Thank you

I cannot thank all of our family and friends enough for all your support over the last 2 weeks. It has been an incredibly difficult week and have felt God's peace and comfort surrounding all of us thanks to the countless prayers and encouragement. I have learned a lot in these last several weeks and I am forever indebted and thankful that Dennis and I are surrounded by such incredible people. The countless text messages, phone calls, meals, flowers, plants, prayers, our sweet friend Cole running to our house to try to rescue a delivery on our porch during the storm, my parents who have served us countless times by helping us with the dogs, running to our house to get things....I have felt truly overwhelmed and blessed. My mom text me to remind me to read my Jesus Calling on August 20th....and man was it oh so perfect...

Jesus Calling for August 20th..."I AM A GOD THAT HEALS. I heal broken bodies, broken minds, broken hearts, broken lives, and broken relationships."

So thankful that he heals and is near the brokenhearted and that we have hope in heaven. We have all been encouraged by the book "Heaven is for Real", there is even a children's version that Melissa read to her kids. Oh what joy to know that Joe is in heaven-healed, not broken, joyful and not hurting...this is the only thing that can bring you peace in the heartache. Knowing that he is in a much better place...though our hearts ache and we miss him dearly what a blessing to know he has a new body...a perfect one!!

Psalms 34:18-The LORD is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Thank you, thank you, thank you...we could not do this without you!!
