Comin’ Home

I kissed his precious face last night, not wanting to leave yet.  
We had a rare moment with my Uncle Charles.  He was alert yesterday morning for a time.  I was able to joke with him and love on him.  He knew it was me and said several times that he loves me.  He reached up his whole arm several times and stroked my cheek with it.  My aunt, his wife, was able to call and talk to him on the phone and he knew it was her.  She just had heart surgery, so she hasn’t been able to be with him yet.  By the afternoon he was resting peacefully, but had not waked up any more since our morning time with him. The LORD gave me a very special gift with this man that I love so much.  And I am so thankful to Him for that!!!!!
I must finish packing.
I will be back in Colorado tonight.  Can’t wait to see and hold my little darlin’s.
I can never tell you all how very thankful I am to you for your words of comfort and love!  THANK YOU sweet friends!!!!  I wish I could hug you all, but just imagine that I’m sending you one now!!!! (You too, Josh...thank you.  You are a precious Godly man, and I appreciate you).


  1. Praise God for your time. Praying for you Shonni!

    Much love,

  2. Praying for you to have a safe trip home. I'm so happy for you that you were able to have that time with him to talk. Precious times, I'm sure.

  3. So glad for your special time with your uncle...still praying for you all.

  4. Oh my goodness my beautiful friend. I am so thrilled that had sweet moments with the man your love--what a beautiful gift.

    Hug on those babies and tell them the Salems miss them BAD!

    Sending you all my love tonight.

  5. Hello, I come to you with another heartfelt prayer request on behalf of my friends:http://www.drawnfromwater.org/blog
    They run an orphanage in Ethiopia, and things have been getting tough, considering all the commotion there lately (regarding the orphans).
    Please say a prayer or two on their behalf. Thank you. Love =)

  6. Shonni,
    I am so thankful that God gave you that precious time with your dear uncle...
    Last night, God put you on my heart, and I fell asleep praying for you and your family.

    May our Lord Jesus give you perfect peace!

  7. This time with him is precious, but nothing can compare to the endless days of eternity we will share with Jesus when He comes again. Praying for you and your family.

  8. Praying for you and glad you had this time.
