Another angel is born

I was planning to post about the fun we had yesterday. Maybe I will tomorrow.

Right now, the most important thing is the news that Taylor Arrington went home to the arms of the Lord this morning.

I am at a loss to express how much this hurts me, and I cannot fathom the pain her family is going through. To have lost this sweet little girl, who fought so bravely for so many years, is such a tragedy.

But I also have faith in the fact that she is joyful and healthy at the Lord’s side, with her perfect body that will never hurt again, will never suffer again and will never experience a moment’s sadness.

Please keep her family in your prayers as they grieve the loss of their daughter. I also ask for prayer for all those who loved her and will miss her.

f.r.o.G…fully relying on God

    Anissa, I'm sorry I wasn't able to talk to you this morning. I saw you when I was talking to Mrs. Wade. this morning. (I was telling her about Justin's decision to be baptized.) =) I saw you and I thought I saw something wrong in your eyes and when I was finished talking to Mrs. Wade, I didn't see you again. I just read this and wish I could of given you a hug this morning and been able to talk to you. I'm sorry for the loss of this sweet girl. I'll be praying for her family and also for you. I know times like these are especially hard on you, too. Even though we know she is happy and healthy now, we are only human and our hearts still ache, and you think about Peyton, too. Do not fear Anissa. God is with you through this. He has a plan. Pastor O'Hara spoke two weeks ago about Job and how much he suffered, but it wasn't his testimony after the trial that was important and mattered as much as how he came through it. You and your family shine bright for the Lord every day with everything you are going through. Right now, I believe that's God's plan. He is being glorified through you. Two verses for you today…

    Jer. 29:11 I know the plans I have for you declares The Lord. Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a Hope and a Future.

    II Tim. 1:7 For God hath not given us the spirit of fear, but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.

    I love you and your family so much. You are constantly in our families thoughts and prayers.

    Happy side note: This morning I was telling Darryl about two of Peyton's latest stories…The "I'm Blind" one and "Conversations with Mike Alstott". He about fell out. Thanks for the stories. I'm telling you, save your posts and you will have plenty of material one day to be a stand up comedian.
