Busy Times

I really started this blog in the middle of busy times for me. We lost our mom Sept 16, 2010…and its been so difficult getting use to being without her. She was not only our mom, but our best friend! She’s now in Heaven with her Lord…and that’s just what she told the Dr. the night of the 15th when he told her she wouldn’t live through the night…that she would wake up with her Lord. What a testimony for your last night on earth! She’s also reunited with our dad and many other family that is now with the Lord.

We have been going through her things, cleaning out, and cleaning up for the past few weekends. This is a bitter-sweet time. Its sad, but yet it gives us a peaceful closing in going through her earthly things. I was able to get a Bedroom Suite which I am loving. But its been a trial getting my extra room cleaned out and getting everything of her’s in the room.

For these reasons, I’ve not been able to post a lot on my blog. I will try to post some book give aways…and add sites to the sidebar so you can find some good Christian Fiction.

Until then….Hope you have having a great time reading!

Blessings to you…..Joy

    So sorry for you that your mom left the earth, but glad for her to be with Jesus. This life seems long, but it’s really a dash through the flood and the sunshine.

    I will pray for comfort and strength for you; my dad died last year, and my brother this year. It’s very stressful.

      Thanks you Jeanette….thanks for your prayer. I am so sorry that you lost your dad and brother so very close together. It is very stressful. It takes a long time to get use
      to living without them. We lost our dad in July 1995 and I still miss him so much. We do have the hope and peace that they are in Heaven with our Lord when they
      are Christian’s. Thanks for stopping by!
