This blog follows our family's journey to life after death. Our daughter Anna died November 25, 2007. In Jesus' name we press on.... to a new job, a new state, a new home, a new life. Come with us as we start a new chapter in our lives and as we press on to our eternal home.

Five years ago today I was holding my daughter while she died.
I don't want to remember.
I don't want to forget.
It felt like I was in labor.
Hours and hours of painful waiting.
Holding her in our bed.
My other children coming in to say goodbye.
Kissing her over and over.
Whispering love in her ear.
Crying out to God.
"I can't do this!"
Not believing that it was really happening.
Waiting for a miracle.
Waiting for death.
When it finally came there was sweet release.
It is finished.
Birthed from this life to the next.
Learning to live without a part of myself was hard.
Do not focus on what is seen, but on what is unseen. What is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Today I wait with hope.
I press on with perseverance.
