life and death

while we are very excited about the arrival of andrew michael...my mom called me yesterday and had some bad news.

A friend of ours from college died in his sleep on Thursday night. Some of you knew Josh Palmer. I am sorry if this is how you are finding out but I wanted to let people know to keep his family in your prayers. Josh was recently married to Barb...about two years ago and was a teacher. I don't know any more details, my dad just got an email and that's all they told him also. My heart breaks for Barb, I cannot imagine what she is going through right now. So please pray for Barb, and Jon (Josh's brother) and his parents. They are going through a tough time.

Please also keep Greg's cousin Lauren in your prayers. She just found a tumor in her spinal colum I think. They do not know whether it is cancerous or not but the doctors think they'll be able to get it all out. So keep her on your prayer list as well.

Life is so short, we really don't know what is going to happen. God could be ready for any of us at any time. Take the time to tell your family and friends that you love them. Don't leave them angry, you never know when it will be your last chance to see them. Death creeps up when you least expect it. We've been seeing the sting of death all around us lately. God is in control, and that's the only thing that can bring comfort. So remember that. God is in control.
