Goodbye My Friend....

Today I have come to the conclusion that I know "why". "Why" is the number one question I have heard this week- it even came out of my own mouth several times, and I want to share "why" with all of you who prayed for my family and my friend. My friend Steve started out with a little spot of melanoma- nothing big- just one malignant spot two years ago. His life quickly went from one of thriving to surviving. and eventually, when there was nothing left ot be done- and I mean nothing- he said his goodbyes and fell alsleep. I never in the course of 2 years heard my friend complain about anything- not illness, not medication not treatment. I never heard him ask for help, and I never saw him have any regrets either. We call him "the rock" because like a rock- he stood as the finest example of humanity you will ever see. He taught me that you have to pick your battles carefully- and you have to be ready to fight them when you pick them. You also have to be ready to meet God, the Creator and Father of us all. You can never take for granted what God has in store for you- because your mission may be beginning or wrapping up. The "why everyone is asking- is simply to teach a lot of people to get on the path again- the path of VIRTUE, RIGHTEOUSNESS AND GODLINESS... I honestly believe that is what I am supposed to get from all of this. Though I am sad my friend is gone from me- I am treasuring every silly conversation we had, and every single time I look towards the heavens I will think of Steve and his love of life- and his servants attitude toward our God. I pray his family is blessed and comforted in knowing he is at peace and is with Christ now- probably laughing at me for being stubborn and not using spellcheck.

A special thanks to The blessedcountrymom for all of her prayers and for getting this into the hands of those who will pray. It has been much needed and I thank you all as well, from the bottom of my heart. And I promise to make more time to blog. :)


  1. Thanks for posting this Angie, I know it has been a rough week. I am glad you are so strong through all of this, even if it doesn't feel like you are at times. I pray that his wife and kids will be strong and comforted and make it through this very hard time with peace in their hearts. Love you my friend!
