I was looking through pictures for a few minutes and ran across this one.  I probably shared it a long time ago, but I just had to share it again..

This, to me, is what Heaven will be like.

Families reunited.

Joy that makes you jump.

Smiles that don’t hold back.

Nick with us again.

The only one missing is Adrienne, and I can just see her there with us too!!!

This picture was taken by Amy (her link is to the right) the day before Nick’s MRI that truly began our final nightmare in May of 2008.  Nick had already been through at least six brain surgeries before this time, but truly after this day our lives were never the same.

Nick became sicker and sicker over the next six months and went Home on November 29th of that same year.

But, I thank God even now for this memory… and this picture.

Oh, I am so thankful to have this treasure.

I’m heading to bed, but I just had to share this with all of you for some reason.  I hope it speaks joy to someone who stops by.

PHILIPPIANS 4:4 has been my favorite verse for as long as I can remember,

Rejoice in the Lord always;

again I say, Rejoice!

If Paul could write these words from a dark, cold prison cell, surely I can write them tonight.

Jumping for Joy only Because I Know Who Holds My Hand,
