On Friday we laid Pastor to rest in Dallas. We had a great number of friends and family at the burial service. Mike Livengood did a amazing job at the service. He actually quoted Eric several times and it made it so special. The journey of this past week has been exhausting but we are all determined to push forward and do as God and Eric would have us to do. Thank you for reading and blogging to us and know that we will survive. You each were a blessing to us in difficult time and God used you to minister to us. Keep in touch with me. You can email me at msolsen55@gmail.com . God bless you and know that you are blessed with a gift that God has given you. Always use the gift and never take it for granted. I love you and will always be thankful for each of you. Sherry

Pastor's Service

Yesterday was a bitter sweet day. Pastors service was all he wanted and more. In fact it was just like him. We were so touched by your kind words, great food, people hugging us and the beautiful flowers and cards. We are all numb and are not sure what will come next but we do know that God will carry us through. Pastor's service was taped and I am not sure when it will go on the web. We love you and thank you for for loving us. I am on my way to Texas today. God bless you. Love Sherry

Final Amen

This morning at 1:20 Pastor won his battle. He is spending this Sunday in heaven. I knew in my heart that God would take Eric home on his favorite day of the week. Pastor's transition from this earth to heaven was peaceful. He will be missed by all of us but he is healed today. Thank you for loving us and praying for us through this difficult time in our lives. Our faith is greater today knowing we will see him again. Pastor would say to us today" I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. " 2Timothy 4:7. Keep the faith and pay forward what he has taught you. We must continue the fight for Christ. I will post arrangements later. Love Sherry

Wednesday Update

Hello friends I am losing track of when I last blogged. Pastor is slowly declining. He is still concerned for others more than himself. He received a new bed today that is an air bed. It should help with his sore back. I am not sure what the outcome will be in the next couple of days but I do know that God will be victorious. Remember all the amazing things that Pastor has taught each of us and now we are to pay it forward. We can be overcomers in all situations because we are God's children. I am praying for you and I am so thankful for all your prayers and comments. You all are the most wonderful family we could ever ask for and know that Pastor and I love each of you. Sherry

Monday's Update

We missed being with you yesterday. I can promise you we were with you in spirit. We were praying for the service in the mist of all Pastor's struggles. As many of you already know, we have been given only a few more precious moments with Pastor. He is sleeping a great deal. He is not in pain and I thank the Lord for that. Our family is so blessed by your words to us and all of the kind deeds. We have been able to spend every minute with him and not have to worry about other things. Always know we have not given up but we know that what ever direction God chooses to use that Pastor is a winner. His healing will either come here on earth or when he goes to heaven. Remember the sermon Pastor preached not to long ago on I know the plans You have for me. God has plans for Pastor and He also has plans for each of you. Always know we are in the palm of God's hand. Thank you for respecting our time with him. I cannot express how much we love you and are blessed to be or have been your Pastor's. Love Sherry
