Makes me sad

This morning Scott and I learned of some friends who are going through a divorce.

Even though your marriage is fine - and we are happy (at least I am... HA!), it is very scary when this happens to a family whom you know and love. I think that it should scare me - scare anyone - that this is such a sad reality. I called Scott and talked to him. I felt better talking to him. He said I sounded more shocked about this than my car... (Oh... I have to blog about that later...)

All day long I have thought of them, prayed for them, and prayed for us. Not just for me and Scott, but all us young marrieds with young children whom love the Lord. Please pray for all of "us" and for them; aren't we glad that God still listens to "generic" prayer requests?

I will be praying for this couple.

One of the hardest things for us during our 10 1/2 years of marriage has been watching the end come for couples we know. It happens so often, even to those you would never guess. We were undergrads at Samford, and so many of those friends have married, had kids, and parted ways. We have had our challenges, but we are thankful daily for the blessing of a beautiful married life. We wish the same for everyone else, too.

I agree, hearing something like this makes you take a step back. We've had a few similar situations, one in particular to a couple we were fairly close to. It was heartwrenching... Still to this day(it happened 5 years ago when their children were small) I think about them...

On another note, I'm sorry about your car. Why is it not a law in AL for drivers to have car insurance? You handled it better than I would have... :-)
