For we are saved by hope: but hope that is seen is not hope: for what a man seeth, why doth he yet hope for? But if we hope for that we see not, then do we with patience wait for it. Romans 8:24-25

October 18, 2013 – He is Alive!

It’s hard each time we put new flowers on Hannah’s grave, it’s a reminder that it’s real, that she isn’t here, that she died here on earth.  But then I look up and see the huge cross, there in the middle of the cemetery, and I’m reminded that she is alive in Heaven…and she is with Jesus.  It is of utmost importance for each of us to remember that JESUS IS ALIVE.  Jesus suffered, died in our place and rose again so that we can live with Him forever, because He loves us more than we can begin to understand… He has power over death, and He is very much alive.  God alone has power over the grave, and that gives us HOPE.

As Paul wrote to the Thessalonians…We do not grieve as those who have no hope.

I miss my precious little girl, it seems so wrong to be here without her, it feels wrong to do anything without her, something (someone) is always missing…however, I do know that she is with the Almighty and that is how I’m able to go on.  Our hope doesn’t lie here on this earth, not with the worldly things that everyone seems to so passionately strive for, but our hope is in Jesus and in an eternity spent with Him and with our precious Hannah!  He is alive!

In Him!

Amy

    Every year at this time I grieve a little deeper for you. Hannah is still very much alive for Baylee and I as we pray for you guys all the time. My heart will never stop bleeding for you. The amount of pain of the loss of my father this week has been shocking. It seems so final. I am very much aware that the loss of a parent is nothing compared to the loss of a child. it is something you don’t get over you just have no choice but to wake up and try to function. I love you Amy and long for the day where we are both in Heaven hanging out with Hannah and my dad praising Jesus for distroying death. marybeth
