A few days before Christmas one of my dearest and closest friends passed away. It was sudden and unexpected. She was an awesome girl! We met a little over 7 years ago and immediately clicked. She was one of the very few "sister friends" that I have. She loved my kids and she was a wonderful auntie to them. Rocco would sometimes ask me, "Mommy, is she really your sister and I would say, "Yes, she's my adopted sister, and Nan (my mother) considers her one of her daughters". It's interesting how some of the people that you are closest to are not your flesh and blood.
I loved my sisterfriend and I am glad, I let her know. I am glad I had the opportunity to share life with her. We have so many wonderful memories together. But right now, I can't stop the tears from flowing. Yet I know in my heart without a shadow of doubt because Jesus was her Savior that she is in Heaven. My human mind can not comprehend the joy that she is experiencing right now. I rest in the comfort that God's word says that He is close to the broken hearted. He knows how we, who are still here feel. He wept when Lazarus died.
If you love someone, it's so important to let them know. If you're walking around in unforgiveness and bitterness, forgive and release those who have you captive in bitterness. If you haven't made a decision to choose Christ, choose Him today. Life is a precious gift and eternity is just one breath away.
