  3. I am so sorry to see this post this morning! I started following Michelle's blog shortly before she started talking about her battle with cancer. She was a lovely person with a beautiful talent for decorating. She loved her boys so much and seemed to completely cherish her role as a mother. I will be praying for you all. I pray that a peace that passeth all understanding will be yours at this time. Love, ~ Jamie

  4. I'm so sorry to hear this...I have been following Michelle's blog for quite some time...she was amazing and shared so much of her talent, her family, her life with us.I never met her personally or spoke a word to her personally...but I feel like we were friends. She will be so missed in blog land...she was one of the best. Now my prayers have switched from Michelle...who is in the arms of Jesus...to the family left behind. Just remember...no more pain...no more sorrow...no more tears for Michelle...and I pray that comforts you in the days ahead.
    God Bless your family!

  7. Thank you for taking the time to post this sad news in the midst of your grief. Every time I see a picture of Michelle's beautiful décor/DIY/crafts on the internet (which is often), I have wondered how she is doing and would ask God to be with her. Please know that there are so many of us who have never met Michelle but we will miss seeing her creative talents and reading her wonderful style of writing and we care deeply for her family which we have also gotten to know through her posts. I also have a son named Logan and I think especially think of your little guy right now. May the Lord bless you and keep you and give you the strength and comfort you need at this difficult time.

  17. I was lucky enough to find Michelle's blog three years ago and never missed a post. I think she was one of the most talented designers on the web. Her photos of projects and her home décor were always sources of ideas for me. I truly admired her so much and feel as if I have lost someone I knew, even though I never met Michelle. I know by sharing her battle with cancer, she helped people that she never knew about. I will miss her dearly and want to sent my heart felt sympathy to her family. I'll keep you in my prayers.

With deepest sympathy for your loss...I will keep your family and Michelle in my prayers always.

  33. I only discovered Michelle's blog in August and really regretted I hadn't found it earlier. She had such a wonderful writing style, making you feel you immediately knew her and wanted to be her friend. I also felt a connection to her because I live in NC and visit Morehead City frequently. Now, Michelle is in the arms of the Lord, so my prayers are with her husband, sons and other family members. May peace and happiness and good memories be yours.

  38. This is so painful, even though I know she has finished the race successfully that we all are still running. Just as those before me have said, though I never met her, she has been a shining part of my life and I have loved her. There has rarely been a day that I haven't lifted her in prayer for a miracle. She has touched so many, many lives in such a positive and faithfilled way. She has glorified God by her life here on the blog and she will be so very missed. I had a very bad feeling on the ninth and was concerned this might have happened. I'm so grateful you let us know, even while you grieve. I send all my prayers and condolences to her family and I do hope you leave the blog up. She shared so much of herself here. He courage, her devotion to God and her family are shown here. She is such an inspiration in countless ways. I'm just not ready to let go yet. Thank you for sharing her with us. God bless you all through Jesus Christ our Savior.

  42. What a lovely and special person Michelle was. Even though I never met her, I can tell she was a woman filled with love and light. It is easy to see, in the photos that she posted here on her blog, that she adored her family and lived a life that was happy and fulfilled. To her loving husband and sons, I am so sorry you've lost such a vital part of your lives. I hope that over time, you will be able to think of her and remember the wonderful times you all shared together and not just the heart breaking end of her life. God bless the Edwards family and bring you comfort in the days, months and years ahead.

  44. Michelle was my favorite blogger. She was so brilliantly creative. I know I didn't know her in person but I felt connected to her and will feel her absence. Her faith through her fight against cancer was inspirational. She fought the good fight of trusting in the Lord. I'm so sorry for your loss and I will continue to pray for you all when I think of Michelle - which has been and will be often. I'm thankful for her faith and knowing that I will get to meet her in the next life. My deepest sympathy.

  45. To Elaine MIL thank you. This I know was what Michelle wanted her followers to know. To her sweet husband whom she loved dearly: I have prayed daily for you too as I do believe your strong shoulders bore a heavy load that Jesus says Come unto Me all you who are weary and heavy loaded and I will give you rest.. . To Michelle's sister, how she loved you and wrote about you to me and how happy she felt to have you near...oh For Keegan, she sent a photo of you the day you got your license!! And I pinned it on a board in my kitchen so I'd pray daily for you this fall...and for Logan...she sent your silly face picture with her! It was fun to have fun with Mom. And I've prayed every day too. Keep going to Sunday School and church--that's what she told me she wanted--and never forget that lots of people are praying for all of you. And where two or three of us are gathered in Jesus Name He is here with us. Know the prayers for you will continue during the days, months, and even years ahead.

