Dolores In The Presence of God In Heaven ..

Early this morning, Joe's mom passed into the presence of the Lord shortly after midnight CA time. She was ready to go, and her face in death was truly peaceful.

We are grateful for the Lord's timing on taking her home this weekend while we were here. As Joe's brother Steve said, "It is finished." Her life continues on in the presence of God, and in the arms of those who have gone before her...Grandpa Joe and Grandson Joey.

We are planning to return to Maui tomorrow. Thank you all for the love and prayers that continue to surround us. We love you and appreciate you so much.


I found this on YouTube today. May this be another encouragement to the Johnson's and to everyone reading this blog:

The enemy has been defeated
And death couldn't hold You down
We're gonna lift our voice in victory
We're gonna make Your praises loud

Shout unto God with a voice of triumph
Shout unto God with a voice of praise
Shout unto God with a voice of triumph
We lift your name up, we lift Your name up

Ephesians 6:1-4(TLB)
"Children,obey your parents; this is the right thing to do because God has placed them in authority over you. Honor your father and mother. this is the first of God's Ten Commandments that ends with a promise; that if you honor your father and mother, yours will be a long life, full of blessing. And now a word to you parents. Don't keep on scolding and nagging your children, making them angry and resentful. Rather, bring them up with the loving dicipline the Lord himself approves, with suggestions and Godly advice."

Ephesians 6;1-4(KJV)
"Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right. Honor thy father and mother: which is the first commandment with promise; That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the Earth. And ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord."
