This Morning

This morning, a sweet young lady we have been praying for
over the last few years was called home to heaven.  She was nineteen.
In recent months, she has been battling cancer for the second time.

We learned this distressing news early this afternoon,
and I couldn't let this day end without expressing our deepest sorrow. 
Her Mom is my precious friend.  So, we grieve with them and for them. 

The grieving process can be very intenseAnd, intensely personal.
The family of this lovely girl knows the Lord and has Him as their firm foundation.
It is such a comfort to know that they are relying on Him in the midst of sorrow.
Would you join with us in lifting this family up to our Saviour in prayer
as they navigate these deep waters with the Lord, and with one another?
 Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

"And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes;  and there shall be no more death, 
neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; 
for the former things are passed away."  Revelation 21:4
With Love, Camille

Sorry to hear of this loss. Praying for you. I am saddened as an old friend of mine died a week ago, in Iowa. We grew up together and I helped her come to know the Lord, over the years. It's a long story. Sad that she died but glad that there is the promise of heaven all because Jesus loved us so much to die on the cross for us. I think of Evelyn quite a bit. Hugs and prayers, my friend.

So sorry to hear about this. Will be lifting them in prayer!

Praying for you as well, as your family minsters to them in this loss.

"Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ's sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too." - 2 Cor. 1:3-5

Oh dear Camille. I am saddened to hear of your friends loss this morning. I do pray they will strive to keep their eyes on Christ on this most hard trial they are facing. I will pray God will use this to draw them closer to Him in this time and they would feel His comfort and peace that can ONLY come from Christ.
Praying for you as it may stir up emotions of freshly losing your precious Austin. I will also pray God will use you to be an encouragement to them through this walk.

I am so sorry for their loss....what a tragic occurrence. What a beautiful thing to know they are finding comfort in God and His sovereignty in all things. Truly, I don't know how unbelievers get through difficult times for only Christians know what true comfort is. xo
