Please Pray For This Family

Please pray for this Family. There’s a very special Family in mind, and you most likely don’t know them, but also most likely, you know someone just like them.

A year ago today, in what was simply another ordinary day for this Family, the phone rang that night.

“Your daughter has been in an accident”.

Their precious daughter was severely injured and she was not expected to make it through the injuries.

Somehow she did.

But in a fate most of us can’t even remotely comprehend, nine days later, she unexpectedly passed.

To go to the edge of the cliff, then pulled back from it, and then to suddenly plunge unexpectedly over, breaks my heart to think about.

In a CaringBridge update yesterday, I was reminded of this “anniversary”, and will honor their request to never miss an opportunity to tell my son or my wife, “I love you”.

Thankful for the little things

Thankful for the little things.

Like driving safely for four hours and making it home without incident.

We passed several vehicle accidents along I-75 and I-4, on our way home yesterday.

Two of the vehicles were overturned. We pray no one was seriously injured.

Several cars had flat tires. A minor inconvenience, but a potentially dangerous place to be – major interstate roadside with cars traveling 70 – 80 mph.

It’s so easy to take a routine trip for granted. It only takes a second for everything to change. Just ask the people we saw along the roadside.

Simply being mindful of this helps keep me “presently humbled”.
