Prayers for my friend Jeannie ...


Background: Jeannie, Kristie, and I have been friends since we were kids. Our lives have gone in many different directions, but we have always managed to stay somewhat in contact over the years.

Tuesday night I get a call from Kristie that Jeannie's brother Jeff has died. He had MS, but it was still a shock. Kristie flew in from FL yesterday and last night we found ourselves sitting in Jeannie's old bedroom like we had done so many times as teenagers just talking, laughing, and crying. During our adult lives we have been in and out of each others lives and have seen a lot of ups and downs with one another, but sitting there last night talking as if no time had passed since our last sit down (it had been at least a year since I had seen them)it hit me ... These two girls know me better than just about anyone. We have different lives, different view points, and a million other differences, but the core value of love will always connect us. I thank the Lord for Jeannie and Kristie. I ask you to pray with me for the Ross Family as they the mourn the death of Jeff and I encourage you to make the effort with those people in your life that love you for you. Those are the friendships that will stand the test of time. lol Kristie and Jeannie !!!!

I'm so sorry to hear about your friend's loss...I will pray.

I am glad, though, that you were able to re- connect with old friends. There is something so special about a relationship that started in childhood. It's true, time may pass without much contact but the friendship somehow stays intact.
