A Bittersweet Week

Saturday, August 07, 2010

I live in the lil town of St James, Missouri

. The home of the band that was involved in the horrible bus accident this week in St Louis.
I work in Sullivan, the home of the young man who was driving the pick-up truck invovled as well.
There is nothing but sadness all around....

Daniel Schatz, the 19yo man killed, family said that he was put there for a reason~ so that more children on the bus didn't lose their lives. What a selfless statement from them! We have lost a beautiful little girl, Jessica Brinker, here in St James as well. Being a town of 3000 people, we know about everyone, my husband worked with her dad.

We never know what God has in store for us. Why He chooses to take young people, other than their time on earth is finished. We should be thankful for every moment we have with the children that God has loaned to us! I, as a parent, am guilty of letting my children stress me out. But now that 1 of my sons has moved away, I realize how important ALL the moments with your children are, stressful or not.

May God hold the families of all involves in His loving arms!

    This was such a sad event, but it's so good to know that God is always in control and that He has a purpose in everything He does...even when we can't see it at all.

    Yes children are a god send. I know that even if the fathers of my 2 children had stayed away like they did that I appreciate the time spent with them and the joy of having them. God blesses us when he gives us children or even if people do wrong its still something that people as a whole need to be appreciated for who they are. Sorry about the tradedy.
