The Wound Healer...

What is it about autumn images that stirs the soul?...


the colors?...the culmination of a seasons glory...


Today I thought...autumn is like our lives when we're nearing our completion on this earth.


We are our most colorful when we aproach the end of our life here...simply a changing of the season ...heading for the eternal season, the everlasting.


Surely the King of all the seasons..the only one that can be counted on as the BEST, the FINEST...




Life is a GIFT...like flowers offered from a tender heart...freely given.




The seasons change...



and wounds heal...




Like a tree that loses it's FINEST limb....


It cries for the loss...losing it's lifes energy for a season....all the while the HEALING is silently, miraculously happening.



Our Family is preparing to offer up our FINEST...


My Love...


My Childrens Father ...


My Grandchildrens Papa...


the man Loved by many...
Such a God we serve...the Wound Healer.


Your prayers...a pricless gift .


with endless love, Kathy.

Forgive my absence as my family and I attempt to surround my "Love " with as much support and time together as we can these last days .
I knew you would understand...you always have.
I know you will be holding us all up in prayer....
He Reigns !

  6. I have had you and Dave in my prayers from the beginning and I still consider it a privilege to pray for you all. I wish I was there to give you a big hug, but I know your Heavenly Father is there with you to give you an extra-special hug at this time!! Praying also that the Holy Spirit will give you strength and peace to handle these upcoming days as Dave takes Jesus' hand. Kathy, you have loved Dave well and have been the best wife he could have ever asked for. Cherish all the memories you have with him and know that you have many friends who love you and are here for you, even though we have never met in person. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. Love & blessings from NC!

  22. The glimpse of this imperfect life as you've shared through the lense of a child of the Ultimate Physician, speaks volumes to those without hope. As always, my prayers and tears are with you and your beloved family as you witness the homegoing of your earthly soulmate. No matter how brief the separation in this vapor of life, I can only imagine your heartache. May you feel the love of the Father and the family and friends he has surrounded you with during the coming days. Patty

    I just found this blog today through Beth's Facebook page. Anyway, don't have words but just wanted to send some love from Charleston. I love you very much - and then by default, so does my family even though they have never met you. You have been in our prayers and will continue to be. What a blessing it was to see you all this summer.
    Love, Jackie
