That is a question that has been running through my head this weekend. Saturday morning Brian Busscher's mom called me to tell me that Brian and Kathy's little girl Grace drowned in Hutchins Lake. Why God? Why does he take such a precious girl from an amazing family? Brian and Kathy are perfect parents and had a perfect family. Only 7 months ago my best friend Jenni lost her baby girl Addison. Now I have to go through pain with my other best friend losing her 18 month child. I sat last night watching the musical fountain wondering how water can be so beautiful and how it can be so evil and take lives away. I talked to Kathy yesterday and we need to pray harder than we have ever prayed before. You always hear these stories but you never imagine they will happen to someone you know. In a split second God took that little girl to heaven with him. I bet she is singing songs and playing with Addison. But why? Why so young? It's not fair. We may never understand. Jackson will never get to play with his older sister. But we sure will tell him stories of how wonderful and perfect she was. I bet the angels in heaven are dancing with her and someday we will get to see her again.
Please pray for the Frieling and Busscher families. This week and weeks to come are going to be so hard. We need to pray that God will wrap his arms around them tighter than he ever has. Pray that he will give them strength and comfort to make it through each day.
