A Most Beloved Sister

The past couple of days have been very rough. I still can't believe that my sister is gone. I feel this empty void inside of me. She, along with my mom, was my best friend. My mom, my sister, and I would talk all the time, especially in the evenings before going to sleep. About three years ago, she started to feel unwell, and about two and a half years ago, she was diagnosed with Pulmonary Hypertension; the type that she was diagnosed with is a very rare form of it that only 200 people in the world have. She suffered for two and a half years until Monday, December 12, when she was called up to heaven at the age of 27. I truly miss my sister, but I know that she is in heaven and isn't suffering anymore.

My sister's name was Sunny. She had a blog called Peering Out My Window. She loved to take pictures of everything. When she got sick two years ago, she was limited to what she could take pictures of since she couldn't go out like she used to. She started to take pictures of what she saw outside of the window she was at, whether it was in the house or in the car when she was feeling well enough to get outside of the house. She started Peering Out My Window, but unfortunately she didn't post very much on it. I'm posting here some of the pictures here that she took. I invite you to look at her blog.

Thank you everyone for your condolences over the past week. I very much appreciated all of the Bible verses that everyone has been commenting here: I need to trust in God now more than ever. I truly believe that I have some of the most caring followers in all of the blogging world, and I thank you all for that.

 God Bless,
 God Bless, Miss Elizabeth Bennet


  1. I am so very sorry for your loss. I know what it is like to lose a sister and best friend, but knowing that she is no longer hurting will help the healing if you let it.

  2. I just wanted to let you know that you are in my prayers.

  3. I am so sorry. I will be praying for you! Your sister's photos are gorgeous!

  4. I am so sorry. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

    Your sister's photos are amazing.

  5. Thank you for sharing about Sunny and for posting some of her amazing photos for us! I can tell just by looking at her photography what a beautiful soul she was. Capturing such amazing shots, especially of the animals, must have taken patience and a truly artistic eye. I enjoyed reading the first post on your sister's blog and plan on reading more.

    In the past few years I've lost both of my grandmothers and two precious older ladies who I cared for (both had Alzheimer's) so I know how hard it can be to loose those close to you (even though I can't quite imagine what it's like to loose such a dear sister). It is true that time can be a great healer, but the best healer is God. Rest and trust in Him, He loves you so much! How wonderful to know that Sunny is safe in the arms of Jesus and to have the promise of seeing her again!
    You continue to be in my prayers dear friend! Much love to you!

  6. I will keep you and your family in prayers.
    I think I visted your sister's blog a few months ago.

  7. I am also deeply sorry the loss of your dear Sister. My heart ached for you when I read this posting and saw her lovely photos. They were such a beautiful reflection of, I'm sure ~ a beautiful soul!

    Thank you for sharing her with us. May I suggest... Be sure to write down your most precious memories of her in a journal. It is something you will look upon in years to come and cherish.

    You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers.

    God bless you, Honey.
