Our long time running buddy and her sweet family lost their 21 year old daughter yesterday to a heart attack. THIS STINKS! Such a wonderful precious family----and Steph---well there's no one else in the world quite like Steph. She loves her girls---is a wonderful Mother---wrapped up in those sweet things. WHY DID THIS HAPPEN?
I spent the evening struggling with why God didn't take me or someone like me---lived life---done it---done LOTs. WHY would he take one that had just begun her adult journey? Why would it happen to this sweet family? They love the Lord--faithfully serve Him. It's NOT fair!--There is NO explanation.
I am adding this to my list of questions I plan to ask God--and it goes WAY up at the top. Don't tell me to read Job---done that more times than I can say. That didn't seem fair either. I KNOW He created the world---His way is the best way----Just need some clairification.
SO PLEASE pray for my sweet friend Steph and her family. At this point--I think pray for strength to get through the next few days and courage to face tomorrow. There will be no peace for a while and they will not be comforted - though we all want to try. So I am praying they can just meet the task at hand---which is HUGE. I will pray for them one step at a time---and this is the first step. Please pray with me.
