Last night our 5 year old little boy was saying his prayers and he said, "and please bless we sleep good, and please bless Brooke, and please help us not hit people . . ." After the prayer I said, "I thought I told you, Brook passed away, she is in heaven now." He gave me this weird look and said, "I know." It never occurred to him that just because she passed away that we should stop praying for her. I think in our home we will still pray for Brooke in heaven for quite some time.
I hope that everyone who has hoped and prayed for our sweet little Brooke can feel some measure of the peace and grace we feel now. I know it is because of your powerful prayers and the mercy of God. Today I have felt light and happy. Never in a million years would I have ever thought that I would use those words to describe my heart on a day like today. But I have. I have felt lifted and floated. I have felt very close to the veil, and received wonderful spiritual impressions of the joy, beauty and love in the place where Brooke is now. We feel that her spirit has left her body, and that she is in the arms of our loving Savior, and with family that loves and cherishes her.
