It's Been a Year...and I am Well...

From Gus' CaringBridge site:

WEDNESDAY, MAY 31, 2006 03:21 PM, CDT
Gus is having a very hard day. Medically there isn't much more that can done. His blood pressure has continued to trend downward, his blood gas has not been good, it is a struggle to watch. We want to be alligned with God's will. Our hearts continue to yearn and we want things to be as we want them. We are struggling with how to pray.
" I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world"
John 16:33

Gus won his long fight yesterday at about 7:00pm. We rejoice for him and celebrate his time with us. We are comforted with knowledge that we will all be together with our Lord Jesus Christ and our Father. Thank you again for all your prayers. Keep praying, Praise the Lord.

Jenny, I am rejoicing that Gus is home with his Father and grieving for you and your loss. I can't get the words to Mercy Me's "Homesick" out of my head today. You are in my prayers this week and always. I am still amazed at the grace and mercy God has bestowed upon you and the ministry that He has given you.

Anniversaries are hard. I am praying for you today Jenny. I know that as a mother the biggest comfort you have when your arms are empty is that he is in the arms of Jesus.
