We're Back...

We have arrived safely home
from our unexpected trip.
A special thank you to those
that were praying for us.

My beloved is still off work for now
but I do hope to post, again, soon. ;o)
It will be another busy week for us.
We received news this morning that
our pastor's father
(beloved "grandpa" of our church
and wonderful soul winner)
has come to the end of his battle with cancer
and has gone on to be with the Lord.
Though grieving, we rejoice in his homegoing
and look forward to seeing him, again, in Heaven.

I hope that y'all are enjoying your week.
I look forward to "catching up"
and visiting with y'all soon.
And look forward to sharing lots of photos of our trip!

Glad to hear you are home safe and sound.

hmmm Your "were home" post brings mixed emotions .... If you are home, this means you arent here :)

I am glad that you made it home safe and sound and we had a wonderful time in fellowship with your family.

Praise the Lord you had a safe trip. I'm sure your church family is hurting over this loss, but how wonderful to know you will all see this dear man again.

Hey, I'm glad your back and that you are all safe and sound.

Glad you are back - You will remain in my prayers - as you have another funeral to attend. Such a blessing when you know that they are in Heaven - but still emotionally draining to say goodbye.

Blessings to You,

I'm glad your honey is still home from work. Is he home for good, or is this just a good long stay?

I'm so glad that y'all are back safely. I know you are so glad to have your hubby home with you. My SIL's husband got back from Iraq on Sunday.

Take care and enjoy your time together!! Love you!

Glad you all traveled safely. I'm sorry to hear of the loss in your church, but at the same time rejoice in the home-going of a dear saint.

I am so sorry for your loss and so thankful you had a safe up north and home again.

I just want to let you know that CMinSC held its first meeting on Saturday. We are planning to start reading through Home Education via the email list and to continue holding monthly meetings in Columbia (the most central location for all of us).

Deepest Sympathies to you and your church family.

Glad you made it home safe and were able to fellowship on the way. Sorry to hear of the passing of your church "grandpa" but glad to know that he will be waiting for you in Heaven.

So happy that you all are back home safe & sound! I'm sorry to hear of your pastor's dad's passing - it's so hard to see those senior saints depart, but thankfully in Christ there are no good-byes.

Enjoy your family time!!!
