A Need...

You're probably aware, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), that I went to worship yesterday, with my church family.

Although I wasn't bringing my granddaughter, A with me, I was happy that her mom, my daughter, B was taking A to church.  Not where I worship, but to another church group.  :) :(

After our worship service was over, I called a friend of mine, P.  I couldn't reach her. 

Even so, I went to the retirement home where she's been staying.  You see, sometimes her phone isn't ringing, so she isn't aware people are calling.

P was there!

We spent some time talking about how upset she is over her husband being so sick.  He's staying in a nursing home.  And, may not live long.

We also talked about how awful it is that her son died.  And, how touching his funeral was.  Yes, I'll discuss it, another day.

Grief isn't easy.

And, love never seems to die.  But, pain lives on.

Even so, God is there for her.  And, will bless her.

For this, I am truly happy.  Even though I also feel sad.

After all, Jesus told us in Matthew 5:4, " Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted."

I truly praise Him for this.

For all who mourn, truly need to be comforted.  Just as He told us we would be.

My friend, please pray for, P.  She truly needs to be encouraged, healed, and comforted.

It isn't easy losing a child.  Especially, when your spouse is on the verge of dying, as well.

Thank you.

May God bless you.


Until next time...
