Thank you


The picture above is called drops of love.
Looks like it could be tear drops doesn't it?
Many tears have been shed these past few days.
All were shed in love.
Today as I sat in the funeral I thought of all of the prayers of you wonderful women.
And I thanked my God for you.
Thank you for all of your sweet heart felt comments and your words of love and understanding.
If I could give you all a great big hug--- I would.
Please do not stop praying.
This big old house will be pretty empty without Paw Paw.
Anybody want to come and share some coffee in the morning? :)
I am back down to just one coffee drinker.


If I could ask you to pray for one more thing please.
We will have to be getting out of this rental really soon.
Paw Paw was paying the rent on this big place so that we would have a place to take care of him.
Now it is time to find the home God has picked out for us.
Pray that we would follow His lead and that I would not be without ya'll for long.
Does that sound silly?
I don't know what I would have done without ya'll to keep me company this past year.
You were ministering to my soul and you did not even know it.
I love you guys.

Thank you again!

I would like to pass this little piece of sweetness that I got from Mary of Mary's Writing Nook on to all of you who have been so close lately. Thank you for being my sister and friend.You have truly been a light in the darkness.

Sharon,

My heart aches for you. I am keeping you in my prayers, Sis and will ask God to direct you to the place where you are to be. I certainly hope you aren't offline for long, as we will all miss you terribly.

Love you and will continue to ask God to direct you in the right path.

Blessings,
Mary

You will definitely be kept in my prayers. I look forward to seeing where God takes you. Do you need to be out by the end of this month, or do you have more time than that? I am thinking of how when I first met you, you were living in your camper trailer while you decided where you were going. Keep us updated and Sharon, have a really good rest tonight. I am sure it has been a long day.

Hello sweet sis, I have been thinking of you, and praying for you all day long. My heart is sending your heart great big hugs and much love. I wish I could be there drinking coffee with you. I am asking God to direct your footsteps to the home He wants for you. Take care, and rest.

Oh Sharon,
Hang in there honey! We are all here for you now, and for as long as you need us! The Lord knows your faithfulness and the desires of your heart- and He will lead you to the blessings that He has already provided for you (if only unseen- for now.) Keep us posted!

Good to see you back again -- I'm sure that your world will feel odd for a while. You've invested a lot of time into caring for PawPaw -- he was very blessed that your family took him in and cared for him so well. Rest up, and look after yourself for a bit, okay?! ((( hugs ))) D

Deb said...

Yes I will continue to pray, He has that special place for you, just start thanking and praising Him in faith!! Funny you mention the coffee, I kept my dads and my moms coffee cup. Still have them:) Love you,
Deb

Jessie said...

Sharon, you are so precious. I will keep your family in my prayers as you look for a new home.
((Big Hugs))

Oh my dear Friend, I just found out about Paw Paw and am so sad. I haven't checked your blog this week but kept thinking and praying for him. Just know that he is sitting with our Heavenly Father and has a mansion with streets of gold. Sounds like you were here for him and you should have no regrets. You have helped me realize that I should cherish the time I spend having a cup of coffee each morning before work with my own dad. I pray that you will find that home that is out there for you. Love and prayers!

Melanie said...

Praying for you! For your loss and for you while you're looking for a new home.

I'd missed the news about PawPaw (I haven't been on the internet for a while) - I'm so sorry. My heart goes out to you and Keith and all the family.
with love and prayers,
Kate
