How blessed we are to have friends who lift us up, who speak truth to us, who listen, give advice, encouragement and their constant prayers. This is richness; this is true treasure to have such wonderful women in your life.

Pray for our friend, Lynn

Hello girls,

I just received a phone call from Lynn, one of the ladies who has joined us on the blog this summer.  She just lost her dad this morning and, of course, is pretty devastated.  Her dad had been having some health problems recently but seemed to be growing stronger lately.  He was out on a walk in the mountains with a cousin when he died early this morning.  I know that I don't even need to tell you girls how to pray...we have all suffered loss and know the needs.  I just wanted to let you know that our sweet sister and her family are in need of prayer.  I know that Lynn is grateful for your loving support....

  2. Dear Lynn,

    My heart goes out to you as my own father died unexpectedly eight years ago this very month.

    Like you, I had a good relationship with my dad so there were no regrets. But the loss was so hard to fathom. The urge to "pick up the phone and call" takes time to subside. The thought "I want to tell my dad about this" comes up before you have time to remember he's gone. It leaves a sad ache inside.

    But Jesus understands. He wept when Lazarus died...and He knew He was going to raise him from the dead. I believe it's because as a man, He felt the true emotional loss of the death of someone close. Which means He sympathizes with our loss as well.

    May God be the source of all comfort as you and your family go through this time of mourning.

    Looking to give you a big hug at church when you return.

    In His love - Diane

  3. Dear Lynn,

    You have been constantly on my heart these past days. My prayers for you and your family are for comfort, peace and even joy in the midst of mourning the loss of your dad.

    One thing I do know is that you have been a blessing for your family back in North Carolina. I am sure they have been grateful to have you with them during this time.

    Love to you, my friend.


  4. I would like to thank everyone who lifted up my family in prayer during this difficult time. We truly felt surrounded by God's presence and peace. I will miss my dad, for sure, but I know it will be soon enough we meet again in glory.. I appreciate all of you more than you know.
