Good news and sad news, all on the same day

The good news is that my daughter and her boyfriend do not have covid-19. That is to say, the test came back negative. Thank you, everyone, who responded with such love to my post asking for prayer.

The sad news is that my aunt died today. She was only a few years older than me. She was beautiful and brilliant. She has been an important part of my life, for most of my life. I believe she is now in a far better place, joyfully reunited with precious loved ones that have gone on before.

But I miss her. So much.

    Oh, Linda!

    I’m so sorry to hear about your aunt ❤ No doubt she is in a better place, but it still hurts.

    I, too, would love to hear more about her when / if you are up to it.

    What a blessing about your daughter and her boyfriend's test results! I hope they are fully healed and back to themselves again soon.

    So sorry to hear about the loss of your aunt. The knowledge that she was a believer is reason for rejoicing, even in pain. I rejoice with you in both cases.

    I’m so sorry for your (temporary) loss, but glad she is with Jesus and you can look forward to seeing her again, although it can be so hard to wait! 😦

    How bittersweet to have such good and painful news at the same time. I’m glad your daughter and her partner got negative Covid results, but I’m so sorry about your aunt. It sounds like she played a big part in your life, and she’ll always be a big part of your heart. Life can seem incredibly unfair sometimes. It must hurt so much, but I know nothing I can say will make it any easier. Just know I’m thinking of you, as are all of your readers & your family. Sending lots of love 🌹xxxxxxx

    I’m late, but still want to tell you how very sorry I am for the loss of someone who you loved so much. It’s a sad fact that the more we love someone, the more we ache when they leave a void. But when you feel her loss, praise God for her love.
