I’m saddened to post today’s blog. 6 days ago my big sister, the only remaining (blood) sibling I had went home to be with Jesus. I’m sad because I won’t see her again in THIS life. I won’t get to take her to Red Lobster anymore. I won’t get to hear her call me “Toot” anymore. She’s gone.
I watched her suffer for nearly a year. I prayed and cried so much that God would heal her. But it seemed like the more I prayed, the worse she became. I never stopped praying. She and I prayed together. We made plans. I was supposed to spend the night at her NEW HOME when she got out of the hospital. Yet, I prayed…God, heal my sister. She’s gone.
On Thursday, September 13, 2018 at 10:45pm, I stood and watched my sister take her last breath. I could no longer pray and ask God to heal her. She was gone. I didn’t get angry at God. I didn’t question his sovereignty. I simply thanked Him for answering my prayers for her healing. I know you may think I’ve lost my mind for saying that, but I haven’t. My prayer was that God would heal her, and He did just what I asked Him to. He healed her by releasing her from that body. That night, when she stopped breathing and her heart stopped, SHE WAS HEALED! She made it to her NEW HOME! Thank you Father.
So allow me to say to anyone that may be experiencing the worst in life, God knows, He cares and He will come. Don’t ever stop thanking and praising Him, for He does ALL things well. And SOMEHOW, He will get the glory out of your circumstances. Hold on. Be strong. You WILL get through this! No matter how dark the night is for you right now, be confident and know that there WILL be glory after this!
In Loving memory of my big sister.

Your little brother will never forget you.
