Over the weekend I was on a retreat when I heard that my friend Mary had been called home by the Lord after a 15 month battle against Leukemia.  Shortly after I heard the news of her death, this is the picture that I took as I prayed for the family that is now grieving the loss of wife and mother;


This is such a peaceful scene and  Mary is now at peace and looking her savior in the eyes.  She suffered well and now the battle is over for her.  I cannot imagine what anguish her husband and children are feeling at this time – please join me in praying for the family as the “Adjust and move forward.”

The Lord gives and takes away, blessed by the name of the Lord!
