Until We Meet Again...

Many of you may remember the post I did several months ago asking for prayer for our cousin Becky who was fighting a battle with cancer.  Thank you for your prayers.  The Lord answered those prayers a couple of weeks ago by calling cousin Becky home to be with Him.

Though all who loved her are grieving her loss, we also rejoice, like she did before she died, that she is with her Savior and enduring no more pain, but is safe in His arms and singing His praises forever.  She "knew Whom she believed and was persuaded that He was able to keep that which she had committed to Him until that Day." (2 Tim. 1:12)

We are so thankful for the time we had to get to know cousin Becky and her husband, Rod, last summer.  What an amazing example of how we don't know what a year will bring forth.  We were looking forward to many more times of fellowship with both of them, but we look forward to the day that we can all be together again in Heaven.

I wanted to share the email that cousin Rod sent out:

"Dear friends,
This morning about 5 AM Becky got a call from a very good friend that her new home was finally ready for her. He promised that she would find a lot of friends and relatives and her Mom. He guaranteed that she would have no more pain, that her tears would dry up and she could sing in a choir where everyone knew the words, sang in tune, the tempo would be upbeat and special robes would be provided. Of course, that friend was Jesus whom Becky has loved and served for most of her life. I continue to covet your prayers, friendship and love as I adjust to living without my best friend of more than 41 years. Rod"

Please continue to keep Rod in your prayers and all of her friends and family as Becky was much loved and will be dearly missed.

All of us together - Summer 2011
