Cherish your Friendships

Cherish your friendships.  Life can change suddenly.  I received the phone call in the evening of last week.  My friend Susie had died suddenly.  I could hardly believe this news.  After all, she hadn't been sick as far as I knew.  As news spread among her friends, the overall response was shock.  I think the suddenness and unexpectedness of her death stunned everyone.  And yet we never know when our last day on earth will be.

Blessings and love,

  1. I don't even know what to say sister Debbie. Because if it's my friend, I know how much it hurts to lose someone you love and care for very much just like that. I pray for the Lord's comfort and strength for you and your friend's family and friends. May it ever stay in our hearts and minds what you said: "To cherish our friendships more than any concerns of this world." Blessings and love to you sister.

    It was so wonderful to see you today, and although you had shared this with me earlier, it just makes our time together even sweeter as one considers that life is fragile. I know your friend was a blessing to you. I just want to tell you that you are a blessing to me.
