One Month Angelversary

Friday, February 27, 2015

Yesterday marked a month...

A month missed of hugs, kisses, smiles.

A month missed of moments, memories, experiences.

One month ago, Everly Hopkins met Jesus.

A month of unending joy, peace, happiness.

A month of perfect knowledge, love, comfort.

While we in our "mind governed by the flesh," we desired more time with her.  We rest in the promise of eternal life with our Savior who died for us.  Died for Everly.  For me.  For you.  While we hold our mortal bodies, we will not begin to understand all of life's mysteries.  And this one we want to understand, grasp, comprehend.  Why?  I have no answers.  I know without a shadow of a doubt, though, that Everly Marie Hopkins is experiencing forever perfect joy with Abba Father. 

So, as we look back over the past month of what we have missed with our sweet Everly, I focus instead what she is experiencing in Heaven.  In this, in the knowledge of our Savior, there is peace.


  1. Amen and amen, beautiful sister in Christ. Thank you for pointing us to Him, even in your grief.

    One of my favorite books of the Bible is Hebrews. Your post reminds me of the first verse of Chapter 11.
    Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.

    Love to you all - Brittney

  2. Thank you for your reminder of that timely verse, Brittney!
