On Tuesday night February 9th, Leigh Allyn lost her battle with Cystic Fibrosis. Leigh Allyn was a girl that I went to high school with and roomed with my freshmen year of college. If you want to read her full story you can check it out at leighallynsbreathingroom.blogspot.com. Over the past four years, since our time together, our friendship has faded. In about the past 4 months we have talked some and I got to see her for lunch over Christmas. I am so glad of that!
It takes true faith to know that people who go before you, you will see them again one day. Yesterday at her funeral, it was said best- you will miss her for the time that she is there and you are here, but think, you get to spend eternity together! It was so comforting at her funeral to know that she is healthy, happy, and we will meet again one day. This time when our paths cross, it will be in the presence of our Lord, worshiping for eternity. That is WAY better than anything on this Earth. Don't you think?!
I am so glad that I got to spend some time with Leigh Allyn a few weeks ago, and we could put our pasts behind us. I knew that things could never be the same, but I am so at peace to know that we were ok. Even though we were not best of friends any longer, we still had a love for each other that would go on for eternity. I hope that I can continue to mend old friendships.
Just pray for her family and close friends at this time. It will be a long healing process, but they are strong in their faith and they will see her again one day. It is always comforting to know that papa t and leigh allyn, and all others that have gone are doing what they loved to do on Earth- worship God.
In other news: More snow on the way! Will my children ever come to school five days in a row! Maybe in March?!
