the phone quite clearly) & I knew immediately ...I just sobbed

My Sweet Friend Deena,ReplyDelete
I will put Lexie's Family in my prayers. What a sorrowful day as you said.
And yes, I agree with you 100% as both you and I have questioned God and asked him, why the little ones, why not take me. I belive sometimes it's what they call survivors guilt. And it happens more than anyone wants to talk about. Both you and I know that for sure.
When things like this happen, I have to remember one of my favorite Psalms, "Be still, and know that I am God" (Psalm 46:10)
Love you bunches, Amy
so very sorry to hear of your great niece's passing. i will keep her family and you in my thoughts and prayers.ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry, Deena. I will pray for her entire family and you at this sad time. I'm glad you have such a strong and living faith to help you through these hard times. Love, DianeReplyDelete
So sorry to hear this, Deena. I just posted recently about trusting God, even in the dark places. It isn't always easy, especially when we watch children die, but heaven is our goal anyway, and now Lexie has reached it.ReplyDelete
Prayers for the family, but I believe with my whole heart she is a happy little girl today, free from all pain!ReplyDelete
“… absent from the body and present with the Lord.” —2nd Corinthians 5:8.
I'm so sorry.
And although I understand why you questioned as you did, I so agree with Rich and your perspective to just trust that our Lord has His reasons.
Reading this was very timely for me as I just scolded my 10 year old quite harshly for something really not justifying such a response. I was already second-guessing myself when I read your post. As soon as I send off this comment, I am going to go squeeze her as tight as she'll let me, and just thank God for every bit of her.
Love and prayers to you, Rich, and Lexie's family.
Oh sweet friend, I am so sorry. It's so hard to understand why some struggle more than others and why some leave this earth WAY too soon, but we are not to ask why. God is in control. We are in His hands. I'm sure little Lexie is happy and wants everyone to know she is in a far better place...and that you will see her again.ReplyDelete
I'm so sorry ...ReplyDelete

Oh Deena. I am so sorry. Words fail at times like these. Please know there are prayers and love being sent up for you and yours.ReplyDelete
Deena, I am so sorry to hear about your little niece. Another Mother's heart is broken today, but God will mend it. I will pray for family and for you. I have said the same thing many times, as I would rather live in pain the rest of my life than to see a young child die. But God has a plan for each of us and He won't take us home until our job here on Earth is done. Bless you. Love and hugs, PatReplyDelete

Dear Deena, I am so sorry for the family's loss of that bright sunshine child. We mourn for ourselves, because we will miss our beloved. But for our beloved, their tears will all be wiped away, neither will there be sickness or death any longer.ReplyDelete
So sorry to hear this. It is difficult to sometimes understand.ReplyDelete
Sweet Deena... I am so sorry for the loss of your niece... I know how difficult it can be at times to understand the "why"... especially when it comes to such a youg life...ReplyDelete
Before my younger sister passed away last year she kept telling me to read a book called "The Shack"... It has changed my life and my way of thinking... I recommend it for everyone... especially those dealing with grief... it gives you answers and many aha moments that you never thought you would have...
You and the family of your niece are in my prayers ...
I did want to say you look so gorgeous in the photo below ...
LOTS OF HUGS
