Sarah - I understand that you might think that people have gotten on with their lives and don't want to know what's going on with your family now that Vinny is in Heaven.  However, I, personally still get a great deal of inspiration out of your writing, and I pray for your family regularly.  Vinny really touched my heart, and I doubt I will ever forget him, and I never even met him personally!  The emotional depth of your entries, both before and after Vinny left us, has made me feel like I know him and your family well.  That being said, if you feel so led, please do continue writing.  I think I can speak for lots of people who have gotten to know Vinny and your family over the years in that we enjoy and are inspired by your writing, and it is a joy to "watch" Desi grow up as well.

Our prayer for you, your family, and Home

Grant them peace, most precious gift of all
Keep the worried world far away and small
When they return, may quiet fill their souls,
Dearest Lord, keep them safe within it's walls.

May the stone be cool beneath their feet.
The canyon breezes circle soft and sweet
When darkness falls, the stars and opal moon
Find them wrapped in each other, ever warm.

May it be a refuge for their love,
A harbor for their deepest prayer.
May they come to flourish in the grove,
Grow ever nearer to You there.

Many a burdened friend in their company rises,
A heavy heart is soon released to fly.
May their table be blessed with laughter and with grace
And by the comfort of kinship be surprised.

May it be a refuge for their love,
A harbor for their deepest prayer.
May they come to flourish in the grove,
Grow ever nearer to You there.

May the cold wind blow far from their front door
May the winter rains never bring them harm
May their hearthfires burn throughout the night
Grant them peace until morning's perfect light.

May it be a refuge for their love,
A harbor for their deepest prayer.
May they come to flourish in the grove,
Grow ever nearer to You there.

Hold fast to Hebrews 6:19 ⚓️ 

Sending you love and hugs

Dear Sarah,


Your posts give me strength, understanding and hope as we are scared and frightened by our future. Emma has relapsed with Rhabdo, found out on May 30. We were devastated to say the least but now we are six weeks into treatment and strength and survival mode have set in. Thank you for your continuos fight for our kids, your giving and caring heart! I think of you often and pray for your strength to continue.


Just wanted to make you aware of her situation. Hope to hear from you soon.


Sincerely,

Amanda Everett & Emma Thornton

Just a note of encouragement to take to heart the knowledge that God's love for you is never ending and His purpose for you is bigger than any problems we could ever struggle with. God promises to fill our needs as we share compassion and His love to others. Even while you walk through the difficult burdens and trials in your life continue to look for opportunities to encourage and uplift others and we know you will be enriched.

But be wise and prepare yourself "Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace." Protect yourself  "In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God," and strengthen yourself  "praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication." Stay on God's focus for you  "To that end keep alert with all perseverance,"  Ephesians 6:14-18 

With a focus on God not promising to always gift us with what we "want" but does promise to provide what He knows we "need," remember with God ALL things truly are possible. May you see fruit of His work on you, with you, though you, and around you.

We continue to cover you in prayer. Hold fast to Hebrews 6:19 ⚓️ 

Sending you love and hugs

Thinking about you today Sarah and praying God Blesses you this Mothers Day. A mother's role as a steward of God's love for the children He places in her care, for whatever amount of time He grants, has a spiritual, emotional, and physical impact on them as many others around you, can last generations, and is full of eternal rewards. Once a Mother always a mother.

God has a special mold He uses when He makes a woman into a Mother. When we are under a heavy burden what we as mankind might see as unworthiness, inadequacies, or flaws, turns out to be what He used to mold you perfectly, with all the special gifts and talents and uniqueness needed within your family to enable you to continue to share His love through you in all situations.  YOU are changing the world one heartbeat at a time.     

may God continue to bless you and your dear family.

Sending you hugs and lifting you up in prayers....

Sarah,

How wonderful that things are looking up for your family.  I told you before that I am once again feeding the birds in my yard and ever so often Vinny pays me a visit.  I find bird poop on the driver's door of my car just below the window (always the gentleman) and never on the window.  I always look up and say "Thanks Vinny".  I think of him often and your family.  Just so happy to read your uplifting post and know things are looking up for everyone.  Its so good to know you are all having a good time.  Its about time for all of you.  Keep up the happy thoughts and thank you so much Vinny for the rainbow - its was amazing!
