Reality

Every time I start whining to God, He shows me someone who is really hurting. Every.single.time.

We lost a dear friend this week in a tragic accident, and I just can't wrap my mind around the reality of it. Before noon Tuesday everything changed for that family.

A wife, a mama, a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a friend, a community-state-nationwide helper and lover of people went to be with Jesus.

I think back to when we were both first married and thinking about starting a family. When our boys were little and showing heifers that towered over them. When our boys played sports together. In February 2009 when we woke up to a flooded house, and she and her husband brought hot cocoa and muffins. And so much more.

Michelle made the most of every day! She lived and loved life.

God, I pray you will blanket this family with comfort and peace. Help them to find a new normal and keep the memories alive. And draw them near to You as they cling to the hope of seeing her one day in heaven.

Do you know Jesus? Do you have the hope of seeing your loved ones in heaven? It's the most important decision we will ever make. We don't know if we have tomorrow.

I'm so sorry you are missing a good friend...and her family is missing their loved one. And while your other worries are not so tragic, I know you have many. Prayers for endurance, courage, and wisdom in all you are facing. Blessings, Jennifer

Oh Connie I am so sorry for their loss...and the loss of a wonderful friend.

Know that I will be praying.

Such a reminder to cherish every minute of every day...it truly is a gift that we take for granted.

Many hugs,
Connie
