A Time to Mourn

The sudden passing of a good friend and mentor has knocked the wind out of me today. I know that we can rejoice in knowing that she is having a ball in His presence, but it's just right to mourn. She is already missed. 

She'll be forever remembered as 
a soft voice, ready to encourage
small, piercing eyes that listened as much as her ears
a childlike chuckle
an uncomplaining attitude
a steadfast friend.

Feeling like she's a woman you wish you knew? Follow her daughter's blog, Unending Peace, and join us in praying for her family. It's difficult to understand God's purposes amidst all that this family is currently struggling through. Pray against the temptation to self-pity, bitterness, hopelessness or anything short of staying close to God's grip. 

And mourning along with our old church family in Texas
