Oh Sweet Jesus.....

Today I went to the funeral for my friend's rambunctious gorgeous 4 year old daughter. She passed away Tuesday in a drowning accident. It was heart wrenching. When I first got there, my pastor gave me a hug & said, " I just keep thinking back to us in the van & you yelling David's name." I always seemed to be fussing at David about something. Oh, to go back to those days.
As I sat there in that sanctuary full of family & friends all there to mourn the loss of this little bright light & to support David & Amy, I thought "How am I old enough to be watching people my age...My friends...Bury their child? Isn't this what my parents do? Not me. I don't like being a grown up."

My heart is broken....And the tears won's stop today.

David posted this verse the other day on facebook...

The righteous perish, and no one takes it to heart; the devout are taken away, and no one understands that the righteous are taken away to be spared from evil. ~Isaiah 57:1

Lord, please allow them to find all of their comfort & peace in You. Wrap Your arms around them & guide them through these difficult days ahead, while they find their "new normal."

If you are reading this....Please say a prayer for this family...For David, Amy & Gabe (he's 8).
