Ultimate Healing...

Brian Hamilton received his ultimate healing tonight. He has left this world and is with Jesus, free of pain, free of cancer...healed. Healed. HEALED!

Please be in prayer for all of the family. I will not be traveling up there this weekend as planned. I may try to go to the service, but will depend on what is going on with our house sale. If I don't make it for the service, I plan to go up there some weekend soon.

Here is a message from Kristina, "When Jesus is ready to take him, I will be ready to let go. I am at peace with this and know that he will be healed once in the presence of God. I talked with Makayla last night, and she is a trooper! She looked me in the eye and told me to keep the faith and not lose hope. And here I've been worried about talking to her! Anyway, continue to pray for a peace with Brian and plenty of grace for the rest of the family."

My sister, Cynthia, heard a song on the radio this morning. She said it touched her heart, even before knowing what today would bring. Here are the lyrics.

Weak and wounded sinner, lost and left to die
O, raise your head, for love is passing by
Come to Jesus, come to Jesus
Come to Jesus and live!

Now your burden's lifted and carried far away,
And precious blood has washed away the stain.
So, sing to Jesus, sing to Jesus,
Sing to Jesus and live!

And like a newborn baby, don't be afraid to crawl
And remember when you walk, sometimes we fall...
So, fall on Jesus, fall on Jesus
Fall on Jesus and live!

Sometimes the way is lonely and steep and filled with pain.
So if your sky is dark and pours the rain, then
Cry to Jesus, cry to Jesus
Cry to Jesus and live!

Oh and when the love spills over and music fills the night
And when you can't contain your joy inside, then
Dance for Jesus, dance for Jesus
Dance for Jesus and live!

And with your final heartbeat, kiss the world goodbye
Then go in peace, and laugh on Glory's side, and
Fly to Jesus, fly to Jesus
Fly to Jesus and live!

Welcome to Heaven, Brian.

I know this is hard for you knowing that someone else will have to go through what you did in losing your father. I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and love you.
