This past weekend some of my sister Rebecca's school mates were involved in a fatal car accident. Drunk driving is suspected, which only adds to the tragedy, but either way, at least one of the members of the car was killed. Please pray for the two remaining kids who were injured and also for the families and friends that have been hit with grief. As I was driving home from work today, I was thinking about how fragile life is. I haven't ever been truly affected by death, but I know I will be. And that thought sometimes takes my breath away. I can't imagine the loss I would feel. Sometimes it makes me want to close up to the world, and minimize the oncoming pain that I'll feel. I'll never do it, I would hurt myself more to never experience the joy of attachments. However, as you go about life, don't forget that its not something thats promised for tomorrow, and that you only have today. Life life full, and treasure people, not things. And pray for those you may know, or don't know that you hear that have lost people important to them.
