A Tribute to Gabby

Gabrielle was 15 when she was taken in life to death while doing one of her favorite things-riding an ATV. I was shocked and horrified as anyone would be. An acquaintance's daughter taken so early in life! What could I do or say to comfort her family! Words just don't seem to come to me at this time. I am in grief too. How do I understand? What is the purpose? Why so young? Why, Why, Why?
HOWEVER as I live my faith I remember I am not to question why!
Genesis 18:14 reads-Is anything too hard for the Lord?
Psalm 121:1-2 reads-I will lift my eyes to the hills - from whence comes my help? My help comes from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.
Matthew 28:20 reads- Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.
Philippians 4:19 reads- My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory by Jesus Christ.
Psalm 56:8 reads- You number my wanderings; put my tears in Your bottle; are they not in Your book?
HE holds your tears in a bottle, and our tears. Not one of them falls to the ground without Him intervening to save them. We often feel alone in our grief. That God has forgotten us. He is always doing something! Even when He is seemingly doing nothing. He is doing something. He lets us bury our heads in His chest, and He wipes our tears as He wipes His own!
Dawn, Allen & Allen Jr. Let God collect your tears and let you bury your heads in His chest as you grieve.

I heard this from KL whose son is a friend and we were both tearing up by the end of the story. No parent should have to loose a child this way.
