Thank You for Being A Blessing in My Life

The other day someone asked me “How many boxes of Kleenex have you gone through?” It kind of made me chuckle but than I realized the reality of the statement. The last month has not been the easiest. My heart ached when I heard the news of Ben Larson. I ached for the people of WTS knowing how that community is and always will be connected. I ached for Ben’s wife Renee who I had worked at Bible camp with in ND and who I consider a friend. I am glad that Ben’s body was able to be returned to the states; to Renee and the rest of Ben’s family. I hope this helps bring some closure for them.

In the midst of this tragedy, I have found myself realizing how blessed I am to have so many wonderful friends in my life. It also has made me realize how I dont often tell them enough. So to borrow from one of my friends, if I havent told you lately and if you have been in my life in some way or another, you are important to me and I am super blessed to have you in my life. Thank you for being a blessing in my life!!!!!!!!

May we continue to pray for Ben’s family and all the people of Haiti.

  1. Lots of connections to Ben, esp through camp and sem. I know a number of people who were connected to him through a camp in the LaCrosse area, so although I didn't know him, I'm grieving form my friends' loss. But also very much realizing that the whole country of Haiti is living under that cloud of grief. May God grant all who have been left with many good memories to carry then through their grief.

  2. I came to read your FF and as usual looked at the previous post. In an odd coincidence, one of my daughter's best and oldest friends is also a friend of Ben Larson from the La Crosse-area camp mentioned in the preceding comment. Today, news of two aid workers killed in a 'copter crash in Haiti. Greater love hath no man, indeed.
