Sweet Sarah

Be praying for Sarah and her family (I came across her blog while on another friend's blog and I spent all evening reading her story)

My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

Let the lowly brother glory in his exaltation, but the rich in his humiliation, because as a flower of the field he will pass away. For no sooner has the sun risen with a burning heat than it withers the grass; its flower falls, and its beautiful appearance perishes. So the rich man also will fade away in his pursuits. Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him.

James 1:1-12

I didn't know Sarah, but now I feel like I do. I memorized her face so I will recognize her when I get to heaven. I could definitely feel that you were a light here on earth and I can confidently say I know your light will never burn out. Shine bright firefly, shine bright... just some thoughts.
