To all who mourn in Israel, he will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair. In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks that the LORD has planted for his own glory. (Isaiah 61:3 NLT)
Memory to cherish: after surgery when pain was to great to keep at bay with my Rx options due to allergies... I was fighting back tears and losing, Asher saw and said, "are you okay, Mom?". Honestly I answered, "I just feel so weak, honey." He said, "Remember Mom, when we are weak He is strong and you are a child of God." Indeed, I am blessed.
