Amy: Courage, sparkle, wit & fun . . . .




My friend Amy is having a really rough day.

She's packed heaps into 13 years, but doesn't have much time left here on earth.

That really stinks. there's more she'd like to have done, more we'd have liked to do with her.

So, if you're the praying type, please bend the ear of God for Amy and her family.

You can, of course, ask for anything you want, but her mum asks for peace and calm as Amy transitions to a place none of us have been to.

Of course, none of us are as independent as we think. Other people affections, hopes and dreams are connected to ours, so Amy's departure will affect many. Pray for them too.

There's no sense in this, so don't pray they'll make sense of it, but that they'll find ways to keep Amy near in their hearts and memories and that she'll continue to enrich lives for years to come.

Praying that they'll feel the arms of God holding them through all the heart-wrenching pain.
