Pray For The Children

Looking Up At Heaven........ I saw on the news today that the body of missing 7-year old, Somer, from Florida was found. How tragic. I cannot imagine what her family is going through. My heart breaks for them. Unfortunately, this happens much too frequently these days.

I pray often for the safety of our own girls, Zoey and Mackenzie. You try to teach your kids and grandkids about safety, but somethings just happen anyway. Sometimes when I lie in bed at night, praying for our "Grands", I wonder how many little ones are out there...right at that very moment...being abused, hurt, raped or murdered? The numbers are unfathomable I'm certain. When I think about those littlest of victims and pray for them, I am praying that God will be with them to give them whatever comfort and strength they need.

I know that this post doesn't have anything to do with our RV lifestyle, but it is on my mind today and weighs heavy on my heart.

Go out and hug your kids and your own "Grands" and tell them you love them. Or phone them. Do it...right now.

I, too, was saddened by the news out of Florida.

Yesterday I took my Mom (age 84) with me to my daughters down in MD (about a two hour drive) to visit with her and my grandaughters. (age 3 and 4 months) I can not imagine what any of us would do if anyone hurt any of our grands. (We have 13 of them from 4 months to 22yrs old) There must be a special hell for such people.

You are right, Margie. Too many bad things happen to our children. An optimist will say that it's only a very small percentage who get injured or killed, and that's true. But even one is way too many. Thanks for bringing this to our wandering attention spans! And blogs don't have to be about RV adventures! You're doing fine.
