A Funeral and a Birthday party -the same day.

And I won't be able to go to either...cause my back is still recovering..

There was a sudden death in our extended family just a couple of days ago.The memorial is today..although the body is being autopsied to determine what actually was the cause of death. The man is my Niece's Father in law. He was away on a business trip when he called home from a hotel to let his family know..he thought he had food poisoning. When his son got to the hotel ..he had to ask the manager to open the locked door because when he knocked on it there wasn't an answer. Nicole's husband..Troy found he was too late.His Dad was laying in the bed and had already passed away.:( SOOO sad!

The Birthday party is for Zander.He turned one year old on Nov.3oth but was sick and we weren't able to celebrate it until he got better. He is better and had a check up and is growing and in good health.Praise the Lord! Melissa...Zander's Mom had thought about bringing the party here but we discussed it and I told them that Zander would want me to hold him and pick him up etc..and I would really WANT to be able to and can't...so it might be best for them to have the party at their house. Zander is one of the SWEETEST babies!! He has the cutest smile when he sees me...and now gives me kisses. I asked my Chiropractor how I could resist picking him up and he just looked at me and pointed to the shape I am in now because of it.LOL I guess I had best stay home and recoup.hehe

I have such mixed emotions today. Sadness and Joy...and happy that the Lord is in control of each and every situation. HIS will IS being done whether we believe it or not. Those who BELIEVE it..are at PEACE because they KNOW that ALL things work together for GOOD to those who LOVE GOD and are the CALLED according to HIS purpose. :) I give you PRAISE my LORD!

Thanks so much for stopping by.:)

Hugs,
Valinda

So sorry to hear this sad news. No words can be spoken to relief the pain the family must feel. A sudden death is always sad, but in these days towards the holidays, it seems to hurt even more.
Isn't life strange at times? On one side a person dies and at about the same time a first birthday is celebrated of a child. I understand you mixed feelings.
I sent a little prayer to heaven asking for some extra guidance for the family and peace for the deceased.

I really hope, your back will be a lot better the next days, would be nice to be able to move around "normally" at Christmas!
Crossing my fingers for you, that the Chiropractor will have real magical hands LOL!
Have a lovely day.
Hugs
