Jackie’s Story

Site created on January 28, 2020

We are cast down, but not destroyed. We are perplexed, but not in despair. Persecuted by this wretched cancer, but not forsaken.  Our Father God has the situation well in hand. Thank you for your care and prayers! ...Death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing but the limit of our sight...

In Memoriam for H. Spafford "We seem to give him back to Thee, dear God, who gavest him to us.  Yet as Thou didst not lose him in giving, so we have not lost him by his return.  Not as the world giveth, givest Thou, O Lover of souls!  What Thou givest, Thou takest not away.  For what is Thine is ours always:  if we are Thine.  And life is eternal, and love is immortal: and death is only a horizon; and a horizon is nothing but the limit of our sight!  Lift us up, strong Son of God, that we may further see; cleanse our eyes that we may see more clearly; draw us closer to Thyself, that we may know ourselves nearer to our beloved ones who are with Thee.  And while thou dost prepare a place for us, prepare us for that happy place, that where they are, and Thou art, we too may be, in inseparable bliss, forever."
Reading that changed my whole outlook. 💞
