.....finding the words


do you ever feel as if you cannot find the words for prayers that are so badly needed?
i am struggling with that today.
i am struggling to find the words to help bring this lovely soul safely back into the arms of her parents.

i am asking all of you, whatever your beliefs may be, to PLEASE pray for Chelsea and her family. Chelsea is our cousins niece and has been missing since Thursday.

thank you.

i have said this before...
and i always mean it when i say it...
although tonight it may have more bearing...
hold those you love closely.



  1. Oh Kollen, I was already so struck by this story which has been all over our local news and papers. She seems like such a lovely girl and just the age that my husband coaches. I was just watching the rescue efforts on TV and it makes my heart actually hurt. Now knowing that you have this personal connection makes it even more heart-rending. You are right - there are no words, only prayer and hope.


  2. This happened extremely close to my home. My husband and I went to volunteer to search, but they did now want help at that time. They had search and rescue dogs looking and did not disrupt her scent. We took flyers instead and passed them out. We will help when they allow volunteers. We will also continue to pray for her safe return.

  3. I'm so sorry to hear fo this Kolleen, I hope she is returned safely very soon.

    Love and hugs

  4. Oh Kolleen..I immediately lifted Chelsea's name to Jesus.

    Blessings, prayers and love to you and your entire family, Terri

  5. For sure I will pray, pray and pray again. This is so sad, but I know that God never sleeps and is already working in and through this matter!
