No not one!

Since all this with Cheryl has been going on God has planted an old hymn in my mind to bring me some comfort. "There's not a friend like the lowly Jesus, no not one, no not one" I won't sit here and type the whole song but as I think about Cheryl's family and the sorrow they must be feeling compounded by the fact that they don't know my Friend, well I can't even imagine.

I've known loss. I lost 2 babies - one in 2000 and one in 2003. I lost my Daddy to brain cancer in 2002. I lost my grandfather - the only grandparent I ever had in 1998. I've known loss yet thru it all I NEVER lost hope. I can't even begin to imagine facing life without my Jesus. He is my Rock, my Solid Ground, my Security. He is my Friend, my Comfort, my Peace and so much more. I pray that all of you know Him, not just as your life insurance policy but as your Friend that you talk to daily, that speaks to you daily! He's waiting...

Why didn't you tell me you'd been going through so much stuff?!? I just came by to see what was going on and found out that A LOT is going on. I will definitely be keeping this family and your sister in my prayers.

Sorry girl. It's just been crazy around here dealing with regular "life" stuff then add in all this and well... I know you understand. Thanks for caring.
