Another dear friend of mine recently emailed,
"The ones who would go with you, or even take your place, are not able completely to walk the same road. What we can do is actively wait for you on the other side of this valley of the shadow of death. We pray and watch and prepare our banners and cheer for you..."
What a beautiful picture of Christ's body. Thank you for handling me so gently. Softly. Praying I will come through this valley. Waiting expectantly with me to see what GOD is going to do. Praising Him for what He is doing. How He will redeem.
Someone reminded me today of Moses when he could no longer hold up his hands as the Israelites were fighting. As long as he held up his hands, they were winning, but as soon as he dropped his hands, the Israelites began to lose the battle. His friends on both sides of him held up his hands when he could no longer do it on his own. Thank you for holding me up.
This is one of my favorite pictures of Reese. I think they all are! To me it shows how little and dainty she is. I am so thankful for the two whole days we were given with her, even though a lifetime wouldn't be enough.
You do not even know what will happen tomorrow. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.
