Comfort

I write a blog for so many reasons; the main one is for myself.  I write (definitely not perfectly) to share my passion for life, for living and passion for the things I love.  I also write to share what may be on my heart at any given moment, and today that is so much.
 
“Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.”
Matthew 11:28
 
 
I am a very positive person who loves her life, but today my heart is heavy and breaking.  One of my cousins, just two years older than me, passed away from a heart attack this morning, leaving behind his precious wife and daughter who is a senior in high school.
 As this is not difficult enough, Audley’s beautiful grandmother has slipped into a coma Monday night and is not expected to survive the week.
 
Sometimes I just feel like Satan is attacking from all sides trying to knock us down.  This week is that way!  I have turned to scripture for comfort and giving my grief to my Lord.  
 
 
 
I am taking a few days away, but I am asking for your prayers.  Please pray for God’s comfort as now two sides of my precious family are hurting and grieving.

  1. Jen, I'm so sorry to read this news. It's not easy to lose a cousin who is often as much like a sibling as our sisters and brothers. Also understand the pain of having a grandparent slipping away. Much love to you. God will meet you right at the place of your need. Praying for you all.

  2. Jennifer, I am so so sorry. I came over here today to get your Spicy Orange Chicken recipe and see that you are hurting. Please know that we care and are thinking of you and your family. Your scripture is so beautiful and I hope a source of comfort for you. We don't always know his ways but there is a reason. xoxo
