~SWEET REST FOR ANDREA~

~PEACE FOR ANDREA~

Dear Friends...

I uploaded my Makeover Post of today before receiving the news my sweet childhood friend, Andrea, had passed into the loving arms of her Lord early this morning.  I'm rejoicing my longtime friend has found peace and rest with Jesus and that her earthly body is free from the pain she had been suffering with for a long, long time.

Thank you for your prayers and for your thoughts and concerns for someone you didn't even know.  Andie was very young...too young to pass from this earth.  But...God's grace is enough and in my heart I know He will not allow what we, His children, cannot bear.

Please say a prayer (or two, or three...) for Andrea's children, her tiny grandbabies and her hubby of over 30 years.  I know within my own heart their lives have changed forever...

May the Mercy, Grace, Peace and Love of our Lord be with them today and always.

(I love you, Andie the Nut...xoxoBecky)

I love you all~

When I was praying and shedding tears for you, the first two lines of this comment came to me.
I'm so very sorry Rebecca.
You are the second person dear to me that has lost a friend "today" and has a heart that hurts.

Hi Rebecca, Sending big hugs and prayers to you this day-it is so hard to loose those we love.

Sharon said...

Rebecca I am so sorry for your loss an my prayers are with you and Andres' family. You know when loved ones leave this world and our Lord calls them back to be with him sometimes it is very hard for us to deal with and what I try to keep in mind is the fact that they were is too much pain and our Lord said this is enough I do not want my daughter in pain any longer. I hope this brings a little comfort and know that we who follow you and love you are here with you...

Moments of Grace said...

Rebecca,
My thoughts and prayers are with you today. As you know, my own dear friend passed away the third of January---it hurts so badly to lose someone we love.

I may have shared this before, but feel prompted in my spirit to share it again. It is a beautiful phrase of a prayer given by Peter Marshall, former chaplain to the United States Senate:

"Those we love are with the Lord and He has promised to be with us. If they are with Him, and He is with us, then they cannot be far away.".

May our tender Father-God comfort you today.

In Grace,
Marie

So very sad to hear about your loss.. my prayers and thought are with her family and friends. take care, Maryann

NanaDiana said...

It is sad to hear of your friend's passing. It just seems so wrong to have someone our own age die...knowing that their life has not been fully lived...and that they have left behind young loved ones. I don't know, Rebecca, sometimes I just rail against disease and illness stricking those that have never hurt a single living person...just the seeming injustice of it all. I know that you are feeling sad right now...but I also know that you know you will be reunited with all those you love one day. Hugs- Diana

Rebecca, I have a dear childhood friend that I've had for about 60 years now and to the thought of life without her is more than I can stand.
I am so terribly sorry about your dear friend! And for her family.
Everyone is too young to die. No matter their age...
I know you will miss her terribly. You have to wonder why some have to leave us so soon.
My love to you,
Mona
