Life is Precious

I was looking at a billboard on my way home and see there is a nation day of remembrance on September 25th by the Parents of Murdered Children. My heart breaks as I think of this incredible loss. I can barely understand what parents, grandparents, family, and friends go through and continue to go through. We know that children hold a special place in God’s heart.  Listen to Jesus’ words, “Let the little children come to me,”. It also says in Psalm 139 For you (God) created my inmost being; you (God) knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you (God) because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your (God’s) works are wonderful, I know that full well.
As I, as we pray for these families with lost children I can not help but remember families with fallen soldiers. I remember them  as I pray often. I particularly remember dads as they can be forgotten or suppress the pain of loss. I also remember the families affected by abortion which also takes a life of a child.

In each case there is great pain that does not go away. Only the Lord can comfort, and this is why I ask you to join me in praying for these families. I pray that they remember that to God every life has tremendous value. We are talking about loss of life. May you know God’s love, His strength, His refuge.  May you be carried through this difficult time and know that you are cared for deeply. I am so sorry for what you are going through but I promise I will continue to pray for you.

See you at the track and have a great day racin’ in the SONshine
