Good-bye, Lauren Hill

"Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His faithful servants."
Psalm 116:15
(NIV)

The Lord's faithful servant received her perfect healing today,
as God called her home to rest forever close to His heart.

Lauren Hill (1995-2015)

Have tissues handy before watching THIS VIDEO.

Bless her dear heart.
Lauren left a permanent, unforgettable mark of kindness upon our world.
Even in her darkest days, her mind was tirelessly upon others who are suffering.
She gave until she could literally give no more.
Such a dear, precious, sweet girl.

Lauren has run her race and finished her course, leaving behind memories of a selfless life.
Only the dear Lord will ever know the full extent of the reach of her influence and positive spirit.

My heart breaks as I think of her dear parents, siblings, 
and all who grieve today and mourn her passing.
May the God of all comfort hold them extra close and somehow make them see how much they are loved and supported during the difficult days that lie ahead.

Let us pray hard for Lauren's family and loved ones and all who were touched by her passing.

Good-bye, dear Lauren.
You left this world a better...kinder place.
We will forever cherish your memory in our hearts.

  4. I just read about this. So sad for all of us left behind on this side of eternity. But I can only imagine Lauren meeting her Savior face-to-face for the first time! Maybe they're playing a pick-up game of basketball!

    Prayers will continue for her family and friends. And let's pray that the spiritual legacy she left behind will spread the Good News to many.

    GOD BLESS.

  5. Such sadness for Lauren's family and friends on earth -- such glory for Lauren. "Just think of stepping on sure, and finding it heaven." Heaven has more pull since my mother's arrival there in November.

  6. Hi Cheryl! This was such a story of triumph to me. This young woman just shone, didn't she? And she captured the love of so many in the world. I wonder how her parents raised such an amazing daughter. I pray that I did half the job that they did.

  7. Lord, comfort her family, friends, and all who loved her.
    She's home in Heaven and forever with the Lord. We will meet one day.
    1 Corinthians 2:9 But, as it is written, "What no eye has seen, nor ear heard, nor the heart of man conceived, what God has prepared for those who love him.
