Heavy heart...


My DH and I had an argument last night. No, I don’t generally air dirty laundry here in blogland but some how it seems to be weighing on my heart today. No, the argument isn’t…it is long resolved and was really not a major issue, but in light of the pain and anguish another family we know is facing I feel it was wasted energy. You see, a sweet family that we know is waking up this morning to face the day after learning, yesterday, that their beloved husband and father was murdered. A wife and 3 children are trying to figure out how to cope after being assaulted with the news that the man they loved lost his life at the hands someone he stopped and tried to help. There is hope, though, because this man loved God and worked to share his faith as a Chaplin and youth pastor. I don’t even pretend to know what they are feeling or how they will even get through today. Please pray for this family and hold yours a bit tighter because you can.

  1. This is sad. I know how you feel. It seems whenever you get into an argument, something opens your eyes to how silly that fight was. Prayers for that family.

  2. I'm so sorry. We have had two instances of something like this close to us (our church administrator and a teacher) who were both murdered by former boyfriends. You just can't get your mind around it.

  3. I saw this story today in our local news. Such a sad and horrible tragedy. And you are right. When something like this happens, doesn't it seem to make you count your own blessings and hold your own dear ones a little tighter? I'm keeping that sweet family in my thoughts.

  5. This really breaks my heart. Such useless, worthless violence in this world today. It saddens me so much, especially at a time when we should be celebrating life because of the life God gave us when he gave us Christ. Prayers for your family and for their family.
