I've Truly Missed You!

Hello, Dearest Dear Ones! First I want to thank you all for the prayers and sweet comments upon the death of my Dear Sister-in-law.

There was a beautiful celebration of her life and her memory will live on in our hearts until we join her one day in our Heavenly Home.

I'd like to share some snaps from the Emmanuel Episcopal Church in San Angelo, Texas.

This is the little church Mr. Precious' mother and father were married many years ago.

They have both gone on to Heaven so we know a wonderful reunion was held when, Mary, my Sister-in-law arrived.

My Daddy is also in Heaven. While on this earth he loved little children so much. When he'd walk through the door of his church, all the little children would run up to him because he always had a pocket full of candy to give them.

So I'm sure he met Mary at the Pearly Gates with a handful of candy to welcome her in! :)

Mary had two little babies who were already in heaven. I just know Jesus pulled out His best rocking chair for her and those little ones just climbed up into her lap and she was kissing their little faces off! :)

I've shared with you before that my Mr. Precious is a runner. He runs downtown and calls me to pick him up. Chloe Dawn and I pop into the car and go get him. Most of the time when I arrive, he is talking on his cell phone.

And most of the time he was talking to his sister, Mary. They were really close.

We have just returned home this afternoon and he decided to go for a run ( I know, he's crazy). I went to pick him up and he said, "I won't get to talk to my little sister anymore." He's hurting, but God has made him strong.

I don't want to make you sad, just wanted to share a little more about Mary. I try to always be upbeat and happy on my blog and I will continue to be. I want to share with you our visit with little Carter and our daughter. So after I wash the dirty clothes and clean up my nasty house, I'll show you some snaps of my Little Tiny.

Again, Dear Ones, you all mean the world to me and I've missed all the parties and goings on in Blogland. But most of all I've missed YOU!

Hope you haven't forgotten me. This is the longest I've been away from Blogland except when we were hit by hurricane Ike! So I hope you still remember me! I'm the silly one who always sings you a song at the end of my posts! :)

You are all my bunch of sweeties,
Shelia :)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song -

When I Get Where I'm Going

When I get where I'm going
On the far side of the sky
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly

I'm gonna land beside a lion
And run my fingers through his mane
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop of rain

Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will shed the sins and struggles
I have carried all these years
And I'll leave my heart wide open
I will love and have no fear
Yeah when I get where I'm going
Don't cry for me down here

I'm gonna walk with my grand daddy
And he'll match me step for step
And I'll tell him how I missed him
Every minute since he left
Then I'll hug his neck

So much pain and so much darkness
In this world we stumble through
All these questions I can't answer
So much work to do

But when I get where I'm going
And I see my maker's face
I'll stand forever in the light
Of his amazing grace
Yeah when I get where I'm going
There'll be only happy tears
I will love and have no fear
When I get where I'm going
Yeah when I get where I'm going
