Bio Photo HOPE for all dear grieving people - for all reasons.

There is a book I highly recommend; or may I say require. Dr. James C. Dobson, "When God Doesn't Make Sense" 2013, Tyndale House Publisher's, Inc. Even as a Christian of 33 years with great faith in Christ, I had lived in gripping fear that Christ would allow me also to be murdered, in my own home, as he did Linda a friend and neighbor. She was also a young mother of two small children.

I had to know WHY. Constantly I begged God to tell me "Why?" did she die that way? I pleaded that he give my soul rest from the mystery and explain it all to me. Why wasn't He answering me? If only I knew the reason, I was sure I would live free from fear.

One sunny afternoon on my patio, after praying "why?" for 33 years without an answer, there on page 88 in the book "I happened to be reading", was the entire answer. In the middle of page 88 was God's answer to me.

I was about to be set free from the mental anguish. It occurred in a way I really didn't expect and the answer was not what I expected.

Quote from page 88, "Probably the most important thing I learned in this entire process is this: I became deeply aware that there were TWO CHOICES that were only up to me to make: One was to continue in my anger from frustration at God and follow the path of miserable despair I was on. The other choice was, to think upon this...His [God's] ways are not always what we would do.... I must chose my personal freedom by only this: TO LET GOD BE GOD! Remember what I always knew: only God knows and " sometimes" its better we don't know. I don't know how all this fits together. But I decided to let God be God. I will never understand all the reasons nor how it all fits together."

I felt a 100,000 pounds weight lift from my shoulders when I too made the decision to let God be God. And leave it at that! Oh that indescribable peace that flooded my soul was like a drink of fresh, cold water. "Let God be God."

Long time no talk to
Hi Sally, Great to hear from you. I was on a short hiatus. But I am back and doing well. Just waiting for the snow to melt so I can be outside again.

I received your message noted below about this record. All I can tell you is that I did not post these links. They were suggested by someone else. If you have other links to replace these, please let me know. If not, I can post your comments on the memorial and you can discuss it with whoever contacts you.

Please let me know how you want to proceed.

Their suggestion:
Hello - on Maria Sauerwine in Eqypt Cemetery, I don't believe her parents are as you have listed NOR her brother Lewis. William Sauerwine and Sarah nee Reuben's child Mary Anna was born Dec 3, 1832. In that case, Lewis would not be connected here.

RE: Thanks
Glad to help,Sally. It was hard on the knees. I had a total knee replacement last February and missed most of the year recovering. Back at it again and looking forward to a full year out filling requests. Have a better year.

Would you please consider transferring Clarissa Harrison Dodson (#35578445) at Scott Cemetery to me. She is my 4th Great Aunt. I'll understand if she is closer to you and want to keep her.
Thank you kindly,

Sally, I found Ida Sauers tombstone today. Next to it...covered by a another tombstone that looks very much like Ida's. I cannot make out the name or dates. Would you like the picture? Maybe you will be able to determine who it is.

Did I ask a question about Ruth Johnson? If I did now I forget what it was.

Dear Sally,

When I get back to the historical society, which I'm not sure when, as I'm presently not researching anything, I'll see what I can do. The books of which I am referencing are not online.
