Sweet Anna

16 Jul

Last night my roommate and good friend Anna found out that her sweet dad went to be with Jesus. It has been a whirlwind of a 24 hours. Words cannot express the sorrow I have witnessed, the love that has been shown, and the comfort that can only come from one truth…that Anna’s sweet daddy is sitting with Jesus hearing him say, “Well done, my good and faithful servant.”

All of you dear friends and family of mine, pray for my precious friend Anna Reed as she suffers through the shock of this loss and the months and years to come of really grasping it all. We don’t know why Anna was 8,000 miles away from her family when this happened, but the Lord does. Anna is on a plane home right now…the flight is awful on the best of days…but she knows, and we know, that Jesus is comforting her in a way only He could. Pray for her on this flight. Pray for her family. And thank the Lord that grief is not eternal, death is not eternal…but LIFE is eternal. And that we find shelter in our sweet Jesus.
