Dear blogging friends~

Please keep our family in your prayers as we struggle through this Christmas season.  Yesterday my husband's dear brother was killed in a work accident.  Our hearts are broken and we miss him dearly.

Thank you~

PRAYER< Oh Dear LORD, We need you to comfort this entire family that has lost their beloved brother, son, father and worker. LORD, by Your Spirit, comfort each family member and be in their presence in a strong and powerful way, that they can feel your Peace, and give You glory and Honor in this time of shock, grief and suffering! Thank you LORD for the big picture that you have for each of our lives, but we can only see the daily picture, and it is only in Faith in YOU that we know You have a greater plan for our lives. Give this grieving family the bigger picture by Faith in Your LOVE and in Your Name. Amen!

Ruth, I literally was surfing the blogger site, and came across your site, and read your blog today! Please know that the LORD is with your family, and that I am in sorrow with you! God bless you always and in during this holiday.

Dear Ruth,
My most heartfelt sympathies for your loss of such a close loved one, and I pray that the Lord will help you through this trying time during His son's birth with thoughts of peace and love and hope. I haven't followed your blog for very long, but I enjoy your writing and hope that your hearts will heal and be bright again soon.

I know we are all put here with a mission but it's so hard to understand when someone is taken away so soon. :0(
