My Friend Gayle

This past Sunday I got some awful, shocking news. My good friend from work, Gayle, had passed away in her sleep. I am still in denial that she is gone. She was a wonderful friend and sister in Christ. This was totally shocking because she was in good health. She was engaged to be married in April. She has two wonderful kids (one out of college and one in college). If you could, please pray for her fiance, her children, her family and friends. We are all in shock. But my comfort is in the Lord and that she is with Him. I will see my friend again and what a joyous day that will be!!

This is a startling reminder that the Bible says we are not promised tomorrow. And we need to be 100% sure of where we are going to spend eternity.

I love my friend and miss her dearly. I will see you soon Gayle.

A Good Scripture for the Times

"He will be the sure foundation for your times,
a rich store of salvation and wisdom and knowledge;
the fear of the Lord is the key to this treasure."

-Isaiah 33:6
