Today was the beginning of sweet thoughts of our blossoming family. As the devotional time brought me to think of how special the Creator truly is it made me realize that with each passing moment what if he did ask, "what are you willing to give, Ana? It may be your last. Will it be sweet?"
Hummmmm . . . . good question.
A few sisters have had prayer requests for healing. They all were precious. The sweet thought through it as is the reflection on how there was peace. Sorrow, yes, but peace still the same. Hank P. March 27, Millard G. April 1, Per T. April 4 and Shaneil P. April 6. All healed completely - in HEAVEN. Now that is sweet thoughts but the pain for the families are still very real. The loss of the here and now and not seeing them, difficult but I have noticed a peace. All these special gifts from the creator have been BATHED in prayer. He gave each of them a little "longer than expected" and brought people together and introduced prayer to many. Sweet thought of each one of them is that they all had smiles on their lives that reflected in their face. Each of these precious people were incredible servants through their sicknesses. My heart heavy for the families as they grieve, the ones who sought out PRAYER WARRIORS on their behalf. I saw all four of their lives bring many together on their behalf. As well as many others who have need of prayers and its' sweet peace and the Holy Spirit interceding on their behalf ~ sweet, sweet, sweet fiery thought.
Sweet thoughts of peace have left for me are the smiles that came through each individuals lives as people LOVED them and sat beside them in prayer, calls, letters, visits, benefits, auctions, meals as each day the melodic memories of their life's thread unrolled to be weaved into the tapestry of other individuals life's canvases.
Their thread: The adult men who lived with servants hearts, the two children who smiled through each unknown moment but brought hope to others. That is sweet like the fragrant aromas that emanated out of their hearts and souls ~ ahhhhh sweet thoughts. Ecclesiastics reflects on the seasons of time . . . and it is sweet to my thoughts.
"There is a time for everything,
and a season for every activity under heaven: . . .
. . .
He has made everything beautiful in its time. He has also set eternity in the hearts of men;"
