Strength beyond our own...




A dear friend of ours lost her 2 month old baby girl , Tess, this past week. The hubby and I have known Jordan and her family our entire life...in fact, she and the hubby are cousins. Jordan's grandmother, Tess, and the hubby's grandfather, Don Carlos "Bug" Lindsey, were brother and sister.

Hearts all over our hometown and abroad have been broken by this tragic loss; however, it has been truly humbling for all to watch this amazingly strong and faithful family handle this trial with such grace and love. The video above was shared by Jordan today on Facebook and it was written by her singer/songwriter brother, Adam, about baby Tess. The message in Adam's song is simply beautiful.

How blessed we are to have the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our lives and to know that , because of his sacrifice, we will see our loved ones again. We love this family dearly and wish them all the peace and love that they so richly deserve at this time.

The message in this video below has brought me great peace this week as I have prayed for both the Tefteller and Ward families.
