As many of you know, my Pastor lost his oldest son last Thursday. Much to our surprise he spoke Sunday morning only 3 days after the tragic event. Here is what he had to say....

I saw this very tragic news on the tv last week. Another flickr and blogging friend belongs to your church and her husband works there too. So very, very sad for the whole family and especially his wife and baby girl. Jamie

Greg Laurie is one of my favorite people...I have listened to his messages for many years.
I was so sad to hear the news last week via email from Harvest.
The fact that he was given the strength to get up and share last weekend was amazing. The Lord is truly the strength of that families life!
Your blog is great...I am glad I found it!

SOOOO sorry to hear this. Greg Laurie is such a man of God and to know that he & his wife are going through this is just heartbreaking. We always "know" with our heads that we aren't going to be here forever (or our loved ones) but somehow I don't think we really, truly grasp it -- until it happens. And even then, we somehow go on and begin to go back to living again -- until it happens again. I wonder if we just simply never really 'grasp' it here on this side...the fact that this earth is not our home. Our church family had a similar tragedy a couple of months ago. The very day after Mother's Day, our pastor and his 13 year old son were killed when his single-engine plane crashed into the side of a mountain in N.C., immediately plunging thousands upon thousands around the nation into the icy-cold reality that we are NOT citizens of this world and that our lives --- each of ours -- is but a vapor. Live each day with this in mind. Don't, don't don't sqaunder even one mili-second. You NEVER know at what second you will be face to face with Him. That fact is not to be feared, but you must be prepared for it. And, while here, live so as to leave those left behind more legacy than loss...

Oh, we have been praying for them! I can't even imagine! My heart has been broken for them to even have to walk through this but there is always that remaining truth that "GOD IS OUR STRENGTH"!
