It is amazing how a tragic event can make you cling to your loved ones like never before. You start calling all the time, saying "I love you", hugging comforting and bonding together like never before. Yesterday our family received a call saying that our 13 year old cousin had been in an accident and had died. We were shocked, stunned, a reminded that life is so fragile. Agony for our extended family overwhelmed us and we are still in a state of disbelief. It is that type of thing that you don't think could ever happen to you or the ones you love, and then it does. 10 years ago or so divorce happened to one of my aunts and that was one of those things you thought would never happen, and now this. But we are comforted by the thought that God is still on His throne, and He is still in control, and somehow this is part of His marvelous plan.

I ask for your prayers, for us as we leave Monday for Little Rock Arkansas, that we would be able to be a comfort and witness to our family. Pray for my uncle John and Aunt Leslie as they mourn the loss of the middle child. Pray that they will find and cling to the hope that is in Christ.
