Losing someone you work with hurts, from Ntate Ramolao (the first) and now Sis Ouma.” He said. “The thought that you’ll never see someone who’s so dear to you ever again in the physical is such a heart-wrenching experience, something you wouldn’t wish for the worst of your enemies.”

– Hope is a wonderful thing that allows us to rejoice in advance.
– We can rejoice in the confident hope we have in God.
– We do face storms in life, but then we must be patient.
– Keep on praying and live in hope, He will come through for you.

PRAYER: Lord, help me to be joyful as I live with the hope that You have good things in store for me. May I be patient when I am going through difficult times, knowing that You will be with me and may I never forget to pray. Amen.
Have a blessed Tuesday.
Kind Regards
And that was her Last Words to Me
