My daughter's God-daughter
« on: April 20, 2018, 03:59:40 pm »
Please can I ask prayers for my daughter(DD2)'s God-daughter, and her parents and sister. The four year-old was at the beach with her family and was hit by a freak wave and swept away - her Mum tried to go after her but only just managed to save her other daughter. They have been told that she died almost instantly, which in the circumstances is probably a blessing, but it has obviously left her family devasted.

My daughter is in a mess herself- she loved having her as a God-daughter - and although she is only 32 she has already lost 4 of her university friends.

Your prayers and good thoughts would be very much appreciated.

Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.

I am praying for them.  So very sorry to hear about such devastating circumstances.  :(

I am so sorry to hear that such a tragedy occurred.  You and your daughter, as well as the family, will be in my thoughts.

So much sympathy for that grieving family and the little girl herself. And for your daughter.  I'm thankful the mother and older daughter survived, but what an awful experience for them all.

How awful!  Holding them all up.
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

Thank you all so much for your prayers and good wishes.
Let God rise up, let his enemies be scattered;
    let those who hate him flee before him.
As smoke is driven away, so drive them away;
    as wax melts before the fire,
    let the wicked perish before God.
