July Moments

It's hard to put in words what July has been for us, these photos tell some of the story

July was about family, those close and those far away

There were moments of laughter and tears

It was about trusting God

Much grace was poured on us through it all, the Lord has been faithful in so many ways

It was the month we said good-bye  to my father-in law




This photo was taken July 2010, it represented three generations, my father-in-law, my husband and sons.

Those are priceless...those moments when God proves Himself faithful, even though we have known that He is!

I am so sorry to hear of your father-in-law's passing. Those are hard times. I don't think we're ever really ready to say good-bye to the ones we love. We must simply trust God that His timing is perfect. My own father-in-law passed away rather suddenly in July 2011...yes, hard times. May God continue to show His grace to your family...

Thank you for "gathering" and for sharing these moments, both the happy and the sad. Hugs...

I too am sorry to hear about the passing of your father-in-law. And I agree with Cheryl. No matter what the age it is never easy to say good-bye. Praying the God wraps His arms of comfort around you all, and your memories are sweet and lasting. HUGS

Laughter and grief. They run so close together. God is merciful to have provided both for us. Your loss is painful and I am sorry for it. May your hearts know peace as you move forward.

Your pictures say it all. I'm so sorry for your loss, and yet I trust he is safely at home. It is always emotion packed, no matter how old or ill a loved one is. Blessings to you and your family as you move forward.
