ERIN IS HOME!

The previous post expressed the critical nature of Erin's present condition. I didn't know what to expect when I logged on this morning at our Buffalo hotel. We are confident that Erin will be "absent from the body, present with the Lord" if she doesn't survive this ordeal.

As PILGRIM PALS let's commit to pray fervently for Erin and her family today. I am! If our sovereign God chooses to call her home let's come alongside her family to show our love and support. They will need the loving care and encouragement from fellow believers!

Thank you, Terry, for keeping us informed!

Standing together,

NOTE: It has just been posted that Erin is home! The angels are rejoicing but we are grieving...but not as others who have no hope. Finally home!

Yes we grieve and we also rejoice that Erin is free from sickness with her Saviour, Jesus!

Hi, Pals...

The following is a song my sister loves, and she has taught me to love it, too. When Arlene went home she said that she thought of this song, and now that Erin has gone on, too, I thought maybe you Pals would like it, too...Can someone please post this for my sister? Thank you. The song is called "When I get where I'm going". Enjoy! (Look it up on youtube and you can probably hear it there...it is so beautiful. My sister and I often sing it together).


When I get where I'm going
on the far side of the sky.
The first thing that I'm gonna do
Is spread my wings and fly.

I'm gonna land beside a lion,
and run my fingers through his mane.
Or I might find out what it's like
To ride a drop of rain

(Chorus:)
Yeah when I get where I'm going,
there'll be only happy tears.
I will shed the sins and struggles,
I have carried all these years.
And I'll leave my heart wide open,
I will love and have no fear.
Yeah when I get where I'm going,
Don't cry for me down here.

I'm gonna walk with my grandaddy,
and he'll match me step for step,
and I'll tell him how I missed him,
every minute since he left.
Then I'll hug his neck.

(Chorus)

So much pain and so much darkness,
in this world we stumble through.
All these questions, I can't answer,
so much work to do.

But when I get where I'm going,
and I see my Maker's face.
I'll stand forever in the light,
of His amazing grace.
Yeah when I get where I'm going,
Yeah when I get where I'm going,
there'll be only happy tears.
Hallelujah!
I will love and have no fear.
When I get where I'm going.
Yeah when I get where I'm going.

My ♥ is aching for Erin's family but rejoicing that she is in the presence of our Lord! What a homecoming she received, I'm sure! I will continue to uphold her family as they come to grips with living without Erin physically. Our God is good! He is the God of comfort, grace and mercy! Praise Him!
