Life is fleeting. I was reminded of this on Monday morning when I turned on my computer and read that Jennie Perillo had lost her husband to a sudden heart attack. Jennie and their two daughters were left behind.
As I thought about her throughout the day I was reminded of this verse, “As for man, his days are like grass, he flourishes like a flower of the field; the wind blows over it and it is gone. But from everlasting to everlasting the Lord’s love is with those who fear him.” Psalm 103:15-16
Friends wrote Jennie asking how to help and she replied with this post. She asked us all to make a peanut butter pie this Friday and share it with someone you love. “Then hug them like there’s no tomorrow because today is the only guarantee we can count on.” Today hundreds of bloggers have come together to support Jennie and remember Mikey.
I baked this pie with my daughters this morning. I kissed them a few extra times as I thought about how quick our lives come and go.
I hope and pray that Jennie and her daughters will find hope and peace in the midst of their loss.
