"This is what it means to be held
How it feels, when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive
This is what it is to be loved and to know
That the promise was when everything fell
We'd be held"
(Natalie Grant, "Held")

Just wanted to let everyone who was praying know that God took Rachel's mom Home this morning. As you can imagine, it is a difficult time for the whole family, especially at this time of year. Please continue praying for the family, that God will hold them tight during this trial of life, and that God will give them wisdom in all of the decisions to be made. We rejoice that she is now singing with the angels in Heaven, pain-free, but are saddened for the loss of a dear family member and friend.

Thank you for all your caring words and prayers!


  1. Oh, my heart breaks for them. Keeping Rachel in my prayers. :(

  2. What a good friend you are. Rachel is lucky to have you. Praying for her and her family.

  3. Mrs. B, I second that!

    Praying for Rachel... glad Jeremiah was able to be with her today. Thank you for sharing that picture, too... what a beautiful visual.


Help relieve some of my insanity by letting me know you stopped by!