  52. Thank you for posting this. I had a feeling things weren't good when there was an absence of posts. I am so sorry to hear this. Although we never met, Michelle and I shared many private conversations about cancer. I am 43 and lost my husband a year ago to cancer while going through breast cancer myself and my best friend going through it also. I know what you are going through. Keep her spirit alive through happy memories. The kids will get their strength through you. It is the absolute worse thing in the world to watch someone you love so much suffer from this dreadful disease. To stay positive we always say my husband didn't lose his battle he had a "VICTORY" over life. The word victory is now symbolic of my husband. Michelle's life was VICTORIOUS! She was a beautiful person with a beautiful soul. May she rest in peace with no more suffering. Look for signs from her. They will be everywhere. God Bless! XO

  53. I am truly sad and so sorry to read this. Michelle was one of the sweetest people on earth. Her willingness to share her talent, family and home with readers of her blog was always amazing.

Please know that she will not be forgotten and she will be missed. Mary From Virginia

  55. Such a loss to this world. I grieve with you all (her family) and took some time this morning to go back through some of my favorite blog posts of her's. I never met her in real life but she touched my life in ways that many IN my real life have never come close. I wish for peace for all those she touched as we enter a new chapter of life with Michelle deeply nestled in our hearts, minds and souls.

    Peace.

  59. My heart is filled with deep sadness as I write this. I knew when I saw Sweet Something Designs in my inbox that this was the end of the very long road that Michelle, her husband, children and friends have been traveling. I hope that you know that countless people have been praying for all of you. Michelle amazed me with her ability to move forward and send posts...and how I have missed them...She was a fighter and I am thankful that I was able to spend time with her and her designs, news of the family and her long battle through her site. God be with you all, and I thank our Loving God that Michelle is nestled in his arms. With Love and Respect, Kaal

  60. I was so very sad to learn of her passing from her sisters posts on FB. I too will think of her every time I see her beautiful work on Pnterest. What a beautiful loving person. The family should be so proud to have had her as long as they did. Wish I could have met her. I would have been honroed. I know she gave one Hell of a fight for her boys. My heart is very heavy.
    Best Wishes from Mt Hood Oregon and Thank You!

  62. I commented yesterday but had to come back today. I cried and prayed last night. I was thinking about how very courageous she was during her fight, and I was always amazed that she continued to do what she loved - making things around her more beautiful - even through the most difficult of times. She truly is an inspiration to me in SO many ways. She had a decorating style that few possess. She was very gifted. She will certainly be missed in the blogging community.

  63. I a so sorry to hear this. I started following Michelle just this past September and was so inspired I went back and read everything from the beginning.

Even though I never got the chance to meet her I can see she was a very talented and sweet lady. My prayers are with you and your family.

  71. My deepest sorrow for your loss. I just found Michelle's blog very recently…..I grew up in Joplin. I was very drawn to her blog and her love for her husband, boys, home and her Lord Jesus. I have been praying fervently for y'all in recent days. I know the Lord has been prompting me to pray for you.
    Dear Lord, please be with this hurting family. May they rest in Your comfort & peace. Jesus, may You be the grace sufficient they need to meet each moment of each day. Please be their strength in this time of difficulty, for when we are weak You are strong. Father be their comfort. May they draw near to You that You might draw near to them. Please God, be all they need You to be. In the powerful Name of Jesus, Amen. God bless you. Draw near to God in these days and the days ahead, that you might be close to where your precious loved one is….in the presence of Jesus in glory. May all your Hope be in Christ, Dawn Bridges

  103. As one of Michelle's blogger friends, I have posted a tribute to her on my blog. If you care to read it, here is the link.
    http://thingsthatarelovely.blogspot.com/2014/01/my-tribute-to-michelle-edwardssweet.html

    I think I may speak for many of Michelle's readers when I say that I hope you will leave her blog on-line for a few months or longer. Those of us who loved her design and came to love her as a person while reading about her courageous battle; may find inspiration looking through past posts and photographs. It's sort of a blogger's equivalent to reminiscing over a family photo album. Blessings to your family.

  106. Praying for your whole family during this difficult and sad time. I have come to think of Michelle as my online friend in Jesus - saying prayers for her often as God brought her to mind. May you all be comforted in the truth that she is in all perfect peace with Christ now. All pain, illness and sadness are gone. What a blessing to have the true hope of Heaven! Love, Heather

  111. My heart is so very broken for your loss, Michelle is one of the most talented ladies I've every 'met' she inspired me with her grit and love of spray paint, she gave me courage to look at things differently than what they first appeared. I pray for your family, that the boys will always have beautiful memories of their mom and that the pain will ease for you all. I am so so sorry for the loss of this beautiful person.

  121. I feel devastated right now. I can imagine the loss for your family. She gave it her all to fight to stay with all of you. Her body is at rest now but her spirit lives on, I feel it on her blog. Her gifts she shared her touched so many of us and she won't be forgotten. To read her writing on her makes me cry. She so wanted to beat that beast and live. We all don't know why the timing of things like this happen but when they do it's hard to wrap around the brain why. But I pray for you, her family, as so many of us are. She was as she titled her blog, a Sweet Something. She had talent in spades and a love of things that ran deep but the deepest was for her family.

    My sincere, deepest condolences. I will miss her writing, her photography and all her designs. She will always be loved and missed and thought of. She was unforgettable.

    Hugs,
    Kim
