Over the weekend, my brother’s wife went to heaven.
Mishelle was a beautiful girl who made him very very happy. She was a strong woman of God, and never hesitated to tell you about it (or anything else she was thinking). :)
Her and I bonded over nails. She was a huge fan of those Sally Hansen nail applications that allowed you to wear different patterns. I loved looking for those and nail polish that I thought she might like.
She was also a big fan of animal print, I know I’ll think of her whenever I see certain leopard patterns that I know she liked.
We know without a shadow of a doubt that she’s in heaven, and we rejoice in the fact that she’s no longer in pain. We also put our hope in God who will carry my brother throughout this difficult time and beyond.
The one thing I’ve continued to think throughout this process is how thankful I am for the hope we have in the Lord. I can’t imaging going through anything like this without that hope, without the assurance that she is in heaven, and without the underlying peace that comes with knowing that God is in control.
I know for certain that Mishelle would give me a disapproving look if I didn’t use this as an opportunity to get someone saved! :) So if you are living without that assurance of where you’ll go when you die, and even without that underlying peace that comes with a relationship with God, then get it today!
Pray this prayer…
Jesus, I take You today as my Lord and Savior. I give my life to You, to serve You today and forever. Sin -Satan- I turn my back on you. You are not my Lord. Jesus is my Lord. Thank You God for cleansing me of all my sin by your shed blood and receiving me into Your Kingdom. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.

I look forward to seeing Mishelle and you in heaven one day :)
