Within inches of total tragedy...

We have no idea how much time we have. Or how much time our loved ones have.

Yesterday a friend of mine was in a bad bike wreck. She could have died. She doesn't call Jesus her Lord, but that doesn't mean He didn't save her life. She is still in intensive care today and her husband just called tonight to tell me about her condition.

I know my God. I may not understand all His plans or the circumstances He allows in our lives but I KNOW He loves me and those He created, whether they love Him or not. Only He knows the path each of us are on. Only He knows the journey each of us will take to end up in His arms.

I am praying for my precious friend and her beloved husband who has been a dear friend of ours for 20 years. We were delighted when they found each other and we are consistently praying that our lives and our love for them will be a reflection of God's great love for them.

Please pray for your loved ones. No one knows how much time there is. There is no time to rush, for God is the Father of time, but we must follow His lead, we need to obey when He says PRAY. We need to speak up when He asks us to. We who know Christ have nothing to lose. Those who have yet to know Him, they have everything to lose.

Don't be pushy, don't be judgemental, don't stress, just press your head deep into the chest of your Savior and listen to His heart beat for all those you love. And even the ones you don't. He will know when the time is right. He will know what is next. He will give you the words. Listen. Hear the heart of God. It beats for us all.

On the "eating" note as far as my vacation goes, I am doing better, though the samples at the New Belgium Brewery tour today did nothing to improve my waistline! :) I did eat zucchini with my dinner tonight, another step toward adult style eating! And yes. I did like it. Weird. ;)

  1. In life there are sometimes brief pauses where we stop and take a breath. Hope this incident doesn't cause further unsettling on the bicycle issue... but, you are determined in your challenge. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your friend.
