Her Story Continues

November 27, 2008

The house is quiet. We've eaten our share of turkey and have had our naps. What do we do now? We move on putting one foot in front of the other, I feel the need to walk again. Walk through these days of grief and sorrow, love and laughter remembering Danni and allowing God to begin the healing in us now.

Tomorrow we will have a meeting with the funeral home and I will post the specifics for anyone who wishes to attend. All are welcome.

Thank you for all the beautiful thoughts and prayers. God hasn't let us down he has a bigger plan. I will continue to journal this journey to help bring healing to myself and others. This is simply a new chapter, one of grief and healing.

I am thankful today that Danni is in no pain, that she runs with the Father through green fields and cool streams. I am thankful for Jessi, Atlee, Mallorie and Wes. I'm thankful for wonderful friends who are willing to walk through fire with me!

I'm thankful for the power of the Holy Spirit that lives in me and picks me up to carry me during this time of sorrow, he is the one who guides me on. Jesus will sustain me.

He will carry me like a lamb over his shoulders, I am so thankful for that.

We are like iron that has been heated and shaped then plunged into water to bring strenghth to the shape only to be heated again and shaped again and plunged again until we are the perfect tool in the craftsman's hand. For this I am thankful.

Use me Lord. Use us Lord, further your kingdom...Amen.

Dear Frains and Minnicks<

I know what its like to lose someone so close to you. All that you've been through and now Danni's with God. I just want you all to know I (we) love you all, and yes, put one foot in front of the other, and love each other more than you have ever loved each other before, and let God carry you through, you and I know he will, with the "lamp upon my feet".
And don't forget, your not alone!

p.s. I wonder how many Jewls are in danni's crown!

God bless you all!
Love the Hyser's

What a privelege from the Lord when he gave you Danni to care for nineteen years ago. He knew then what was going to happen and he knew she needed someone very special to take care of her. Christy, I think Danni was very priveleged to have you for her Mother. Your faith through this journey has been so incredible, yet again the Lord knew he needed you to be that person. We will continue to lift your family in prayer. You have shared your innermost feelings with so many and touched countless lives. We pray for healing, comfort, and rest in the coming days. God Bless You!!
