My blog friend, Annette H. lost her dad yesterday after a long illness. Please hold them up in prayer today, especially for her mother and for Annette as they mourn, but not as those without hope. Visit her blog and send her love from her sisters in Christ if you get a chance today. This was a prayer offered in her comments: Jesus, We are told to weep with those who weep. I weep today for my sister in Christ. Touch her Lord. Give her an extra special sense of Your presence. May she have a peace that passes understanding. Lead her through these next few days with Your everlasting arms around her. I know You will Lord for You have promised to do just that. There is nothing that can separate us from Your love. Your love binds us all together. May she be truly comforted with the truth that one day she will see her father again and never have to say good bye. Thank You for our assurance of life everlasting. Thank You for our hope that is You. I ask Your blessing and a special touch of love and comfort upon my friend. Amen.
