Sadness

As I sit here I feel numb and helpless. We just received a message telling us that LV's brother was killed in a work related accident. He has left behind his loving wife, Emma, and their eight children. As well as those six little motherless children that they had moved in to help care for.

We are preparing to go to the family. If you care to, prayers for Emma and their family would be appreciated.

  24. Your family - extended and loving - will be in my prayers during this overwhelming loss. Thank God we have the Comforter who understands when words fail: Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered.
    (Romans 8:26 KJV)

  46. I am so sorry. I will be praying - praying for God's comfort to reign down and hold this dear wife, your family, and all those children in the palm of His hands. That He might rock them to sleep at night.

    You are loved.
