Lost a friend? God can help

Grief healed

Although We Lived far apart, Lynn and I were best buddies. We had the kind of relationship that allowed for phone calls at 2 a.m. just because one or the other was feeling blue. At a time in my life when I was wrestling with a particularly difficult problem, I started out many of my calls to Lynn crying. However, Lynn always found a way to make me laugh or to comfort me with tender words about God's unceasing devotion to His creation, including me. Having such a close friend greatly strengthened me at a time when I was saddened by the ending of another special relationship.

Then one day I received word that Lynn had passed on. I felt devastated and horribly alone. Coming on the heels of the other loss that had occurred in my life, her passing seemed more than I could bear.

Let no man take your joy from you!
