Life Is Too Short...

Thursday, November 21, 2013

A dear friend died this morning. She was just a few years older than I am. We grew up next door neighbors & growing up she and my older sister were best friends. It`s always hard losing a loved one but for some reason it`s so much harder when someone dies young. We somehow feel cheated. I`m sure she thought she`d live at least another 40 years, yet she has been taken away in the prime of her life. It just really made me think of how short life really is...

    This is why, no matter what work I think needs to be done, I never ignore my son's plea, "Will you play with me?" If something happens to me, I want him to remember all the fun we had together, not all the work I did.

    I wish I can take away your pain. But I know that, in time, God will, and you will be left with the wonderful memories that you have of your friend. In time, you will again be together. Thank you for the wonderful Bible quotes. I love having them handy to remind me that God is with me.

    Sorry for your loss of a childhood friend, and you are right, it does somehow seem so much worse when they are so young.

    It is hard to lose someone that you love. I know my husband passed this February. He was 57 emoticon But one day I will see him again when Christs comes back for the church

I am sorry for your loss. I lost a friend 2 years ago. :(

I understand how you feel.

It's why I choose to live each day like I may never see tomorrow, and plan for tomorrow like it will be here at sunrise

God helps us with the balance

You are such a bright light for Jesus

I love your page, your scripture, your LOVE for our savior!

He will continue to show you the way and comfort you, too.
