Recently, my grandpa passed away, and while DH and I were down for the funeral, we learned of other bad news. Now, I've just learned of more! I feel like the people I love are starting to drop like flies. *I am so worried. I know, this is life. I am nearly 46 and I am just not used to so much death, especially at once.

I know this has nothing to do with quilting, but I wanted to ask my forum friends who pray, to please pray for my family and please pray for me to have strength. Thank you and thank you for reading.

You and your family are in my prayers. From August 2012 until about March 2013 we lost 14 or 15 people in our family, including my mother and my brother so I know what you are feeling.

((((((((((Misa)))))))))) Facing our mortality can be very humbling and at times frightening. I will pray that you will have the Peace and Love and assurance from our Loving Savior, that will give you the comfort and strength and courage you need. May God bless you and keep you in his tender mercies. With love, ~Sheri

Misa, I am so sorry....prayers that your burden of grief is ended soon.

Misa, you're in my prayers. I understand how you are feeling. During a 9 month span in 2008-2009, DH and I lost our moms, his twin brother, and 3 other close family members. Although it doesn't seem like it when we're going through this, God gives us strength. (((HUGS))))

Misa.....so sorry to hear you are dealing with more sad news. It does feel overwhelming at times when so many things sad happen so close together. You have been in my prayers and will continue to be. Take care of yourself.

Before I close my eyes to sleep, I thought to read the responses made to me. I want to thank each of you. I am greatful and feel blessed to have such people praying for me and my family. You all truly do amaze me. Thank you.

So sorry to hear and I will be praying for you and your family.

I recently learned that my oldest cousin has a terminal disease. Even though he is almost 20 yrs older than I am, he is still in "my generation" and it really makes you realize how short life can be.

(((Misa))) Prayers for the health of the rest and much strength for your family. You already know God doesn't give us more than we can handle, when the burden is too heavy turn some over to the Lord.

Covering you in prayer!

Lifting you up in prayer.. Remember God only gives us only what we can handle. ( And a friend recently posted this.. "God must think I am bad ass because he is throwing a lot at me right now". Lol!)
