  2. Hi Sandra. You called my home today asking to speak with my son Aaron. You may recall I told you he has been missing for almost 9 years. Thank you for your prayers and concerns, as a fellow believer it is very encouraging. If you would like you may take a look at our website weloveyouaaron.com or visit our Facebook page “Aaron Grainger Missing”. May God richly bless you and all you put your hand to. Anita

    • Hi Anita . . . thank you so much for your kind note. I do not believe it was a mistake that I called you today (twice, as a matter of fact) . . . and I’m so glad I did and that we met today! I cannot imagine the sense of loss you continually deal with, wrapped together with hope and expectation for the future. My own faith has been tried and tested many times throughout my life and I do know this . . . that God is faithful. I visited both your website and also your Face Book page and it did not surprise me we have a couple of friends in common. Both Christina Williams (whom I have known for over 12 years) and also Marzette Hanoian. In fact, I’m actually one of the speakers for Christina’s ministry, Elevated to Excellence. It certainly is a small world!
      After praying today, I did felt led to share the following scriptures with you. I hope they minister to you and breath fresh air into your life!
      Ezekiel 34:11-16 from the MESSAGE – “‘God, the Master, says: From now on, I myself am the shepherd. I’m going looking for them. As shepherds go after their flocks when they get scattered, I’m going after my sheep. I’ll rescue them from all the places they’ve been scattered to in the storms. I’ll bring them back from foreign peoples, gather them from foreign countries, and bring them back to their home country. I’ll feed them on the mountains of Israel, along the streams, among their own people. I’ll lead them into lush pasture so they can roam the mountain pastures of Israel, graze at leisure, feed in the rich pastures on the mountains of Israel. And I myself will be the shepherd of my sheep. I myself will make sure they get plenty of rest. I’ll go after the lost, I’ll collect the strays, I’ll doctor the injured, I’ll build up the weak ones and oversee the strong ones so they’re not exploited.


      Psalm 27:13-14 NIV –
      13 I remain confident of this:
      I will see the goodness of the Lord
      in the land of the living.
      14 Wait for the Lord;
      be strong and take heart
      and wait for the Lord.

      I will stand on this promise with you Anita . . . That you WILL see the GOODNESS OF THE LORD IN THE LAND OF THE LIVING and see your precious son again!

      And, of course, my blog site which you found. I will call you every month to see how you’re doing. I know that you know you are not standing alone, but it always helps to know you have one more prayer warrior on your side.

      May God keep you in His perfect peace!


  3. Hi Sandra, thank you for the scriptures. God’s Word is what has sustained my husband and I through this trial, and we are so grateful. I do believe your call to our home was a diving appointment. Blessings (new) friend! Anita
