In the Valley of the Shadow….

Hi guys.

Emergiblog will be on hiatus for a few days – my brother-in-law was killed in a head-on accident tonight and my sister will be undergoing surgery. She was the passenger in the car and her ankles were shattered. They live three hours away and I’ll be with my family for the next few days.

I guess a car crossed the center divider at freeway speed.

Life is so fragile. At 1600 today we were all laughing and having fun at my daughter’s bridal shower. Three hours later, this happened.

My brother-in-law was the manager of a trauma unit.

Any and all prayers you can send up for my sister and her kids would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

    Kim –

    I’m so very sorry to hear about your brother-in-law’s death. Sounds like he was someone we all would have liked. I’m praying your sister will recover from her injuries; and that Jesus will wrap his arms around your family.
