This post is to specifically ask for prayer. I have a friend who lost her sister in a tragic car accident two days ago. Her two children survived and she did not. I can't fathom the pain their family is going through. Her name was Mandy and she was a young mommy of two precious little kids. She was pulling out from the kids' school and a was hit by an oncoming truck. Her children woke up yesterday without their mommy. I know most of you who read this blog are indeed "mommies" and I am sure you are thinking the same as I am...I would NEVER want my babies to wake up without me.
This reminds us that everything here on Earth is so temporary..even our lives..all the STUFF we have, our families, friends, the most important and valued object you own....is all TEMPORARY! I'm sure it doesn't ease the pain at all when you encounter a tragedy of such, but reality nonetheless. God paints the picture clear for us. Earth is not our final resting place.
So if you woke up today and want to be "stressed out" with all the HOLIDAY HYPE..don't be. Go to your children and husbands, your loved ones, and hug them. Tell them you love them and savor the moments you have each day with your family because we are not guaranteed tomorrow!
Please say a prayer for these children who are left without their mommy (one week before Christmas). I don't have the names of the children but their mommy's name was Mandy Sissin (not sure if I spelled her name correctly) but God knows this family and He planned this according to HIS purpose. My heart hurts for this family.
Thanks blogger friends for your prayers.
