CS Lewis once said that "grief is like the sky, it covers everything." In recent weeks, our family has found that this is so very true. It seems that there is no right or wrong way to travel this path of grief. I have created this blog in hopes that some day we will be able to look back on our journey and see written proof that our great God never leaves us. God is good all the time.

Prayers for Preslee

My heart weeps for a the family of Preslee Jo Sullenger  who has finished her life's race.  This family is living the horror of drowning death and of saying good bye to their beautiful daughter long before they were ready. 
My brain cannot begin to wrap around why these things happen to good people.  I am grateful that the Sullenger family seems to have a very close walk with the Lord.  He can and will carry them through this pain.  I know that God is good all the time but I simply cannot understand.

Please pray for this family.


  1. Tears. As my stomach just churns. I don't get it... Prayers.

  2. You are so sweet to care about another family. So very sweet as you sorrow for your own loss, to reach out to others. May you find peace in the little joys of life. Blessings to you and yours. Laynee is so beautiful and I'm sure she's growing flowers in heaven.

  3. You seriously never fail to put my life into perspective. I will always cry for you and Laynee. Now Carmen and Laynee have a new best friend.
