Kristy Dykes is Home with the Lord

The very wonderful and bizarre thing about the blogosphere is that it opens doors into the lives and hearts of people you would not have known otherwise. This is the case with Kristy Dykes for me.

I didn't actually even know her, only that she posted comments on a blog I lurked on so I started lurking on hers sometimes, too. I learned a little bit about her and her family...that she loved God and yes loved her family. She published some books, some Christian love stories. (the name of her blog)

Last year, she was diagnosed with a brain tumor. Her blog transformed into the chronicle of an ultimate Christian love story as she and her husband invited their friends and readers into the circle of their suffering and thus also displayed the depth of their love for each other and for God.

Yesterday Kristy passed away. She is now in a place where there is no suffering, no tears and where she can fully know just as she has been fully and lovingly and tenderly known all along. There is still pain for the family left behind and I pray for them today and ask you to pray for them, too.

You can read Milton and Kristy's story at Kristy's blog, Christian Love Stories

This is my contribution to Positive Post Tuesday.

This just goes to show you can be effected by people you've never met. I've found not long going on blog sites you really get a sense of knowing people talking to them and bonding with them threw conversations. That was sweet of you to've posted that people, that read that, will also pray for the family and prayer is a powerful tool. I want to mention that i checked your site out threw J-Kayes book blog.
