Loss Of A Friend!

Beverly JobeI often wonder if anyone reads what we write or if they just look at the pictures! I guess that we all have to choose what is worthy of our time and this week I’ve truly been reminded of what should be important in life. Last week, Bridget received a message from a friend (Beverly Jobe) on Facebook asking about our schedule in Indiana this past weekend. She was planning to come see us on Sunday night in Anderson, IN. We were all extremely shocked to receive a call on Saturday morning from a mutual friend asking us to pray for Beverly. She had just been rushed to the hospital in Indianapolis after suffering a brain aneurysm. The doctors told the family that she had no brain activity and that her chances were very slim… Bevery was pronounced dead at the hospital on Sunday afternoon! She was only 54 years old! Please pray for the entire Jobe family during this time.

We are not guaranteed another second in this life. The breath you just took could be your last. We all put our time, effort and energy into so many things that can be taken so quickly. As you are reading this, please realize that life is short and God has a purpose for your life. Are you pursuing that purpose? Is there something that you need to do today? Please don’t wait… you may miss your opportunity!

    Fellow Triumphant fans and I had a loss this week, too, of a faithful friend, Judy Cobb. It’s such a oomfort to know that she has been welcomed into heaven.

  2. I am so very sorry for the loss of your friend. Any friend of yours is also a friend in Christ of Jimmy’s and mine. We will pray for you and her family and other friends daily.

  3. Yes, I too read what you write – Since we share such a special bond of being brothers and sisters in the Lord, I am always so blessed to hear how things how with all of you. We share in each other joys and sorrows, and in this case, a family’s sorrow. Yes, I will pray for her family. Scripture speaks often of “Today”, as there is no guarantee of another tomorrow.
    I know the family appreciates your love and prayers and asking others to join with you and her family in lifting them up before the Lord. May the Lord’s peace and presence surround them this very moment.

  4. What a joy to know this person is in the hands of a loving God ! Glory! May the the Love of God wrap his arm around those who have been left behind. That you feel the Grace of God during this time. My prayers are with you Love Bro Lammie & Carolyn

  5. So sorry for your loss. Will be praying for this family and all others who have been blessed to know Beverly. It is a hard thing to lose anyone, but even more difficult when it is unexpected. May God wrap His arms around all who are hurting during this time and give them a comfort and peace like only He can. God Bless all of you!

    So sorry to hear about your friend. From one day to the next,from one minute to the next, we don’t know when we will be called home. So many people do not even have the joy involved in knowing our Christ..and that is so sad. Live today, for tomorrow may not be! I will be praying for this family and all her friends.
