I just found out that a friend lost her husband last night.  It was very, very unexpected.  He had no conditions. He had no warning signs.  They were watching the Iowa returns and she went to bed, he said he was going to stay up a while.  She got up later to check on the kids and the light was still on and she found him dead.

I am in disbelief.

I just cannot imagine... my heart is grieving for her.  I don't understand how you do that.  I mean I can say the right words about God and faith and peace and all that and I believe it ALL.  I can quote verses for others, but I just think unless you are in a place like that you just can't know.

She has a young 3 year old and 6 month old twins. 

Isaiah 55:8-9

8 “For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,”
declares the LORD.

9 “As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.

Love your loved one.  Don't let moments go by.  We shouldn't need reminders like this....
