During our time of sorrow, lets stand together and not pull it apart. Realize that each person is different and will grieve in ways you may not understand.
Be patient and find ways to support each other. Disappointment and shock need to be expressed and released. Sadness and sorrow can be so heavy and paralyzing. You might struggle with this thought, but grief and anguish can be a blessing.
No one can prepare you for a loss; it comes like a swift wind. A person that departs from this earth never truly leaves, for they are still alive in our hearts and minds, through us, they live on. May the soul of Studley rest in peace.
Matthew 5:4 – Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
We extend our most sincere condolences to the Peter (Studley) Mendelsohn Family.

Now to encourage you as I know we are all disappointed this CE/RV has not occurred let me share this with you:
Disappointment is a delayed appointment. Disappointment will strengthen but will never destroy. When disappointment travels towards you, you must be determined to meet it with courage.
Never give in to disappointment, hopelessness or despair.
When you overcome disappointment, you acquire the strength to change your disappointment and turn it into an appointment.
Nobody can avoid pain. Pain is inevitable and pain comes through disappointment but you can do something about your situation and be determined to walk through the darkness of disappointment into the light of your appointment, your destination. I heard someone say once, “Smooth seas do not make skillful sailors”.
You cannot run away from trouble, trouble will always come. You cannot avoid pain, it is inevitable. The difficulties of life are intended to make us better. A path with no obstacles leads nowhere.
The world is a hard place, it is full of disappointments, woes and troubles but we can turn this around and create an opportunity to turn this into a blessing.
You can change the face of disappointment, embrace it, meet it as a friend and turn it into an appointment. “Every disappointment is a blessing”, this is a quote we are all familiar with.
At the time of disappointment we may not see the blessing but after the season of disappointment comes the season of appointment.
Be ready to embrace your current disappointment in order to see the season of your appointment. See every disappointment as a disguise for blessing and soon enough you will begin to see your blessing emerge through the pain of disappointment.
Learn to convert your difficulties into opportunities.
Disappointment is a message that leads us to our destination of appointment. So let your joy scream across the pain of disappointment.
Today, I encourage you take heart! Turn on the light of your appointment and the darkness of disappointment will fade away from you!
John 16:13 - in this world you will have trouble but take heart, I have overcome the world.
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not to your own understanding, in all your ways Acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.
HUGS TO YOU ALL.
