prayer

grieving. . .

 One of my daughter’s best friends (age 17) died Tuesday as a result of an aneurysm – my girl was with her when she collapsed.

My daughter and her friends have been here at our house – clinging to each other, crying, remembering, laughing and then crying again. Their hearts are so open to the love of Jesus and our hope in Him.

My husband will have the funeral on Friday. It will be packed with high school kids. She was a very popular girl – a sweetheart. She will be so missed.

Please pray for her family – her mom, dad and brother. And, if you have a few moments, I know that my husband would appreciate prayer as he ministers to a grieving community tomorrow.

Thank you so much…

  3. So sad, . as I was sitting in the stadium this morning waiting for our outdoor service to begin, I thought of all my blogging friends, wondering what they were facing. I am so sorry for your daughter and for the family and for the whole church community. . . .praying.
