Snowy Sunday

Sunday, March 02, 2014

After 7am and still dark outside.. I went out to get the newspaper and found two more inches of snow on the ground since last evening. Fan-tastic!! It is icy underneath it all, so that will make skating down the road a wonderful thing to look forward to later. I read that people are begging for rain in some parts of the country. If you want it, you might want to get a giant fan and blow those dark clouds to your part of the world!! We have all of the moisture around...

I spoke with a friend last night,, her hubby's eldest son Tim, has a long term live-in girlfriend and HER son just committed suicide. Each layer of her story made it worse,,too horrible to fathom ...

The son put a shotgun in his mouth and blew his entire head off.. Tim found the body at the kitchen table with the gun still between his legs. Worse: Tim had all of his guns double locked in a gun safe. HE also had double trigger locks on each gun. To top it all off, he had no ammo in the house.None. They would go target practicing together frequently, to teach gun safety and hunting skills. I think the son palmed some shells during that time, ..
He must have spent most of the time when parents went to work, breaking into the safe and tearing all of the locks off everything..

Even worse: Son just had his 13th birthday in January... he left no note, had been playing games, going to the movies, various activities with friends and family right up to day he died. He was not bullied at school, no health problems, no abuse,,nothing..

They just bought this new home 1 1/2 years ago, but HASMAT has to clean the home because of the brain tissue and blood throughout the open-concept home,, airborne too.. required.. to the cost of $38,000!! That is not a typo..
This is such a tragedy all around.. no known reason, no way to prevent it. and a woman's only child gone...
Never take anything or person for granted.

If you have a spare minute could you drop a line to God in favor of this family and child? Thank you...

* Yeah, it seems as though the Southwest has been getting no precipitation while the Northeast has been getting whacked these past few months.

"This is such a tragedy all around.. no known reason, no way to prevent it. and a woman's only child gone... "
* Deepest condolences.

    This is a terrible thing to have happened! I am sad reading this. Sad for everyone involved! Can't think of words to say. It's just so emotionally troubling to think of these precious kids ... and what they must be feeling to carry out these actions.
Definitely a prayer for this family today. So very, very sorry.

    This so mind boggleingly sad. Poor mother. Poor guy not even the kids dad. That's just so horrible. Such a young child too. Can't even blame him for the selfishness. Children are selfish by nature. I do pray for this couple.

Lord Jesus, please be ever present with Tim's family and friends. Lord, please comfort them and help them through this horrific tragedy. please help them not to blame themselves, but to look to you for strength and courage and hope in their future, however, that may be without Tim. The loss of a child goes deeper than any, please be there and guide them through...

    YEP ... I just finished 90 minutes of blowing snow in Iowa so that I could get out and go to church.
