Girls Write Out
Friday, January 25, 2008
Celeste is one of precious blogger friends who checks in with us every day. Six months ago today her precious 13-year-old daughter Chelsea Rae went home to Jesus after a six month battle with bone cancer. Chelsea is a very special girl. Go to Celeste's blog here to see some video. Her faith and courage through this trial is an inspiring story!

Lord, I pray you hold Celeste and Jeff in your arms. Be so close to them that they feel Your breath touch them. Cement the good memories in their hearts and let the bad ones melt away. Thank you that Chelsea Rae and the impact she had on so many people. Let her little sister treasure the memories they made together too. Amen. Amen.

Celeste, you mean so much to all of us here. Thank you for being our friend. Thank you for the courage and faith that inspires us all. You are an amazing woman! I thank God He brought you into our lives!

Having a 13-year old daughter myself, I cannot imagine the pain of losing her. I really liked the poem she included.

Celeste, I will be praying for you as well. It breaks my heart when, in this sinful fallen world, a parent must say goodbye to their precious child! You're in my prayers.

Celeste, I read your blog and had to stop because it brought tears to my eyes.

I hope you are able to feel the comfort that we are sending your way.

No parent should lose a child. May our Lord give you His peace. HE knows what you're feeling!

My prayers are with you right now.
