In your prayers...

We heard last night that one of the students at our local Lutheran High was killed in a jetski accident yesterday: Holly Reeb. Another student was seriously injured: Nick Dawdy. If those who read this would add them to their prayers, it would be appreciated. Holly was friendly, cheerful, beautiful and kind. She was setter on the girl's volleyball team and on the school dance team. It's going to be a difficult opening of school at Metro this week. May the comfort of Christ's resurrection bring peace and healing to the hearts of all - especially Holly's family.

I kept thinking: Life is so fragile, so precious. "In the midst of life, death has surrounded" and yet "even at the grave we make our song: Alleluia! Alleluia! Alleluia!"

"Give rest, O Christ, to your servant with your saints, where sorrow and pain are no more, neither sighing, but life everlasting!"
