I really can not believe I am writing these words right now. Friday afternoon our dear friend took her last breath on earth. She is now home with no more sickness!! I know she is rejoicing on streets of gold today.
My heart is heavy today for the Lindsey family. For almost as long as I can remember we've been friends with this family. They are precious people!! I am thankful I had the privilege to call Sis. Mary Ann my friend. I wish we could be home with them at this time. Please keep Bro. Frank, their daughters Sis. Allison and Sis. Jen, the son in laws Bro. Jeff and Bro. Keith and the grandchildren in your prayers!!!
In August Sis. Lindsey was diagnosed with cancer. She fought a courageous battle for life. She loved being in the house of God so last Sunday they took Sis. Mary Ann to church on a gurney. She is now face to face with God CANCER FREE. No it is not the healing we hoped and prayed would happen but part of me is rejoicing because she is suffering no more.
I can just imagine Sis. Lindsey she is shouting and rejoicing with Sis. Donna Maggard, Sis Elizabeth Combs, Bro. Sylvester Carpenter and Bro. Ray Driscoll and many more. Our home church has lost many soldiers in the last few years. I just named a few of them in that list. We miss them all very much!! Thankfully we have a promise of a grand reunion soon.
