hard time...

this has been a hard week. over the weekend my sister in law's husband was killed in a car accident. it has been hard thinking of her grieving heart. thinking of how she must be feeling as she plans the funeral of her 25 year old husband. through all of this i have been so amazed by her strength. she has planned the ceremony and is raising the money to pay for it. my heart is broken for her and my nephew. knowing that she must now figure out the baby's life, without daddy. oh man...
all i can think is the scripture in psalms that says:
god is close to the broken hearted

be near god
be near

I am so sorry. My heart grieves for this young wife and mom. I can't fathom this. I will be praying for this sweet girl during this time and that she will feel surrounded by the Father's love and also feel His love through the people around her.
