Hard Landing

Yikes. Sometimes it doesn't pay to come home from vacation. While I was gone, three of our elderly members died and there was a major tragedy in the Presbyterian church in the next town over. Please be in prayer for that congregation. They lost three teenagers and the wife of their youth director in a terrible road accident coming back from their summer mission trip. As a veteran of many such trips, I always said, tongue in cheek, that it was a miracle that we all got home alive. Or something.

On a lighter note, both cats survived our absence, though Balrog the kitten got an eye infection from his either his mother or sibling to whose home he returned for the ten days of our trip.

Regarding the major tragedy, the young woman's parents, I believe, are members of my congregation. We heard about it the Sunday after it happened. Awful thing. Many prayers going up for those families.

Glad you're home safe and I hope you had a really good time.

Wow. It has been a month of tragedies, just one thing after another.

I just found out that a friend who was at our wedding in December is the former youth director in that congregation and knows everyone there.

Lord, have mercy.
