Yesterday was exactly one month to the day that Susana went home to be with Jesus. I thought that it would be a very hard day because of that, but it wasn’t. I just thought much of the joy that she must be experiencing being able to see Jesus face to face.
I came across this video on my phone that I had totally forgotten that I took while we were in Florida on our Disney trip. It is so hard to believe that just over a week after this video, she went home to heaven. She had such a precious beautiful singing voice. I’m sure she is singing her heart out right now in the presence of her great and mighty King! Our hearts have been comforted much in the last few days as we get more of a concrete reality that our little girl is alive and well. She is whole. She is complete. And she has become part of the great cloud of witnesses that cheer us on from heaven. My little girl sees us and is our biggest cheerleader! Oh how that makes me want to run in such a way that brings glory to God.
This post is dedicated to her Aunt Kerri-Anne, who taught her this song and sang it with her many times. Kerri-Anne, she loved you so much. The sleepover that you had with her in Florida was probably the highlight of her trip. I am praying for you as you seek to draw closer to God and understand His power, love, mercy, and truth. May you come to know further of the gift of eternal life that is given to those who trust in Jesus alone for their salvation. There truly is no other way. This is what Susana knew. And I want you to know that she prayed often for you specifically – that you too would come to know Jesus. Her specific prayer – “God, please help Aunt Kewwi-Anne become a Christian, In Jesus’ name. Amen” I’m sure that she was looking down from Heaven on the day of her Homecoming Celebration when she saw you stand to pray to receive Jesus’s gift of salvation. And I know that she is cheering you on in your pursuit of knowing Him. Thanks for being the best aunt in the world!
