Our prayer for you, your family, and Home

Grant them peace, most precious gift of all
Keep the worried world far away and small
When they return, may quiet fill their souls,
Dearest Lord, keep them safe within it's walls.

May the stone be cool beneath their feet.
The canyon breezes circle soft and sweet
When darkness falls, the stars and opal moon
Find them wrapped in each other, ever warm.

May it be a refuge for their love,
A harbor for their deepest prayer.
May they come to flourish in the grove,
Grow ever nearer to You there.

Many a burdened friend in their company rises,
A heavy heart is soon released to fly.
May their table be blessed with laughter and with grace
And by the comfort of kinship be surprised.

May it be a refuge for their love,
A harbor for their deepest prayer.
May they come to flourish in the grove,
Grow ever nearer to You there.

May the cold wind blow far from their front door
May the winter rains never bring them harm
May their hearthfires burn throughout the night
Grant them peace until morning's perfect light.

May it be a refuge for their love,
A harbor for their deepest prayer.
May they come to flourish in the grove,
Grow ever nearer to You there.

Hold fast to Hebrews 6:19 ⚓️ 

Sending you love and hugs

Just a note of encouragement to take to heart the knowledge that God's love for you is never ending and His purpose for you is bigger than any problems we could ever struggle with. God promises to fill our needs as we share compassion and His love to others. Even while you walk through the difficult burdens and trials in your life continue to look for opportunities to encourage and uplift others and we know you will be enriched.

But be wise and prepare yourself "Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and, as shoes for your feet, having put on the readiness given by the gospel of peace." Protect yourself  "In all circumstances take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming darts of the evil one; and take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God," and strengthen yourself "praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication." Stay on God's focus for you "To that end keep alert with all perseverance,"  Ephesians 6:14-18 

With a focus on God not promising to always gift us with what we "want" but does promise to provide what He knows we "need," remember with God ALL things truly are possible. May you see fruit of His work on you, with you, though you, and around you.

We continue to cover you in prayer. Hold fast to Hebrews 6:19 ⚓️ 

Sending you love and hugs

Sending hugs and lifting you up in prayers....

Recently I ran across a quote from Helen Keller. I'd never heard it before. I thought of you and hope that it is maybe a new way to look at your grief and try to wrench some comfort out of this sentiment. If not now, maybe you'll be ready to give it more thought as time goes on.  My heart is with you all.  Here's the quote:

We bereaved are not alone.
We belong to the largest company in all the world, the company of those who have known suffering.
When it seems that our sorrow is too great to be borne, let us think of the great family of the heavy hearted into which our grief has given us entrance, and inevitably, we will feel about us their arms, their sympathy, their understanding.
Believe, when you are most unhappy, that there is something for you to do in the world.
So long as you can sweeten another's pain, life is not in vain.
-- Helen Keller

Hello Kari Jo,

I have posted in your journal before.  You don't know me, but your family, your accident and deep loss has captured my heart.  We lost a dear nephew in a motorcycle accident, so when we hear of situations such as yours our hearts leap to the opportunity to hold you up in prayers for healing, comfort and peace.  Keep up the good fight dear heart.  The Father, Son and Holy Spirit are closer to you than yourself.

Hello Kari, I am a sister to Missy Thompson who is a friend to your sister Kati. I have been following your amazing progress. Your accomplishments are a testament of your strength and will. You are the definition of a WARRIOR.
Missy often speaks of the closeness and tight bond that you and your sisters share. I too am blessed to have wonderful sisters. I am glad that you all have each other, there is no other bond like Sisterhood. 
Here's to a quick recovery so that you may be back where you belong, at home with family.

I do not know you or your family but I just cannot imagine what your entire family is going through.  I pray that God wraps you, your family and your angels in his arms and guides you away from the pain you are feeling.  I am truly sorry that anyone would have to mourn the loss your family has had to mourn.  I pray for your full recovery and to find your way through life for your son and your family!
