Savor each day.

I was there, when you went to be with the Lord.
I wonder what it was like.
Did you run up to Him and fall at His feet?
Did you gasp, taking in all that was around you?
Did you toss your head back and laugh joyously?
I wonder.
I was there.
I saw them working on you.
The kids and I prayed.
We watched Lifeflight come, and then land right in front of us.
They stayed for a bit, and then they left.
Without you.
Were you already in His presence?
I wonder.
We prayed for your wife and your family.
For some reason it felt wrong that I knew before she did.
But, I knew that someone was on their way to her.
Lord, be with her right now.
Not really being able to go into all the details;
a dear man to many suddenly, tragically died this morning -
Please pray for this family.
Blessings ~

Oh Kristy. I am so sorry.

To be there to witness someone's last moments on earth will change you forever. What a gift that you were there to pray for the family. That mattered.

You helped.

I am so sorry......... I will lift them up in prayer.... the one comfort is in knowing that he is now in the arms of Jesus...
May his family feel their Lord's peace and healing as He holds them in His loving arms.

It is so sobering to witness this, isn't it? I am praying for this family right now. How life changing for them, forever. I think about you all the time and we need to do some catchin up.
