I need you

I need my sweet readers to do me a favor today. I need you to lift up one of my very best friend's family. Pray over them, if you would.

My best friend lost her sister in a terrible train accident last week. Our hearts are broken, we're all extremely sad and a family is without one of it's members today.

Life is so precious...and so short. Sarah was a beautiful young woman with SO much talent and FULL of life. Everyone truly loved her. She was so incredibly special. The world lost a really good one when she passed away.

I hope that you'll join me in praying for healing and comfort for their family. Peace knowing that God took Sarah home because He needed her more than we did here on Earth.

I know that Sarah won't ever be forgotten and the lives that she has impacted is many. You should see her facebook page. It's FULL of the sweetest comments about her. Many, many people thought very highly of Sarah.

My heart aches thinking of my best friend, Rebecca, going through the loss of her sister. I wish I had all the right words to say to her, but I don't. Even though I probably won't ever find the right words to say to her, I know that the Lord hears my prayers and will comfort Rebecca and her whole family through what has to be the most difficult time in their lives.

Rebecca's dad plays piano beautifully and when I walked in after the accident their whole house was filled with beautiful sounds. I leave you with those words today.

I see trees of green,
red roses too.
I see them bloom,
for me and you.
And I think to myself,
what a wonderful world.

I see skies of blue,
And clouds of white.
The bright blessed day,
The dark sacred night.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

The colors of the rainbow,
So pretty in the sky.
Are also on the faces,
Of people going by,
I see friends shaking hands.
Saying, "How do you do?"
They're really saying,
"I love you".

I hear babies cry,
I watch them grow,
They'll learn much more,
Than I'll ever know.
And I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

Yes, I think to myself,
What a wonderful world.

  2. Praying for you and their family! My best friend lost her brother a little over a year ago, it's hard to see a friend go through so much pain, and finding the right things to say can be difficult as well. I'm sure that The Lord will give you the right words and the right time to say what you need to.
