When words fail....

There are times when you know that your words will not be enough. One of my dear friends is hurting today. Her mother lost a very long battle with cancer last night. My heart aches for her.

My friend is, as always, gentle and faithful. She rejoices in the fact that her mother has gone home to her Saviour but she still feels the acute pain here and now that her absence brings.

So while I know no words I can utter will reduce the pain she is feeling and no actions will ease the pain in her heart, I will hug her with my prayers.
