II Timothy 1:7
… God hath not given us the spirit of fear ; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
These are the words from a friend’s blog. The last words. After this post she became ill suddenly. Today, she is gone. Behind is her husband and two young boys. Her family. Friends. Our homeschool community.
And I’m at a loss for words. Shock.
Did I not just ask God to bring peace to the situation Friday night? Did I not ask for His will to be done?
This was not the answer I expected.
Pray. Pray for this dear family…her husband in shock. Her young boys who must grow without their momma’s gentle presence. Her parents…for no parent should have to bury their child. Her sweet cousin…family…and our community as a whole.
It’s hard to hear when a mother dies. Harder when you know that mother.
