|Let the memory of Maurice be with us forever|
"Hi Reese Just want to tell you how much I love you. Bri has grown to a gorgeous girl who takes care of her grandmother and grandfather. Ja iis in school but do not talk to him much. My prayer is that he is growing into a happy young man. We miss you and love you and know that you are at peace."
"God always reminds me of this date - May 1, 2015. I continue to pray and remember Maurice and entire Acey family along with Deacon Elihu and Rev. Naomi Jones. The Lord our God continues to be our comforter and strength. I give tribute and honor to Maurice life and rememberance at this time as Mother's Day also approaches. We look forward to seeing him again. In Prayer - Mary Ann Smith"
"Hi Maurice just want to say how much. I miss you. I am still trying to keep this family together. I have seen Henry and we talk about it you alot. Spend alot of time with Bri who is d oing well working and hoing to school you would be proud. Ja is finally back on honor roll and looking and acting like you. We all miss but we know God has you in His hand. Love mom and pop pop."
"Good morning my brother...it's been 4 years and I can still hardly believe that you're gone. It's been rough but we hold onto each other and do our very best to be there for one another. I love you and I hope you're resting in peace."
"As I read my Daily Devotions, I thought about my son Maurice whose birthday is today. We lost Maurice On May 2011 to violence In Philadelphia who we have since, never heard anything about his killer. However, it is funny how God works. I had a sudden sadness come over me. I also had some disappointment in my class I am taking and a lot of illness recently but in this, I did not let the devil get the victory. I read this devotional and it made me think of others who may be going through the same and hoped this would bless them as it blessed me.
Enjoying Peace in His Presence
I AM WITH YOU. I AM WITH YO. I AM WITH YOU. Heaven’s bells continually peal with that promise of My Presence. Some people never hear those bells because their minds are earthbound and their hearts are closed to Me. Others hear the bells only once or twice in their lifetimes, in rare moments of seeking Me above all else. My desire is that My “sheep” hear My voice continually, for I am the ever- present Shepherd.
Quietness is the classroom where you learn to hear My voice. Beginners need a quiet place in order to still their minds. As you advance in this discipline, you gradually learn to carry the stillness with you wherever you go. When you step back into the mainstream of life, strain to hear those glorious bells: I am with you. I am with you. I am with you.
Jeremiah 29:12-13New International Version (NIV)
12 Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. 13 You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
John 10:14New International Version (NIV)
14 “I am the good shepherd; I know my sheep and my sheep know me—
John 10:27-28New International Version (NIV)
27 My sheep listen to my voice; I know them, and they follow me. 28 I give them eternal life, and they shall never perish; no one will snatch them out of my hand."
"Its been three years and my heart still feels connected. Its hard to breathe when someone you love is taken. Your family has keep the promise and has taken care of Jaah-Fir and I. This year I will do my best to reconnect with our baby girl. Our son is getting stronger each day despite not have you here He enjoys sharing stories about your voice, your laugh, your walk, and your potty mouth. His is learning how to manage his pain. Uncle Vencent has stepped in. I call he comes. I pray each night that you contiue to watch over our kids. Until we meet in my sleep rest well baby. I will be forever in love with you."
"Ma misses you! Every day I think about you. Today is mother/s day/ Your children are fine and Briannah will be coming to nursing school with me. She has grown very pretty and looks just like you and so does Ja he is so tall and handsome. I can see his going to be a ladies man.
