Sudden loss

My dear friend Marylynn's mom passed away yesterday. She had surgery last week and developed an infection and suddenly died. I am in shock. When I talked to Marylynn yesterday she had no emotion whatsoever in her voice...she was numb. As I woke up this morning I put myself in her place, knowing that when she woke up it would all come back to her and she would realize that it wasn't a bad dream that it really happened.

I know the pain of grief first hand when my husband's dad passed away a little over a year ago. It's beyond excruciating. I'm calling on all my prayer warrior friends out there. Please lift her up right now. Let's agree together that God would pour his peace and comfort on her and her family, that despite this loss they would feel God's presence and love surround them giving them the strength to endure the days to come.

Thanks for listening.
