Many of you have probably been following the news coverage about the passing of First Lady Barbara Bush. Regardless of your political beliefs, I think we can all agree Mrs. Bush left her mark on this country in a truly unique way.
While we have laughed at video clips and took to heart many of her quotes that have been shared on social media, I ran across this photo today and it nearly stopped me in my tracks. A kind stranger had created this photo for the Bush family and I believe it speaks loud. During this sad time, we are also reminded it is a time to rejoice!
Some of you may know that President and Mrs. Bush had a daughter, Robin, that passed away at the age of 3 after a short battle with leukemia. I can not begin to imagine the heartache she felt after losing a child. But oh what JOY she felt this week when they were reunited!
I am so thankful that, although I have not felt the pain of losing a child, I will experience the joy of being reunited with my family after this life. Thank you, Jesus, for this truth! This photo was the perfect reminder that, for those of us that believe, there is joy when this life is over!
