I received the news today as did most of you that two lives were tragically taken in the foyer of New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The two people killed in this senseless act of barbarism were two sisters 18 and 16 years of age.
When I found out their age I felt sick. This year has been a rough year for me. A five year old kid from our kids church died suddenly from the flu, almost a year ago. I don’t think I will ever be the same again. I have never experienced anything like that. The hospital, the house, the funeral. It all hurts in ways words don’t describe. I sometimes feel stupid because it wasn’t my son who died. I can’t describe it but it still hurts.
It is with a heavy heart I ask you to pray for the family of these two girls whose lives where brought to and end far to early. Pray for the family, the friends and the church. Then give your kids a big kiss goodnight, I know I am going to because our lives are but a vapor.
Yet you do not know what your life will be like tomorrow. You are just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.
