Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires...courage.

A tragedy....

Many of you probably already know about the tragic accident that took place this week with Brooke. However, if you don't know who I'm talking about, just know that a precious life was taken this week and the family will need lots of prayer. She was a mama of two young children, and though they have wonderful, loving grandparents and great-grandparents, plus their father, to take care of them....it will be such a struggle. I cannot imagine losing a child or having to leave my children behind...even with the joy there must be in being with Jesus. My human mind just can't comprehend. This was a woman who is a bit younger than me, whom I babysat for as a teenager, and who later took part in my wedding. I haven't seen her much in recent years, but I do have sweet memories from our years together in church, etc. She will be sorely missed by many. I am praying that God, our healer and comforter, will surround the entire family with His love in the coming days and weeks..would you join me?

Thank you Mimi. Services were today and I'm sure the extra prayers are going a long way.
