Psalm 116: 5-7 "How kind the Lord is! How good He is! So merciful, this God of ours! The Lord protects those of childlike faith; I was facing death, and then He saved me. Now I can rest again, for the Lord has been so good to me."

The scripture you chose here is just beautiful. I pray that you hold to the Lord's goodness during this time and that you are lifted up by His mercy. Love and hugs, dear friend.

I am glad that your wait is over, and that your father-in-law's pain is gone. But I'm very sorry for the pain that your family will feel now, in the wake of his loss.

I hope you give and get lots of hugs with the Husband and the Tongginator. They will do you all some good.

The verses from Psalm 116 were used in a recent bedside service for my father, given by one of the pastors from his church. They were 'selected for us' so to speak, certainly helpful to me, but also meaningful to my father, so I'm told by the Tongginators Nannie Bubbles.
Everyone's prayers are appreciated.

Sharie said...

Amelia and I are both so very sorry for your loss. No matter how much you prepare yourself, no matter how much you longed for his suffering to be over, nothing can possibly prepare you for his passing.
You're all in our prayers.
