Life is ShortPosted Monday, April 2, 2012, at 9:33 AM
On Wednesday, March 28, five people, including two children, were killed in a tragic auto accident in Carlisle on U.S. 41. These were the step-children, cousins, and friends of one of my co-workers.
On Friday, March 23, two men were in a plane crash near Bloomfield. One of the men broke his back and fractured his skull and has no feeling from the knees down. He is the father of six kids and the wife of one of my friends.
Another friend of mine has a 3-year-old nephew who developed an infection from a cold sore and has been battling for his life for the past few months. Yet another friend may lose her husband soon from a terminal illness. An old friend from another state recently found that her adult son had been murdered.
These tragic events, among others, have been heavy on my heart lately. So much pain and suffering, so much loss. In just a moment, everything changed forever for these families.
Life is so fragile. We never know what is around the corner. While we cannot live in fear, we need to always keep in mind that we are not guaranteed that we will have tomorrow. Every day, every moment that God has given to us is precious. Make the most of those moments. Hug your children. Love your spouse. Reconcile with those who have hurt you. Don't put these things off until another day--another day could be too late.
