Then I heard a voice from heaven say, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord from now on.”
“Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labor, for their deeds will follow them.” – Revelation 14:13
“Don’t wait until it’s too late to tell someone how much you love, how much you care. Because when they’re gone, no matter how loud you shout and cry, they won’t hear you anymore.”
“Death ends a life, not a relationship.” – Robert Benchley
So this post was not supposed to be like this, but… As I was on the phone with my mother on my way home from work yesterday, she told me that a family friend (who’s known me since birth) had passed away in a car accident in Nigeria. It is amazing to me how someone who is seemingly healthy and in good condition can be here one second, then gone the next. It also only validates why it is so important to be nice to people, but also to forgive them of their wrongdoing (even if the state of the relationship is negatively impacted) because having such anger and animosity in your heart only affects your own life… especially if their life is taken unexpectedly and you never have the chance to tell them how you truly feel. We are all sinners and guilty of offending someone at some point in our lives. We all must be right with ourselves so that we may be right with others.
Please keep my friend and her family lifted up in your prayers… life and death is not easy for anyone.
This past Sunday my best friend from childhood (we’ve known each other since 2nd grade) got married! Still in shock she’s a wife, but could not be more excited for her. Here’s one of her guests from Gambia. This dress is the epitome of summer- just lively!
Have a blessed Thursday! xx
