Today is a stormy day.
Outside the weather is cloudy and the rain is falling...
But it's a stormy day in my heart as well, as I lost a friend early this morning.
I grieve for her family and friends, and for the empty spot that she once filled in our lives, but I rejoice in knowing that today, she is with Jesus.

Music has always spoken strongly to me. I find that when I am hurting, the words of certain songs bring me comfort. This song has never seemed more fitting.

I'll praise you in this storm
and I will lift my hands
for You are who You are
no matter where I am
and every tear I've cried
You hold in your hand
You never left my side
and though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm

Father, thank you for being a God who knows us intimately and loves us anyway. Thank you for crying when we cry and hurting when we hurt. Give Diandra and the friends and family what they need right now, whether that be comfort, joy, or a time to grieve. Give them these things and make yourself known to them so they can feel whole in Your presence.

I just read your blog post. I'm so sorry for your loss. I'm glad to hear that in the midst of your hurt you know that God is still in control and all loving. Hang in there girl. Cori Derksen (one of the photogs going to the workshop)
