Thankful Thursday

I am thankful for a thoughtful son who saw this at the funeral home, loved it and snapped a photo on his cell phone.


I am thankful that he shared it with me.

I am thankful for the feelings of truth that it stirs in me.

A once, old and tired woman crosses the veil to the other side as a vibrant young woman in her prime headed straight into the outreached arms of her Savior.

I love this.

It makes me feel calm and thankful.

WOW! Sometimes I just need a visual to remind me of all that awaits. It is very comforting.

I love that statue! I have only seen it from the door. My sister had gone to a funeral there and told me about it. We went to see it but the door was lock. Beautiful Statue! It speaks a thousand words!
