honoring Tuesday...

from indiana...we send out prayers to the whitt family and friends


the 3 little girlies and i went out for our wagon ride...and it was a delightful treat for the girls. i explained why were walking in the snow and at this time...

funny, brooke and jada seemed to be happy that tuesday was with jesus...they said that sounded like fun...playing with him and the angels. {oh to have that faith like a child}


as an adult, it's hard for me to take hold of...death always is. what i know for sure is that in christ jesus death is not the final word.

so today, we honor tuesday...for her life and her smile. we honor her family for being steadfast in their faith in spite of the icky circumstance of cancer with one of their beautiful daughters. and we take a moment to thank god, for sending jesus to us so that when we walk through these fires in life, we know he never leaves us...and we get the joy of eternal life with him.

and that, my friends, that, is a good thing.

"And Christ lives within you, so even though your body will die, the Spirit gives you life because you have been made right with God. The Spirit of God, who raised Jesus from the dead, lives in you. And just as God raised Christ Jesus from the dead, he will give life to your mortal bodies by this same Spirit living within you." romans 8:10-11

I've watched friends lose a child, and while it is so sad, I cannot imagine doing so without thinking that they are in the arms of Jesus......so hopeless otherwise! thanks for sharing!

This is beautiful. I am a family friend of the Whitt's, and I am making a video scrapbook for them to see all the wagie rides and balloon releases. I would love to add your pictures to it, plus what you daughters said about having fun with Jesus and the scripture at the end.

Absolutely beautiful!

You know, the first thing that Jackson said when his Papa died last year was, "now he's not sick anymore!!!" He was so very excited for his Papa. The 2nd thing he said, "now he's with Jesus!!"

Like you said, oh to have faith like a child!
