Thursday Blues

As days of the week go, Thursday is not my favorite. It used to rank fairly high. But in the last month+, it has fallen drastically.

Five weeks ago today, my precious princess spoke her last words to me. It was the day after her surgery on her legs, and I still don't know for sure if she asked me, "My legs?" or "Malaya?" So I assured her Malaya was OK, and spoke to her as she drifted back to sleep. I am convinced that the next day, the brain lesion had taken her from us, although her body passed on Monday.

One month ago today, we buried Jenny. It was the most beautiful memorial service I have ever been at. The outpouring of love carried us through that day. But, oh, the grief!

One day at a time. One step at a time.

While we are left to "Only Imagine", she is dancing before our Savior.

I hope you are still feeling the outpouring of love. Prayers continue to be lifted to the Father on behalf of the family.

I love you brother.

That memorial service was one of the most touching and intensely personal times of worsip I've ever witnessed. I want my celebration of life to be characterized like that. Jenny Bizaillion was such a heaven-sent minister of His passion, His truth, and His overwhelming joy. Josh's words to the devil are so endelibly inscribed on my heart.

Know that you are prayed for daily, hour-by-hour. You are deeply loved. May you know God's intense love for you. I'm asking Him to overshadow you and overwhelm you with and intese knowing of the Presence of the Lord. Blessings to you, brother! I'm contending for you and your family today. Rest in God's certainty and His sufficiency.

Rick, I continue to be so sorry for your loss. I still pray for you and Beverly and David, Malaya and Jenny's brothers. You are all on my thoughts constantly.

I too believe she is dancing before our Savior.

Much sadness, love and respect for you and your family.

It has been one month, and there has not been one day that has gone by, that I don't speak of Your Sweet Jenny. She changed my life in so many ways, and my life will never be the same. My heart still aches for you and your wife, Malaya, and David. And prayers are still be said and sent your way.

It was also the most beautiful service I have ever attended.
