Lynette and James,
These beautiful verses were sung at PCPC recently...I think for you and all of us who knew your precious daughter:

Be still, my soul:
your God will undertake
to guide the future as He has the past.
Your hope, your confidence let nothing shake;
all now mysterious shall be bright at last.
Be still, my soul:
the waves and winds shall know
His voice who ruled them while He dwelt below.

Be still my soul:
when dearest friends depart,
and all is darkened in the vale of tears,
then shall you better know His love, His heart,
Who comes to soothe your sorrow and your fears.
Be still, my soul: your Jesus can repay from His own fullness
all He takes away.

Love to you, Cathy

I am glad the guestbook is back up. I do want a copy of the Sydney's Celebrating our Savior service.

I cried as a read your latest posting last week about Sydney's last hours. I appreciate you sharing your feelings and struggles with such honesty and integity while continuing to live by faith and not by sight. You are truly Christ's salt and light in this broken world.

I continue to lift you up in my daily prayers. May the God of comfort fill you with all of His joy and peace through this time.

With Christ's love and mine,
Cynthia

I am a friend of Amy Alford. She sent an email about Sydney many months ago and I have been praying for her and her family ever since. It has not stopped with her departure to be with her Heavenly Father. I am privileged to have been able to know, pray, cry and rejoice for Sydney and her family through the emails and updates I received. Thank you so much for sharing your journey and your precious Sydney. In Him, Linda Davis

Thweatt Family,

Your last message was one of the most difficult for me to read. I couldn't see to read due to all of my tears. James reminds me of myself, as I don't like to keep anything that's not used, but all of those gifts that were given to Sydney are so special. Maybe when there's grandkids someday a special one can get some of those gifts. You'll be so glad you saved them.

I would be so honored to have a tape, CD, DVD or whatever you all can come up with from Sydney's service. Just let those of us who are interested know what to do next.

I'm so thankful that Laurie and Sharon had Sydney on their 2Moms website back when she first got sick. They are such wonderful people and their concert they had here in Northern Virginia (DC suburb)was so wonderful back three or so years ago. What wonderful ladies to have in your lives.

I pray for you all daily that you can have peace and comfort knowing that Sydney is no lnoger suffering and that she is sitting on the lap of our dear Lord and Savior. I also pray for your boys as this is hard for them too.

Blessings,

Stephanie Tyler
Centreville, VA

Psalm 147:3-5 "He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds. He determines the number of the stars and calls them each by name. Great is our Lord and mighty in power; his understanding has no limit." I pray that God would show you JOY for your spirit today.
Trusting in Him,
Mary

I am so heartbroken by your loss. I found out about Sydney through Two Moms website. I have been following your story since Sydney's diagnoses. My son was diagnosed with All 2 months after Sydney. We have not had to face the battles that you had to face. Every time I checked your webpage I rejoiced when she was improving. As I checked in the last few weeks I read the blogs on how she was not doing well. I cannot continue to tell you how amazed I was by your strentgh and the commitment you had in praising the Lord. I am so hurt by this for you I do not understand how this could happen. I apologize if I sound to harsh, I am just in tears for you because it is so real to me. How can you still conitnue to trust in the Lord through all of this? I am a believer but at time I waver not seeing the good in any of this. Again I apologize for my thoughts I just am so amazed at your strentgh and peace in all of this. Sincerely your web follower Angela.

Lynette and James,

I still read Sydney's website everyday. The guestbook has become my daily devotional. It brings me so much peace in my own personal life, as well as a feeling of being blessed to have known Sydney. Sydney was my rock during her 18 month journey. I would be feeling down about something and I would think about Sydney and start to pray. I ALWAYS felt strength and encouragement when I was praying for Sydney. I would always end my prayer by saying Thank You for guiding this very special little girl to share her love and faith in you our God. Your faith as well as Sydney's has been an inspiration and a new beginning for so many people. I have never lost a child, but I lost a parent. There is no comparison. But, I remember looking at pictures and feeling my heart ache more than I could have ever imagined. Each day, week and month that passed, when I looked at pictures or thought about my dad, the tears would become less and the tears turned into smiles and a warmness and comfort filled my heart. One day you will be able to smile at Sydney's photos, you may still cry, but they will be HAPPY TEARS. Love, Valerie

Romans 15:13 "May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit."
You are loved and prayed for today.

Be still, my soul: the Lord is on your side;
bear patiently the cross of grief or pain;
leave to your God to order and provide;
in every change He faithful will remain.
Be still, my soul: your best, your heav'nly Friend--
through thorny ways leads to a joyful end.

Praying for you during this very personal time.
Love, Cathy Evans

Lynette & James we too have been praying. We have not met you but knew of your trial through Molly Huffines who serves at Joni & Friends with our family. In 1988 I received a great comfort from a little booklet entitled Death of a Little Child by Dr. J. Vernon McGee. I wanted to share with you. . .
There is a story of sweetness and beauty which enlightens the heart of every parent who has lost a child. It concerns a custom among the shepherd folk of the Alps. In the summertime when the grass in the lower valley withers and dries up, the shepherds seek to lead their sheep up a winding, thorny, and stony pathway to the high grazing lands. The sheep, reluctant to take the difficult pathway infested with dangers and hardships, turn back and will not follow. The shepherds make repeated attempts, but the timid sheep will not follow. Finally a shepherd reaches into the flock and takes a little lamb and tucks it gently under his arm, then he reaches again and takes another lamb, placing it under the other arm. He starts up the precipitous pathway. Soon the mother sheep start to follow and afterward the entire flock. At last they ascend the torturous trail to green pastures.
The Great Shepherd of the sheep, The LORD Jesus Christ, our Savior, has reached into the flock and He has picked up your little lamb. He did not do it to rob you but to lead you out and upward. He has richer and greener pastures for you, He wants you to follow.

Will you follow Him? You will, if you catch of glimpse
of:

The Good Shepherd on the height,
Or climbing up the starry way,
Holding your little lamb asleep.
While like the mumur of the sea
Soundeth that voice along the deep,
Saying, "Arise, and follow Me."

So many are praying for you. So many love you in Christ Jesus. Look upward, we who have faith in the new life God promises are on an upward journey to green, glorious feilds and we will be united with our children, who will not be sick, but whole and alive and joyous to introduce us to The Sheperd.
