It seems that today I read of many people’s lives that are devastated by tragic loss or sudden life changes.
I read of a little girl whose cancer has returned and at four years of age, has no option than to live her last days surrounded by family and friends.
I read of a man named Chad (http://sadandchara.blogspot.com/2011_02_06_archive.html) whose wife Sara was killed in a car accident and his first-born daughter was delivered 45 minutes after his wife’s death. He ended his blog last night with the following words ~ Miranda Evangelene Cole is taking her first steps tonight…straight into the arms of her mommy and Jesus.
I am keenly aware that around me people are hurting, some physically, some emotionally, some spiritually….all I can continue to pray is “Lord, please show me how I can be a comfort to those who ache, an encouragement to the discouraged and a hope bearer, even in very difficult situations…”
I trust God will be near to each and everyone and let’s continue to reach out and love another well!
