Dearest readers -- After posting on Friday I received a heart-breaking phone call that one of my dearest friends of 30 years had been killed by a drunk driver on Thursday. He had been a dedicated Church of God pastor for about 35 years. He leaves behind two daughters and several grandchildren. Please remember them in your prayers as our Father brings them to your heart. The 28-year-old man who killed my friend was not seriously injured but needs prayer for salvation.

Posting may be hit and miss this week between the funeral and, to be honest, I need a little bit of time to process what has happened. I know Anthony was ready to go be with the Lord, but along with numerous others, I didn't get to say good-bye. When he got up Thursday morning to go to work, he did not know that that was his last morning here on this earth. We truly do not know when it is our time to go.

Here is the link to Pastor Anthony's church in Tennessee:

Word of Life Church of God

Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away. --James 4:14

Seek ye the Lord while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near: --Isaiah 55:6

But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name. --John 20:31

Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. --Acts 4:12
