longing for heaven tonight

This last week has been full of pain on a hundred different levels. For some odd reason, my lyme disease has flared up in a major way. It hurts to walk and it hurts to sit down. It seems impossible to fall asleep at night. I found myself praying for so many different people at 2 in the morning the other night and thought how crazy it was that my sweet E was sound asleep and I still was up past midnight. So, I have been praying for y'all. I feel like every phone call and text I receive is more news of heartache, pain, and tragedy. Oh Lord, it makes me long for heaven. One of my sister's best friends is going through pain that I cannot FATHOM. I have wept over her sweet family. My neighbors who I love so much just found out their baby boy has a rare form of cancer two days ago. He is a beautiful 9 month old baby. Again, Lord have mercy. Please be praying for little Elliott as he begins his journey of chemo in the upcoming weeks. They are such examples to me already...they are so positive and full of hope. Elliott has incredible parents and I'm so thankful they are in my life.

Clinging to this verse for so many people (including myself) tonight...
"He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”
Revelation 21:4
