The appointment has come...

I know that Gods plans and thoughts are higher than mine, and that His plans and purposes for our lives are watched over to the tiniest details including the number of hairs on our head and even the catching of our tears in a bottle. So when a life ends I know that there is a reason and that all things work together for good for those who love God and are called according to His purpose.
It is appointed unto man once to die...
My Father in laws appointment came on Sunday morning October 12th, 2008. I'd like to thank you all for your prayers and emails, comments and phone calls. The family is arriving and the memorial service is being planned for this Thursday. There is much to do, including caring for Mother in law. If you would please continue to pray for our family and for the salvation for those who do not know Jesus I would greatly appreciate it.

 Wherefore the rather, brethren, give diligence to make your calling and election sure:
for if ye do these things, ye shall never fall:  For so an entrance shall be ministered unto you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.  
Wherefore I will not be negligent to put you always in remembrance of these things,
 though ye know them, and be established in the present truth.
Yea, I think it meet, as long as I am in this tabernacle,
 to stir you up by putting you in remembrance;
II Peter 1:10-13

Praying now as I read this post. I thank the LORD that you know him and his will. May God give you and your family the peace and strength needed at such a time. I pray that one might come to know the LORD as their Saviour in this sober moment.

God bless you dear friend..
