with the words of a love song...

the Lord is close to the brokenhearted 
and saves those who are crushed in spirit...
-Psalm 34:18 

my heart is aching. 
this world is full of sadness and things we just don't understand.... 

I came back to Virginia yesterday, after a fun time spent with family, to such sad and devastating news.  A sweet friend, wife, and mother went up to heaven yesterday.  We weren't the closest of friends, but we have sat next to each other in the movies, chatted about holding sweet babies, and has given me many welcoming hugs of friendship and love.  We have been at the same parties, get-togethers, Bible study's, and Easter celebrations.  Melissa, was beautiful woman, wife & mother who, I simply cannot believe, is no longer here.  Her husband and 3 sweet children are brokenhearted.  

I want to share my happy pictures and words from my days at the beach, but right now I just can't.  

So if you have a moment and find it in your heart, please send a sweet prayer up to heaven for her husband, children, family, and friends who greatly miss such an amazing woman.  

I can remember nothing but wonderful things about her.  
She had such an infectious smile and spirit, 
truly a beautiful person inside and out.   

if I die young, bury me in satin,
lay me down on a bed of roses
sink me in the river at dawn
send me away with the words of a love song

the sharp knife of a short life
well, i've had just enough time
