Days of tears and laughter

This was a day of tears and laughter...all of our eyes must be really beautiful. Some of you may remember Sophia Loren saying "Your eyes cannot be beautiful unless they've cried". So we are all real pretty today! I was so proud of my friend. She was so strong and even though she will miss her mother so badly, she was so filled with grace today that it could ONLY be the Lord. A preacher friend flew in to do the service and it was just perfect. Although there were tears, there were many memories that brought laughter to everyone.

My sister came from Pensacola, so sweet! Katie and Mary Grace came with their dad and his wife. The lady that died was one of three women in the church that went with their mother to Mayo in Jacksonville and stayed and cared for her, so she meant a great deal to that family. Sometimes when I read my posts, I wonder if anyone understands my ramblings!

It has been an exhausting week for this family and I'm praying they get some good rest now, knowing that Rubye is with her Savior. "But we do not want you to uninformed, brothers, about those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope" 1st Thessalonians 4:13 I am terribly sad for those who have no hope.

I about to start my morning time with the Lord and will keep you in my prayers.

I hope you don't mind, but I've added you to my blogroll.

You have a great blog.

It is hard to imagine those with no hope. So sad for them. Just look at what relief and comfort you have found in the scripture... I wish everyone could have that. I will say extra prayers for you and the family as the coming days will be difficult.
