When We Glimpse Just How Fragile Life Is

    I am a news junkie, I spend hours a day digging into the news. On rare occasions I regret doing so. Following the story of the toddler taken by the alligator was one of those occasions. My heart was devastated. I kept finding myself mentally stepping into that dad’s shoes, and mentally crumpled when I did so. My only reprieve was praying over that family Philippians 4:7 , “And God’s peace, which is so great we cannot understand it, will keep your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.” We can not understand how any peace could ever ever overcome this grief, yet that is His promise.

    Thanks for sharing your heart in this post…

    “May we stop waiting on tomorrow to live for what really matters most.”
    Truth! We aren’t guaranteed tomorrow so let’s celebrate every moment we have with our children today. My heart breaks for the families who lost their babies last week. ????

  5. Lovely post and life is so fragile. I have never had anxiety but lately when I think about if it was my children, I actually get quite anxious and overwhelmed with fear and worry. It is so terribly sad and such a lovely reminder to enjoy every moment that we do have with our children. Thanks for sharing.
