I Am At A Loss...

because I cannot get my mind wrapped around this situation. All I can do is request that prayers are offered up to comfort this family...

I received this prayer request e-mail from a good friend of mine. I had heard about this tragedy on the news, but never expected to have such a connection to the story. I cannot even begin to comprehend the pain that the family is feeling.


Hello Dear Friends,

I come to you this evening to ask for a very special prayer request. I called a very dear friend of mine today and she sounded quite upset and couldn't talk. I finally spoke to her this evening and she told me a tragically sad story that is almost unbearable. One of her very best friend’s had not heard from her own daughter, so she went to her daughter’s house yesterday and walked in to find her two grandchildren horrifically murdered and ran out, her husband went in and found her daughter, let’s just say horribly murdered also.

I feel soooo much emotion and pain for this woman I don’t know, but I am a mother. Pleeease, pass this on and ask for a pouring out of the Lord’s spirit to her for comfort and the strength to make through what must be the most difficult thing a mother could go through. She has questioned where God was when this was happening, which I think is normal. But, I pray in time, she will know that as my friend told her, He was there with them.

I don’t know what else to say, though I feel so compelled to say more...just please pray and let’s see what a “huge” prayer chain we can have for this mother and tragedy.

And, if I may add, that the Lord’s justice will prevail.

Thank you for your prayers,



Here is the link to the news story about the situation...

The news is reporting that the boyfriend has been arrested and charged with these horrific crimes.

I'm Going To The Park With Papa Ron!

This is the phrase that my 4-year old has been shouting from the roof tops since earlier this morning. My wonderful father-in-law asked if he could take Kyla to one of her favorite parks where the two of them could spend some fun time together.

As soon as he asked her out, she jumped out of bed and started getting ready. Less than 1/2 hour later, her bag was packed and waiting out front with her car seat & umbrella stroller. Then she spent the rest of the time making a picture of the two of them together, enjoying their day at the park. That was her special version of a Thank You note.

When he walked in the door, there were two very happy little girls. He sat down and held Bryleigh while he explained to her that she was too young to go with them, but that he could not wait until next year...

After some hugs and kisses, Bryleigh and I walked them to the car & waved good-bye.

Now Bryleigh & I can have some special time together. Can you belive that she is now 6 months old! At her doctor's appointment on the 12th, she weighed 16 lbs 8 ozs and was 26 1/4 inches long. My baby girl is growing up...and fast! Does anyone know where the pause button on a baby is located?
