The Copponex Family

Hi friends!

Thanks for praying for Rachael and Greg, as they said they feel every prayer. Even though we have become friends mostly through blogging, and our sisters are BFF, I feel like I've known her forever. Many of you probably read her blog... I know it's always one of my top 5 to check out! She is so funny! I love her take on things and her sense of humor. AND her kids are so cute!

Tripp's memorial service was so amazing. Words can't really describe it. I'm not good with words anyway; describing how I feel. But I can say this past week and watching Rachael from afar go through this tragedy has changed me. I've wanted to write all week, but I just don't know what to say. I think about Rachael and Greg and their family no less than 30 times a day. And, then, I read her blog and have to just stand amazed. To see the Lord literally holding the two of them up... it's... I don't know, beautiful. It's like worship. I cry in sadness, then cry at the way God is seeing them through this.

As the Copponex Family grieves and heals together, there's a few of us "mom bloggers" who would love to do more for them. To cover them in prayer over the next year plus is certainly one of the things we want to do. If you would like to send a card, please comment with your email and I'll send it to you. If you feel so inclined to fix them a meal, here's a calendar that has been set up for them, just click here.

We love you, Rachael, Greg, Macy, Sarah, Larry and Terry!

This is beautiful, truly beautiful. I too have found myself thinking of them over and over since Tripp's passing. I didn't go to the funeral service but I did send a card expressing my sympathy. They truly are being lifted up by the lord.
