II Corinthians 5:8 "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord."
Two wonderful people went home to be with the Lord today. The first was Dr. Lee Roberson. He passed away this morning. He was a tremendous Man of God. I've had the privilege to hear him preach many times in my Christian life. He was full of wisdom and power when he preached. He was in his mid 90's. This man has no doubt made an impact on so many lives. Please pray for his church and his family.
The second person was my husband's grandmother. This was the mother of his dad that died in Vietnam. She passed in her sleep. Her health had been failing in the past few years. She knew the Lord. My husband and my daughters will be traveling to Jefferson, Ohio for the service that will be held either Wednesday or Thursday. I'd appreciate it if you would pray for them as they travel. This will be difficult on my daughters especially. They had been writing letters back and forth with their great-grandma for the past couple of years. We were hoping to make a trip to see her in the next few months. Evidently the Lord had other plans than for us to get to visit with her one more time.
I pray y'all had wonderful Lord's Day services. We sure did. We began our revival meeting with Bro. Darrell Hayes this afternoon. Please pray for our church as we go through this week. My husband will not get to be here for the most of it. But God knew that too didn't He? Have a great week and I'll try to post through the week if I can.
