Here we are.
Five years ago we surrounded Doug and prayed over him. We prayed that he could breathe. He was struggling so badly. We prayed that God’s will would be done. We cried. We loved on him. I went to bed after midnight and at 1:28am God took him home.
It still seems unreal! Sometimes it seems like it was yesterday and other times it feels like a lifetime!
I was fortunate to call him brother. We had a very special relationship. He made me laugh! I cried and prayed over him when he was making poor life decisions! I am so thankful for those special people who prayed fiercely for Doug. People besides my parents.
Cyndy Morris, you are one of those people. Who were our “Virginia mom” and I know you spent hours on your knees praying for Doug’s salvation. I love you!
I am forever grateful to Rob and Amy Reardon. You were pastors who took Doug under your wing. You invited him to Sunday school and coffee. You watched him change into the God loving man he became.
There are many more but these special people come to my mind. Because of the prayers and actions of God’s people I am confident that Doug resides in heaven with the Father and that is the only thing that eases the pain.
