A Friend In Need

'A friend in need is a friend indeed.'

Last night I learned that Becky of Sweet Cottage Dreams lost her oldest son yesterday. At times like this the love and support and friends far and near means more than words can express. As you know we lost our son-in-law just a few weeks ago and there is no way to tell you what your prayers and kind messages of love have meant to us. Now it is time to surround our dear blog friend and hold her and her family before the Father above. I would encourage you not to leave comments here but to go to Becky's blog and leave notes of comfort and friendship for her. She needs them - and she will continue to need them for quite some time. There is nothing more precious than a friend who stands by you in life's worst moments.

Friends love through all kinds of weather,

and families stick together in all kinds of trouble.

Proverbs 17:17

(The Message)

  4. Adrienne, I'm glad you posted this. It's hard to know what to do for our friends who are so far away, but prayer always works!
