Your prayers for Ann Maree were graciously answered this morning, around 1:30.

Ann Maree is home at last!    OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Last October, after the full scope and sobering consequences of her cancer were known, God woke her in the small hours and gave her a foretaste of the unbridled “shalom” awaiting her in Heaven.  She was laughing and crying the next morning, trying to find words to convey what she experienced.  And so grateful to Jesus for His promise to her of that destiny.   This morning I imagine her family and friends in Heaven are saying, “You think that was cool, check this out!”

Here’s a song for Ann Maree, again taken from the Psalms:

“I have set the Lord always before me.
Because he is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.
Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices;
my body also will rest secure,
because you will not abandon me to the grave
,
nor will you let your Holy One see decay.
You have made known to me the path of life;
you will fill me with joy in your presence,
with eternal pleasures at your right hand.

(Psalm 16:8-11)

    So sorry for you and family Tom, but glad that Ann Maree is now with our Lord. I’m thinking about that curve in 287 near Berthoud and your journey together. She has been by your side for all of your life, and she will be missed by all of us.

    So to, for my mother – a foretaste to whet her appetite months before she went home. Praying for you to be comforted, and rejoicing with Ann over her new life.

    Jesus promised a special place prepared in heaven for his loved ones. I imagine that special place for Ann Maree is full of beauty we cannot imagine and colors we have never seen before. I will miss her here in this life, but I also know that this life is only the beginning. I look forward to the future reunion. And, Tom, I will continue to pray for you, for comfort and peace in the grieving.
