Our loss is Heaven's gain!

My precious daughter, Amy, has gone home to be with Jesus. She is free now to walk and run and talk and sing, and I cannot adequately express the joy that is felt in knowing that her heavenly Father heard her first words while she ran into His arms with abandon! My heart, at the same time, hurts so badly, feels such sorrow that on this side of Heaven I will never hold her hand, hear her giggle, or give me a choke hold hug again.

I appreciate prayer for my family. God has placed so many wonderful people in our path this past week and I have every confidence that He will continue to do so. But for the time being, I am going to stop posting and concentrate on my husband and three remaining children.

May God bless each of you!


  1. What a beautiful picture. I'm sorry to hear this, but I hope you find much comfort through your faith. Thinking of you and your family.

  2. Dear Anne,
    I am so sorry. Let God's Word be with you and let His promise of eternal life together be of comfort.

    Dear Lord,
    please hear my simple prayer for Amy. Hold her hand all the way home, and keep up with her while she skips through your heavenly gardens and runs in your beautiful fields. Let the angels come round to play with her, and let her family and friends and pets gather together to welcome her. I ask this in Your Blessed Name. Amen

  3. Anne, we don't know the lives of so many around us, including our online friends. I'm touched by your post today, the love for your daughter, and hear your message of the mingling of joy and sorrow in the loss. We look forward to your return and pray for you and your family until then.

  4. So sorry to hear of your loss Anne. What a beautiful post. I'll keep you and your family in my prayers.

  5. I don't know you here on earth, Anne, but we're already sisters as far as the Lord is concerned, and I'll recognize you immediately in Heaven, just as I will your Amy. Thank You, Lord, for the HOPE of Heaven. You and your family are in my prayers.


  6. My dear sweet sister Anne,
    My heart rejoices knowing Amy is wrapped in the arms of Jesus! My heart breaks for those who have been left behind. We know that some day we will see Amy again, that is the hope we have in Jesus. I love you and I will see you soon. xoxox Suzy
