sorrow, but also joy.
