April 27th changed the life of my friends, but April 28th changed mine. We had stayed up all night - friends calling, "Have you heard anything?" "Duane is there with a chainsaw, only men with chainsaws can come through" "Injured people everywhere" A text... someone is dead. And that became our reality. Someone we loved was gone.
Today I read, Do not boast in tomorrow. Proverbs 27. Had Mr. L ever boasted? I think not, but he knew His Savior and so does his family. He had voiced a hope that there would be a tomorrow. That he would see his youngest grow up, but no he had known that the Lord holds time in His hands.
So with one hour of sleep, I told my children, "Mr. L. had died in the storm, several of the children were in the hospital with serious injuries, our friends' homes were gone, and life will be forever different."
Now that will rock your boat!!
