Life is short- What will you do with it?

Current mood: sad Category: Life

Lastnight while out with my family my husband got a phone call. He wasn't exactly sure what the message was since it was jumbled up. So when we left he returned the call, really not thinking too much about it.As he talked I knew there was something wrong. He hung the phone up and I said, "whats wrong"? Brian responded and said about the worst you can think of, my respond was no it can't be I see you and my children......
He preceeded to tell me that Frank and Garth, who are the two men that own his company had been in a plane crash. Both were believed to be dead. We made a stop by his moms, I made a phone call to find out it was TRUE! My heart is still in my ankles. I can't imagine what these families are going through. The plane caught on fire when it hit so my heart is broken for those men. There were 5 in the plane and all of them died.
As a christian it maked me realize how precious this life is, even when we believe it to be very difficult. God never promised us it would be easy, He only promised if we abide in Him He would abide in us. And one of those promises is that he will carry us through everything that we go through if we allow him to. Lastnight and today I have prayed alot for the families, co-workers and friends of these men. I want to take this time to encourage everyone reading this to do the same.
Above all I would like to ask, if you were to slip into eternity, where would you spend it? Would you pass through the pearly gates,and walk on the streets of gold and meet my heavenly father, or would you slip in to the pit of Hell. Please don't wait, tomorrow may never come.
God as you see my heart is broken for these families so is it broken for those who don't know you. My family members, my friends and anyone else that reads this, Lord please touch them today. Send your holy spirit to nudge thier hearts to turn to you. Our only hope and security is in you my Jesus. In your name I pray... Amen

One of my many blessings!

Ok, so for those of you who don't know who this baby is- This is Natalia' Anna DiMase. (a.k.a. Baby Lola)
I had the privilage of meeting her mommy, Martha about a year and a half ago. When I decided to venture into the world and take on a part time job. Needless to say, the job was not what I wanted but what I got out of it was a beautiful friendship. Martha and I hung in there together at work and even after I was done we stayed in contact. When she found out that she was pregnant I was so excited. You see they are military. They live close and thier families are very far away......
Little did I know at the time what God had in store for us all. God not only blessed Martha and Anthony with Natalia but He blessed us as well. Anthony was gone 4 months out of Marthas pregnancy and now, a year later he is gone again. But in aunt Kerris words, "I got this"....
I started keeping Natalia when she was 3 weeks old, and I guess I am a little partial but she is the cutest, right!!!! About a month ago when Natalia and Martha were so very sick, I know I realized why they had been brought into my life. I am forever grateful.
Martha and Natalia go to church with us, they eat with us, they are just a part of us!
Martha even cooked for us!!!!
So to Lola and Baby Lola, I love ya, Cant imagine my life without you two. I love you, my kids love ya, yeah uncle Brian loves you and our family loves you.... You are a part of us now!!!!!
