Please Pray!

This is not what I expected to be posting today...I was expecting to tell you about a wonderful day spent with my in-laws and how my son met another aunt and uncle for the first time, but that is the farthest thing from what happened.

The Colonel's brother and his wife were killed by a tornado last night as they travelled from Colorado to Kansas. It was such a freak thing and so devestating to all of us. Our family is grateful that they went together and that they are rejoicing with Jesus today, but we miss them so much, and we're sad that they were taken from us so suddenly and when they were so young. Click here for the news story.

There is a lot more to say, but i don't have the energy for it right now.

I am praying for both families.

I can come, if you need anything. Please don't hesitate to ask.

My heart dropped into my stomach. I know how much you were looking forward to seeing them and from her comments how excited she was to see Lil Major. I am so so sorry.

I'm so sorry - I know we don't know one another, but I knew Kim through Laura Coppinger's blog and then through helping Kim with her own website, and I just wanted to let you know I'm praying for you and your family. May God wrap you all in his comfort and peace.

That is so devastating and I felt the breath literally sucked out of me when I read it... I'm so sorry for you and your family, and we will be praying for you all!

So sorry Sally. We will be praying hard for you and B's family. I can't imagine. I pray you will all feel God's comfort and love thru the pain.

Marge said...

Tell Brian how sorry we are. We hurt for you and your family. It is crazy to me how that can happen. God's timing is so not ours and I struggle to remember His sovereignty right now. I am glad they know Jesus and that you guys do, too. Love you

I read about this heartbreaking story over at The Goen's Gang blog... and even though I don't know you or anyone involved at all, as a fellow Christian I am moved to deep sorrow and prayers for you. And tears.

I am so sorry to hear of your devestating loss. May the Lord be with you and yours.
