Lord, comfort the broken-hearted...

Today I am filled with sadness for a family that I have never met.  Tim and Jane and their 6 young children were missionaries to Trinidad that our church supports.   But..... Jane (only 39 years old) passed away suddenly yesterday.  They found out only weeks ago that stage 4 cancer had taken over her body, and she passed away very suddenly after going into a coma just 2 nights ago.  

Oh.. how it's hard to see the good in this, even though we know our God is good!  Please, please pray for Tim and his 6 (yes, six!) young children that are now left without their dear wife/mommy.  Pray that they'll receive comfort and grace to meet them in their desperate time of need.  Praise God that, though her family and friends mourn deeply, Jane right now is in glory, where there is no more pain, only joy in the presence of the Lord.

"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints" Psalm 116:15
