Thankful Thursday

Last night returning from church I was struck by the beauty of the evening!
God's presence was everywhere!
His omnipresence is an awesome thing! While I was basking in the glory of a spring twilight, a dear friend from church was being ushered into the heavenly portals. What a homecoming on such an eve as that! But what a tragedy for the family left behind, made all the more tragic in the suddenness of it all. Debbie, a mother of teen children, struck down in the prime of life by a heart attack.... Praise God He is there during trials and losses. Jesus is at this moment sitting at the right hand of the Father interceding for this family, and for the church who is so sad at Debbie's passing. Yet His Holy Spirit, the comforter, resides in every believer's heart sustaining and prompting to believe and have faith during these times. I am so thankful for God's omnipresence!

  1. Oh it is so sad when young mothers are taken from us so early.

  2. Beautiful picture, but so sad that your friend lost her life so young. I'll be praying for her family.


Your comments are a huge blessing and encouragement to me~
