Those who plant in tears will harvest SHOUTS OF JOY. They weep as they plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the HARVEST.

Psalm 126:5-6

Well hubby and I had a wonderful weekend at the Homeschooling conference. We were encouraged and refreshed and ready for another great year with our children. It was great to spend time just being husband and wife which I think we all forget what that is like at times in our lives. So to sum it all up it was GREAT.

Know on to my next news. We had received a few phone calls from my husbands parents through out the conference on how his Grandma's surgery had gone on Friday. The news was not good. They had found her completely full of cancer and had found a huge tumor behind her stomach that they were not able to remove. We knew it would not be long and that her recovery was going to be painful and we were just praying for peace for Grandma. Well Yesterday at noon she went home to be with the Lord. She never woke up from surgery and we are so thankful that the Lord brought her home quickly and protected her from the pain.

She lived a long life of 80 years. We are so blessed to have gotten to spend wonderful times with her. She completed her task for the Lord and now she is with Jesus with no pain and full of the peace that we had prayed for. God is so good to his children and we are so thankful that she did not have to suffer.
