I'm sitting here completely devastated and heartbroken.
One of my friends from high school was married 10 days ago and on his honeymoon
due back tomorrow.
Well, there was an accident today.
He's now in intensive care and his beautiful wife didn't make it.
She went home to be with the Lord.

My family's been sitting here for hours trying to make sense of this tragedy.
My heart aches, my stomach is turning and my head is pounding.
How does this happen?

Our friend was on my dad's baseball team all 4 yrs of high school and has since
coached with him for the last few years.
The beautiful couple was closer with my parents than they were with me,
and seeing my dad burst into tears as he broke the news to his baseball players was
absolutely painful.
This couple was so special to them.
My parents were ecstatic after coming home from their wedding,
just 10 days ago.
They were so in love.

I've been in constant prayer tonight and begging for answers.
Nobody deserves this.
Especially not him.
I'm so heartbroken.
He is supposed to be with his bride 10 days after their wedding.
Not sitting in a hospital bed, worlds apart.
Mr and I have been talking all night, putting ourselves in the situation
and it makes us absolutely sick.
There's no words.
Please, please lift up our friend in prayer.
He needs it and through God's power he can feel peace in this tragedy.
He's alone in a foreign country with out his new bride.
The power of prayer has to reach him.

I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
John 16:33

  10. My heart goes out to your family as well as him and his. Sometimes I think God let's nature take its course and we learn from it. 5 years ago I lost my brother, and father of 4 in a car accident. His wife was in the ICU and pulled through, but we lost Ryan. 8 years before that, we lost my sister, a mother of 4 to cancer. I don't know why things happen, but I know that I have learned a lot and the Lord has always been with me to comfort me.

  12. Wow, I just cannot even imagine. Praying for him, for their families, and for y'all!
