Prayer... [Mar. 19th, 2003|10:25 pm]
The Love Bug
[Current Mood |calmcalm]

Hazel (our Minister) and Jenny (church steward and close family friend) have just left. They got here shortly after 2100 and we've been chatting about life, death and emotions.

Before they left, Hazel led us in a prayer of thanks for Jeff's life, as well as our own, and asking for strength and guidance over the next few days. I swear I felt an arm go around me, and even from my position sitting on the floor, I knew that no-one had got up and moved towards me.

After a beautiful prayer like that, you would think that I would at least have offered them something to drink!! :-P

I feel much calmer now, thanks to them and Caroline.

Thank you to everyone for your kind words. You don't know how much they (and you) mean to us.

What you say about feeling the arm go around you... I think you probably recall me mentioning that I had the strongest sense that James came to me on the night he died and stroked my hair as I slept. I always say there are more things in this world than we can fully realise or comprehend... and this is one of them.

You two are deeply loved by a lot of people, and I know I speak for everyone when I say that you have us all to turn to, if you need anything at all. Me especially. You've been there for me, and now I am here for you.

Take care.

I've said this to Caroline already - but just wanted to pass on my warm thoughts to you as well Dave!

Take care of yourself and each other (as you always do)

I could go on and on about how I've seen people's strength of faith help them through extremely difficult times ... suffice to say that it's comforting to know that you also have that :o)

*thinking of you both*
