WHEN TRAGEDY STRIKES!

My forty seven year old cousin was murdered in South Africa last night.  He was visiting his parents with his family and enjoying a South African barbecue.  Suddenly four men jumped over a fence and told the family to get inside.  They forced my cousin to stay outside and shot him.  Our family is deeply saddened at this loss and our hearts ache for his children.  It reminded me again that life is short and we have to live each day well.  It made me think of a few important things.

 

1.     Appreciate each other

2.     Tell your family you love them

3.     Seize each moment

4.     Live well

5.     Breathe deeply

6.     Be thankful

7.     Trust God

8.     Don’t fear

9.     Our days are numbered

10.    Heaven is our home

 

And so, as you open your eyes this morning, be thankful.  Breathe deeply and tell the special people in your life that you love them.  Thank God for another day and live it well.

 

I AM AND ALWAYS WILL BE,

RECKLESSLY ABANDONED, RUTHLESSLY COMMITTED AND IN RELENTLESS PURSUIT OF JESUS,
