The ride there:

On ride, there at about an hour and a half into the trip, we saw a sign saying the road was closed due to a traffic jam and to take a detour…real men DON’T detour! So 3 hours later we have traveled 6 miles! We asked a trucker (cb’s work great in traffic jams) what was going on and he told us a semi-truck crossed the median and ran over a car, killing 3 people!
This was terrible to say the least. I got to thinking that 3 people were not coming home for dinner tonight! Their families have instantly lost them. How fast can a life turn around? One minute your loved ones are on their way home and the next your family is ripped apart! Have you ever read 1 Thessalonians 5:17? It simply states: pray continually;! I have, and I wondered: what was I to pray? Well I bet the family of three travelers could give us a million things to pray for continually. We don’t know what tomorrow will bring so safety and wisdom is a good start.

anyway, may God be with thier familys and may they be with God! Amen.
