you give and take away

"No one knows about that day or hour, not even the angels in heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father."  -Matt. 24:36 NIV

life is great.  getting ready for parties, wrapping gifts, decorating, singing christmas songs, addressing christmas cards, etc.  it seems that when life is great, we tend to forget that for others, life is falling apart.

tuesday night, i had done my friend karen's hair, and afterwards, we went out to eat dinner together.  we had a great time.  when i got home that night, my mom told me that karen's son-in-law, scott, had been in an accident, and was airlifted to the closest hospital.  i thought that he had been in a wreck, and that like many other vehicle accident victims, would have a long road ahead, but would be alright.  but, the truth was, he had been cutting fire-wood, and a tree had fallen on him.  he had major head injuries.  yesterday morning, i called mom for the update, and she said that scott was brain-dead, and they had removed life-support, and the doctors said that it was just a matter of time.  he died at 2:30 yesterday afternoon.

scott was 38.  his wife jennifer and he had 2 children, ages 2 and 8 months.  please keep them in your prayers!  you can visit their family blog at
