Candle




I wanted to share a photo of my beautiful candle that was made for Nicoda. All of the flowers from the funeral were sent to a company that pressed them and made them into a hollow oil burning candle. It is so beautiful and I love that his flowers were able to be saved! I have the candle on my shelf with some of his other items, so I can see them each day.

What a beautiful candle! I loved seeing it and all of the pictures and things you have out. So wish I had a way to come and see you. I would LOVE to live closer. You are an amazing person. I am so truly blessed to have you as my friend. You are in our prayers.

We count those blessed who endured. You have heard of the endurance of Job and have seen the outcome of the Lord's dealings, that the Lord is full of compassion and is merciful. Jas 5:11 -

He will wipe away every tear from their eyes; and there will no longer be any death; there will no longer be any mourning, or crying, or pain; the first things have passed away." Re 21:4

I know you are having a really hard time and I just wanted to encourage you to stay strong. Here are a few scriptures that I felt could help a weary heart. I long for the day when our tears will be wiped and we will feel no pain. What a beautiful thought, That God loves us that much!
I love you dear friend,
Amanda
