A Celebration in Heaven

The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.


He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: He leadeth me beside the still waters.

He restoreth my soul: He leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for His name's sake.

Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for Thou art with me; Thy rod and Thy staff they comfort me.

Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: Thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

Oh, Dear Ones, my Dear Sister in law, Mr. Precious' baby sister, went home to be with Jesus this morning. She was a wonderful Christian lady and had walked with the Lord all her life. She loved her church and taught Sunday School to the little toddlers for years as well as worked in VBS forever. She also worked in her church's Mother's Day Out program and taught piano lessons. I do believe she had probably touched everyone's life in her little town. Her husband was her best friend and she had three married children and three grandchildren.

We'll be on our way soon for the funeral. All of you sweet precious prayer warriors, we do covet your prayers for our family. I love you all and will be back later on.

You are all my sweeties,
Shelia :)
