Wednesday Word

This is the day the Lord hath made I will rejoice and be glad in it.  Psalm 118:24

 A dear friend to so many, left this world, much too soon!  She was an encourager and friend to many.

She loved us well and we are all better for having been a part of her life. 

She loved her family dearly, showing us how to love ours.

She would remind us often that “This is the Day that the Lord hath made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!” 

When we learned of the home going of our dear friend, Jan Rice, it did not feel like a rejoicing time.

 It felt sad, the world seem to grow a little dimmer.  And yet, we could all hear her whisper in our hearts,

“Rejoice, be glad, this is the day the Lord hath made, I am now with Him!!!  Let Him fill your hearts with love and laughter in my honor.”

We will try “Miss Jan!”  We will try!!  We will try to follow your example, all the while missing you!

You know it may not be the saying of a good bye to a friend, left for heaven, much too soon.  It may be the loss of a home, a career, it may be sickness

or the unknowing of how you will make it through another day.  Whatever it is, we can rest in the promises of our God.  We can rejoice because He loves


But I will sing of your strength; I will sing aloud of your steadfast love in the morning. For you have been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress.  Psalm 59:16

He is more than enough for whatever we need!!!

Lord, I ask you today to minister healing and wholeness to those that have found their way to this Wednesday Word.  May you be their Peace, comforting them if their heart is broken, their Strength if they are weary and their Encouragement if they are downcast.  May they experience Your Presence afresh and anew, trusting You with all the days of their lives!!!  I thank You that You hear and answer our prayers, according to your will for our lives.

In the precious name of Jesus!  Amen
