Wait on the LORD: be of good courage,
and he shall strengthen thine heart;
wait, I say, on the LORD.

The angels are hovering! 12/30/2008
Dear Family,

May the grace and peace of God through our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ be with us today and always!

KJV John 14:27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.

Luke 2:25 And, behold, there was a man in Jerusalem, whose name was Simeon; and the same man was just and devout, waiting for the consolation of Israel: and the Holy Ghost was upon him. And it was revealed unto him by the Holy Ghost, that he should not see death, before he had seen the Lord's Christ. And he came by the Spirit into the temple: and when the parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him after the custom of the law,
Then took he him up in his arms, and blessed God, and said, Lord, now lettest thou thy servant depart in peace, according to thy word: For mine eyes have seen thy salvation, Which thou hast prepared before the face of all people; A light to lighten the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.
And Joseph and his mother marvelled at those things which were spoken of him. And Simeon blessed them, and said unto Mary his mother, Behold, this child is set for the fall and rising again of many in Israel; and for a sign which shall be spoken against; (Yea, a sword shall pierce through thy own soul also,) that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.

As I write this morning, my wife is at her mother's bedside in New Hampshire, where it is becoming increasingly apparent that her mother is soon going to be gathered up by the angels of God, who are continually praising God around his throne awaiting their dispatch to go and bring back with them those who have come to know and experience His peace. My dear mother-in-law eagerly is awaiting that time, but it is a difficult time for her as she has a lot of pain due to the recent hip fracture. Lord, thank you for the grace and favor that you have extended to my dear mother-in-law, for she has been a blessing to so many, to me and my family, to her neighbors..... Lord, may it be that she would rest in the peace that is understood only by the revelation of the Holy Spirit through your Word. May she see and hear in her family the loving and caring heart, eyes and hands of Jesus, as they minister to the one who has blessed them so richly in Christ Jesus. And may this ministering to her by her loving family be unto her as a warm balm of comfort and assurance. Our Dear Father in heaven, as you allow her to depart in peace, according to your word, may all glory for her life and testimony be unto you, who have loved us and given yourself for us in your Son!

May her homegoing be an encouragement to all of us who are still waiting and watching for the time when we will receive the summons to go home forever. In Jesus name, Amen.

If you wish to follow Mummu's on her way home, go to the Caringbridge site of inamaesomero.

In Christ,

Pastor Orval Wirkkala
