I love this time of year and planning special events..... so warm and cosy!
On my mind:
LAst week our church family suffered the loss of one . One of our pastor's sons age 16 was killed suddenly and he was such a precious young man... thiswas truly a devastating thing for that family and for our church body.... but I cant help to think that even as most of us are now able to move on with our lives I am thinking of that family... facing this week and the coming holiday season and how their lives are changed forever. I am reminded never ever to take my family for granted...


  1. There will forever be an empty spot in their lives ... the family will never be the same. I have walked in their shoes. Prayers are lifting for them ... He will hold them in His arms as they grief, to lift their sadden hearts.

    Have a beautiful & blessed Thanksgiving.

  2. My prayers go out to your Pastor's family. How terrible.

    Your blog is beautiful and very uplifting. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.
