Please pray for Kristy!

I'm asking you to lift up Kristy (Aussietigger), a fellow alliance member of all the FIRST groups, in prayer. Her husband drowned in a boating accident on Easter.

She gave the post link to give to you about the tragedy:

Please go leave her an encouraging comment and pray for her as well as all who also loved her husband, Steve.

Some lyrics that come to mind and help slightly to ease the thought of pain:

Abide with me; fast falls the eventide; The darkness deepens; Lord, with me abide! When other helpers fail and comforts flee, Help of the helpless, O abide with me. Swift to its close ebbs out life's little day; Earth's joy grow dim; its glories pass away; Change and decay in all around I see; O Thou who changest not, abide with me. I need Thy presence every passing hour, What but They grace can foil the tempter's power? Who, like Thyself, my guide and stay can be? Through cloud and sunshine, Lord, abide with me. I fear no foe, with Thee at hand to bless; Ills have no weight, and tears no bitterness. Where is death's sting? Where, grave, they victory? I triumph still, if Thou abide with me. Hold Thou Thy cross before my closing eyes; Shine through the gloom and point me to the skies; Heaven's morning breaks, and earth's vain shadows flee; In life, in death, O Lord, abide with me. - Henry Francis Lyte (1793-1847)
