When will this ever stop! So many passings. It started with hubby's sisters passing. Then a close family friend. Within several days.

Then the mother of a Church member. Then, within a day or so, a 49 yr old Church member [cancer]. He was a one time classmate of Celestes. The day after another class mate of hers passed.

Two days ago a second cousin of hubby's [she was 43] passed. I received a e-mail prayer request last eve from Church. Another young man, [brain cancer]. Hospice has been called in! Projected time by the holidays!

I almost dread to have hubby read the obites.. I hestiate opening e-mail from Church or taking a phone prayer chain call!

We are losing so many.

Prayers are needed for all we know.

    I can relate!! This happened to us this year 3 family members passed away within weeks and the a friend passed beginning of August. It is hard to take!! The year my mother in law died, two uncles died within a week of each other and then my Mother in law died. In Less than two weeks. OUCH!

    Jesus we know that you love the people that it is time for them to come home to you, but for those of us left behind, IT HURTS. Please give my sister and family a breather. It is better to be in heaven than on earth - but Jesus it is hard for us on earth to go through all these passings! Whoa plz.
    In your name Jesus I pray this. Amen HUGS Sis - I can relate.

    I can relate to that as so many are either dying or died; some in hospitals, some in hospice. We need to be ready when He calls us.

    Janet, you, your family and the families of the deceased are in my prayers. Even though our faith in eternal life comforts us, the loss of the physical presence of our loved ones is so very painful!!

    May our Lord fill each of you with the peace of His Holy Spirit.

    Blessings and Hugs!

    I am sorry Janet and will say a prayer for each of your friends and loved ones and you too. Yes death and disasters do seem to come in sets. In the meantime just love those around you that much more.

    We can't understand. It is so hard especially when those so young are taken. But, as we know, they are better off. We are selfish and miss them. Prayers. Brenda

    I'm so sorry; it's happening here too. I am praying for a lovely family friend, in her 50's who just found out the same, and she is struggling. It's hard to find words for those who are dealing w/ it every second of life. It just consumes the thoughts of every family member and friend. Keeping the faith; Hugs, Lori

    emoticon Will hold you and the deceased family's in prayer. Death will be the last enemy to be concorded . Every few days we our touched by cancer in some way either someone in the church or family . Sickness and death will be no more but while we are in the flesh we do deal with it . I thank God i have a hope ! I have a future beyond this life . If you don't have it go to the christian bookstore and get a serenity prayer plaque put it where you will see it often . It holds the key to victory in this life ! I am here if i can help please feel free to contact me ! emoticon

    Lord, we pray now for Janet and her family. Sorrow and saddness would flee away at the sound of Your Name. Equip my sister with the ministry of comfort now in Jesus name. May your peace that surpasses all understanding guide her heart and mind in Christ Jesus. Amen
