After Where's Heidi? One Sister's Journey released in April last year, I experienced emotions in a way only God could work, and ways I never imagined. The response to When the Waves Subside: There is Hope brought similar thanks and awe of God's working through my writing. At this time last year I learned a friend's battle with cancer started again. We went to prayer in hopes of God healing her and giving her victory over this terrible disease.
On one hand, we lost our amazing and wonderful friend in less than a few months yet to understand that sometimes, God answers our prayers in a way we don't grasp at the time. I miss her and pray for her husband, children, friends, and family throughout this past year as everyone adjusts to the empty spot in their schedules, lives, and routines left from her absence.
This is one of the inspirations behind No More Pain: I Can Fly. How can I use the gift to write and speak to help others understand there is hope, and that we prayed for healing and freedom from the pain. God answered the prayer, just not necessarily the way we hoped. There is a page within this book in memory of my friend, as she sang to us while in line for her calling hours. I surrounded her with angels because I know she isn't alone, and neither are we.
My prayer is for anyone whose lost someone, to know that when we admit our mistakes (aka sins), believe in God, and repent of the mistakes ~ there is hope for eternity. God sent Jesus, His Only Son, to die on the cross for our sins. Jesus rose again three days later and lives in heaven with God. When we have a personal relationship with Jesus, eternity isn't merely a hope - it's our future.
After death, only our physical body goes in the ground. Our souls are lifted up and called home, home with God and the friends and family that went before us. My prayer is for Heidi and all our missing boys, girls, men, and women to be reunited with their families when our time on earth comes to an end too.
No More Pain: I Can Fly is written to encourage the family and friends grieving for a loved one, especially those we think left us "too soon" or when we felt "it wasn't time". On the flip side, this book will help those dealing with the loss of loved and find themselves asking, "How can I survive without ...?...?" or possibly, "How do I know he/she is okay?"
My hope was others would receive this message after reading the book, this reader's response brought tears to my eyes because God spoke to her heart, and she shared this with me. Her words brought tears to my eyes, tears of thanksgiving, hope, and praise.
"...they (No More Pain: I Can Fly books)
are a great gift giving idea when someone passes away maybe rather than flowers... Cards are anywhere from $3 - $5 for a nice one... Loved the little angel..."
~ No More Pain: I Can Fly Reader ~
The added blessing: she ordered five more copies of No More Pain: I Can Fly
to have on hand to share with friends and family when they lose a loved one.
In addition, she contacted Deb (who makes the angels) to purchase an angel
to gift with each book she gives. God is good...All the Time...God is good!
