Words of Comfort 12:15, June 9, ’09

While Dan sleeps on and on, Jamie sent these Scriptures which I pray will comfort you as much as they did me.

“Dan,
 Go with God!  He’s waiting for you.
 Psm.116:15 – “Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.”
 
 
 Anne,
 Go with God….He’s taking you to great places!!
Hebrews 13:5b,6 – “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
So we say with confidence, ‘The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid.  What can man do to me?”
 
Hebrews 13:18-21 – ” Pray for us.  We are sure that we have a clear conscience and desire to LIVE honorably in every way.  I particularly urge you to pray so that I may be restored to you soon.”  (Romania?)

   “May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shepherd of the sheep, equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may He work in us what is pleasing to Him, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever.  Amen.”

Dan Is Still Waiting

It was a long night last night.  Twice he thought he was going, but, for some reason, did not let go.  Maybe it is not his time yet?  Melissa (our dear friend that we lived with for several months before we came to California) is on the plane now coming to San Francisco to help us take care of Dan for 3 days.

Please, pray that God will help Dan let go of whatever is holding him here.  Praise God who gives us peace, comfort and joy.

The scripture God gave me this morning is Luke 15:11-20 about the son who had done wrong, and came home to his father to ask forgiveness.  We all have made mistakes.  There is no one who is perfect.  Jesus died for our sins so that we can be forgiven…if we choose to follow Him.  This story in Luke is telling us that God is preparing a party and a home for all His children.  I pray that you will choose to be an intentional follower of Christ so we can all be together with Him one day.

Will Dan Go Home Tonight?

As I was finishing dinner tonight, Michelle called urgently, “Anne, Dan wants you!”  I ran from the table to where he was lying in the recliner.  She said, “He thinks he may go soon.”                                             

All day Dan was not in his right mind.  But tonight he is clear in his thinking.  He feels dizzy and when he opens his eyes he sees clouds. Dan is having difficulty breathing.  He thinks he is near the end.  But his color is good.  My training is that he will have some blue come around his lips and in the ends of his toes and fingers before he goes home to God.

I think it will be several hours before he goes.  He may even be here in the morning.  We will let you know when he passes.  We pray for God to comfort you. We love you,  Anne and Dan

 

All day Dan was not in his right mind.  But tonight his thinking is clear. He called the family to gather around him for some tender moments  telling them each one goodbye.  Then he phoned his brother and sisters to bid them farewell.  He was feeling dizzy, and when he opens his eyes he sees clouds.  He hears a voice saying, “Come home. Come home.”  Having  great difficulty breathing, he thinks he is near the end.  But his color is good.  His feet and hands are warm. My training is that he will be blue around his lips and the ends of his toes and fingers will be bluish  before he passes. Yet he  says, “I feel  strange.  I’ve never done this before, so I’m not sure what is going to happen.”

 I think it will be several hours before he goes.  He may even be here in the morning.  We will let you know.  We pray for God to comfort you. It is Dan’s great desire that you will live so as to one day be able to join him in Heaven.  He and I thank you for your prayers, your messages, your concern.  The best way you can show respect for Dan is to study to understand God’s Word, and become intentional followers of Jesus. — Anne and Dan

Dan wants you to help the children after he is gone.

Dying is an unlovely thing, but it is only our shell that is harmed. Thought Dan's body was swollen with sarcomas and fluid, his spirit is safe in the arms of Jesus.
