Therefore we are always confident, knowing that, whilst we are at home in the body, we are absent from the Lord: (For we walk by faith, not by sight:) We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. (2 Corinthians 5:6-8 KJV)
A well know writer and friend has gone to be with Her Lord. April Lorier became a friend and has written several articles on this blog. April was the author of God’s Battered Child: Journey From Abuse to Leader. Here are the blogs she produced April Lorier Perspective – God Woman Blog – Christian Nature. They have all been made inactive. She also contributed to Nature Blog Network
Here is an excerpt from Yahoo:
April Lorier, Author and EncouragerInspirational author, poet, writer and Christian blogger. Children’s rights activist who successfully fought for the Child Abuse and Neglect Reporting Act (CANRA) which was signed into law by Ronald Reagan. Encourager of Christian believers worldwide.
I know that she has been ailing for sometime and I do not have details about her death. Her websites have been removed, but we still have some of her articles here. It may take a day or two to find all the links to her sites, but they will be corrected.
April found my blog not long after I started it up. She began giving me tips on how to raise my ratings and just encouraged me to continue to develop this blog by honoring Our Lord. We exchanged many phone calls and became good friends. Never met her, she lived in California and I am here in Florida, but distance didn’t get between our friendship. She allowed me to repost several of her blogs and she shared links to my articles on her blog.
Now her blogs have been removed and I am glad some of her articles are still here to be enjoyed. But as for April, she could care less about what is going on here. She is in the presence of Her Lord, whom she loved. Her faith has become site.
April, you will be missed.

Praise God for the hope we have in Him, this world isn’t our last stop :)
Such a lovely tribute Lee to someone I was so privileged to call my friend. One day soon we’ll be reunited :) maranatha!
I have a feeling it won’t be long before all of us will join her. What a day that will be… :) Soon, Lord!
What a day that will be! When my Jesus I shall see!
What a lovely tribute, Lee. It’s wonderful that you did this.
I will miss her for sure. We had a friendly rivalry going on the Nature Blog Network. We used to swap back and forth on who was ahead on the Spirituality section. In fact, that is how I knew something was wrong when she slipped down to 0 hits. She loved nature and birds in particular. Oh, but now she sees so clear.
