A challenge was placed on twitter today and I would like to share it with you:

“Blog friends can we do a blog day of silence tomorrow? That will remind us all to pray for Julee & also for others who have lost loved ones.”

I would like to challenge you to take a blogging break tomorrow (Wed) and take that same time to pray for those in your life who have had some hard news this weekend.  I can think of several friends who had a rough weekend and by looking on facebook today, many are hurting.

Tomorrow the Turner family will celberate Matt’s life and will need you uplifting them in every way possible.  Please call out to the Father on their behalf and ask that His mercy, comfort and peace washover them.

Also several have set up some ways to help Julee and Preslee.  Some are listed below.

Jenna and several others are organizing a silent auction and keepin track of those who are offering product parties or other things on their behalf.  The master list is being kept here.

KCutie Designs, my etsy store, will donate 50% of all sales in the month of October to sweet Preslee.  You can check out the items here.

Kelly at Kelly’s Korner is organizing an encouragment calendar.  If you would like to participate, you may contact her through this post.

An account has been established at Summit Bank and Southern Bancorp.  Donations may be made at any location or by donation to the address below:
The Preslee Turner College Fund
PO Box 965
Arkadelphia, Arkansas 71923

Julee shared some thoughts today on her blog.  Her feelings are very raw, but so fresh and real.

For others curious about details and coverage of the story, here’s a link to Today’s THV.

Much will be said of each of us when we are gone.  May we only strive to live a life where a community wraps our family and remembers us in a similar positive way.
