Sometimes We Have to Ask Why~
This past week we received news that a young lady that had been in our youth group years ago died in a terrible car wreck. Her and her husband both. Her family has been through so much heartache in the past 5 years. Seemingly more than the average person could handle.
This whole family from grandparents down to children to grandchildren are all Christians. I can't imagine how people who do not know Jesus handle such loss. Even with Him, it's hard enough. Yet, His mercy and grace somehow sustains us in the midst of it all.
The family wasn't notified until approx 12 hours after the wreck. This young woman and her husband were stationed at a military base several states from here. From what I understand, notification of the family came in a terrible way... and then news was confirmed when the military and police ended up at their front door at about midnight several days ago.
Please be praying for this family as they say goodbye to their daughter on Friday. We are going back to our hometown for the funeral.
