Just as God commanded the Israelites in Joshua 4 to gather stones of remembrance,
and as He had them place stones of remembrance in the priests' robes (Exodus 28 and 39),
we, too, have stones of remembrance for Jerard.
The day after Jerard was buried, James and I encircled the grave site with stones. We also brought some of them home as a remembrance of Jerard.
Today, when I visited the grave site, I was pleased to find his grave stone had been placed on his grave.
2 Cor. 5:8...to be absent from the body, and to be present
with the Lord.
Glad Jerard is present with Jesus. But missing him deeply here.
