Crying with HOPE Today

 We are mourning and weeping with dear friends today

who lost their son tragically at Fort Benning yesterday.

Hug those you love often

Say I love you

Love deeply 

Don't sweat the small stuff

It really doesn't matter that your living room has not been updated in years or that you don't have the latest clothes or... 

the list could go on and on.

What really matters is loving God

and loving others.

Things of eternal importance.

Live each day as if it were your last.


 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,  who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 

2 Corinthians 1:3-4 


  1. Oh Dear Kelli, we were in Columbus this past weekend... so near Ft. Benning! I will pray for that sweet family! You are correct, little things are just that... LITTLE!


  2. I am so sorry to hear about your friends loss and I have said many times not to sweet the little things it so so true.......

  3. Oh, my heart.

    I will be lifting his family in prayer. I know exactly how my family would be feeling and hurting and will pray with that spirit.
