My heart stopped for a blog friend

There are so many things I want to share on this blog.  I think you could say I'm using this sliver of the blogosphere as my personal journal / therapy / encouragement station / is that what I'm REALLY thinking / and venting area of my life.  I love finding other bloggers that are interested in the same things I'm interested in doing or being or aspiring to being.  Anyway, I love finding blogs I can relate to.  And, I like to comment on their blogs and, kind of, develop a "relationship" with these bloggers.  I know we don't know each other.  I know we will, most likely, NEVER meet each other.  But, I like them.  I feel like I "know" them.

Today one of my blog friends posted this and my heart stopped.   Dear blog followers and friends, please pray for the comfort and spiritual healing for Jeff and Beth Dargis.  I don't know what to say.  I cannot imagine the pain they must be experiencing.  I know many of the people reading my blog believe in Jesus Christ and the forgiveness and salvation we have in Him.  I know Beth does.  Beth does not know me in "real life", but I've been a follower of her blog for quite a while and have grown to admire her, if not love her, in a way.  I'm asking for nothing more than prayer.  As believers, we know that is the best we can give.  Thanks and God bless the Dargis family.


  1. You know, as a "poet" or "wordsmith", sometimes I'm just at a loss for words. This is one of those sometimes.
    I cannot fathom why parents have to survive their children. It should never be. I can only quote a few lines that helped me through the grief of my first born.....

    Then shall I know...
    Not 'til the loom is silent
    And the shuttles cease to fly
    Shall God unroll the canvas
    And explain the reason why
    The dark threads are as needful
    In the weavers skillful hand
    As the threads of gold and silver
    In the pattern he has planned.

    Thinking of you.

  2. Oh Elaine...this journey on Earth is not an easy one. Thank you for sharing and thank you for caring.
