I definitely don't cry for Christian

I have the very best friends and family-- thank you all for your prayers, love and encouragement.

You. bless. me.

I had heard Andrew's Song by Mandisa before and forgotten about it. My sister Coco sent it to me the other day and I had the pleasure of listening to it again. The words are wonderful and Mandisa's voice is amazing.

Y'know, I definitely don't cry for Christian, I just get a little sad for myself sometimes. And that's okay. This world is temporary and when I get to the real world, I cannot wait for Christian to show me around! He couldn't be in more loving arms-- the arms of Jesus. And those same arms are around me and my family as well. I am eternally grateful for those arms and the nail scars on his hands that he bore for me. He suffered for ME! The very least I can do is praise Him for all that He has done and for all that He is!

But thy lovingkindess is better than life, my lips shall praise thee.

Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in thy name.

My soul shall be satisfied as with marrow and fatness; and my mouth shall praise thee with joyful lips:

[Psalm 63:3-5]

You Wouldnt Cry (Andrew’s Song) - Mandisa

Hey Marsha,
I woke a little early this morning from a dream I was having about you and Christian. You know how you always take those videos where you are the voice behind the camera? Well, that's what you were doing and you were asking him questions all about heaven and he was answering every question, just telling you all about it.I wish I could remember all the answers that he said, but all I can remember is "fwogs". :-)

I don't know how you are doing, but I am up and praying for you. I am so glad that when you do get to ask him about heaven, it won't be on a video, it will be hand in hand as he takes you around, showing you.
