Psalm 31:14-15 “But I trust in  you, O Lord; I say, ‘You are my God.’ My times are in your hands…”*


Last weekend we saw a  crash, two cars ahead of us. We watched it happen, felt bad for the people and my husband got out and helped. Thankfully, there seemed to be no serious injuries.

I sat stunned. But it was two cars removed. We were fine.

In the past couple months, though not in our families, there have been tragedies. A wife died leaving four children without mom, a loving wife and daughter were brutally murdered, a daughter was lost too young through illness and a son/brother died unexpectedly leaving two little girls…

All two cars removed from us. And like last weekend, I sit dumbfounded.

There are no answers for losses such as these. There is only God. Our times are in his hands.
