I am posting today..because I was too busy crying yesterday with excitement!
Our I 171H is finally HERE, YEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!
So today I need to get the updated HS license & the I 171H signed & notarized & sent off to Tallahassee Florida for Apostilles! It would be nice if Monday the FBI Clearance gets here from Virginia, and I am wondering if I should wait to see? I dunno..I am just happy though!
Also I received a beautiful card from a dear neighbor of mine, the card read:
I am home in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our Father's Will.
There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while life remaineth--
You shall rest in Jesus' land.When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!
As you can see the highlighted part is what broke me down..because it was yet another confirmation from God, (right after receiving the I 171H), that there is work to be done and children to take care of..and of course my 'Hope' being part of my life's plan;)
My uncle Arturo lived his life and it was all part of God's plan, now he is resting...and waiting for the rest of the family to complete their lives and join him in Jesus' sweet light. My uncle Arturo always raced ahead of everyone else...did everything first..guess he's even experiencing peace first...GOOD FOR HIM! I LOVE YOU TO PEICES UNCLE;) OUR FAMILY'S THUNDER-HEART-XOX
Stay strong girls...pray for your children, and hold tight the Lord is answering prayers!
