A Simple Prayer for My Friend Christine.
Lord, someone we both care about so much is hurting. I pray that You will draw her so very close to You. Give her heart a big, heavenly hug. Fill her mind with peace that only You can give. Bless her life with the joy that comes from down deep inside. Give her strength for this day and hope for tomorrow. And, most of all, may she know she is never, ever alone. Amen.
While I can't explain why you've had to go through this time of sorrow, I can assure you that God has never loved you more and His plans for you are still for your good. (Jer. 29:11)
Personally, my soul has been touched by your strength and my heart by your struggle. I understand it has been a difficult time for you, and the pain you are feeling now is real. Praying for you now and for the many days to come.
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace because you trust in Him." Romans 15:13

I first met Jim at North Arundel Church several years ago when he volunteered as a greeter. He introduced himself to me with the name "Bear". He shared with pride, his heritage was American Indian and his mother gave him the name Bear. Our friendship grew as Bear loved to share stories and adventures from his past. When he ran out of stories then he had favorite recipes to talk about. The more I listened and learned about Bear, I came to realize just how appropriate the name Bear was for him. He was 6' 4", broad shoulders and long blonde hair. His energy and enthusiasm about life and helping others were characteristics I admired and appreciated as our friendship grew. Yes, this man was in fact a big " teddy bear" in my eyes. I am thankful for the opportunity to know and develop the friendship we shared through the years. We shall meet again my friend, and you will have even more glorious stories to share. Until then, love you much!
