Yay!...Company Coming From Delaware Today!
These are my six words this Saturday!
These are some online friends who we are meeting for the first time. They have recently faced a deep time of sorrow, as their baby girl went to be with Jesus in late August. My daughter, Lynnette who has lost three children of her own, met Erika online a few years ago. And they have kept up through the years. And I entered the picture along the way as my husband and I began praying for this family when we heard of the first baby they lost two years ago. And now we have also prayed for them during this second time of great sorrow.
The Bible says that we are to comfort others with the same comfort He has given us. And that is what we want to do for this sweet family. We remember the pain in our hearts when we lost three of our grandchildren...and so our hearts go out to them...but we also want to share the hope that the Lord has given us through the years. And to share the joy that He gave us as we healed from the hurt. The Lord has put them in our hearts...and through pictures, emails, and posts, we have come to know them and care deeply for them.
These people are believers...and so that makes us family in Christ. I feel like we do have a kinship with them already. They also have a darling 4 year old boy...and he brings them much joy. They are just needing a getaway and new surroundings, as they walk this hard road. Kansas is quite a ways from Delaware...and I hope they will see some beauty in our "Land of Ahhhs!"
Please pray for the Rodger's family...that God will heal their broken hearts, and refresh their spirits. Thank you!

(Speaking of my daughter Lynnette...today is her 44th Birthday! She is an amazing person, and we all love her so very much! She has suffered much sorrow in her life, with the loss of three children...but God has moved her to a place of joy...and she has shared her testimony in two books she has written. "In Faithfulness He Afflicted Me" And "He Heard Hannah"...by Lynnette Kraft! They are available on Amazon.com and Barnes and Nobel too...And if you read them, I know you will be blessed!)
