Loss

To say that my mind has been swimming lately is an understatement. I'm working on a lengthy post to share my heart, but I have to write in bits and pieces as my family demands (and deserves) so much of my time. That is not what I'm writing about today.
We have lost a beloved sister today. Our sister-in-love, Roxie, lost her battle to a rapid-growing cancer today. Roxie L.O.V.E.S. children and leaves four precious daughters behind, as well as her wonderful husband, Glenn. The last week I have been pleading with the Lord for a miracle. I know His plans are best and His timing is perfect, but it seems so unfair that our Roxie will never see her girls marry or hold her grandchildren. She is now united in Heaven with the precious child they lost years ago. Please ask our Comforter to grant peace to Glenn, Kayleen, Bonnie, Amanda, Suzie and the rest of the family.

I'm so sorry. What a shock. He sees, He cares, He knows. I will say a prayer that they find their new normal and that they cling to Jesus.

I figured there must be something going on as you have not blogged the last few days, so you have already been on my heart and in my prayers. May God give you all peace and comfort that only He can! Love, Tammy E.

I wish I was there to give you a hug right now. I know it wouldn't take away the pain, but could offer a shoulder to cry on. I am so sorry for your loss. Roxie's family will be in our prayers.

Lot of love to you my friend,

Diane
