  1. Kathy, we have to take a moment out of our little world and remember the lost and, yes, the dying. Thanks for the reminder. We live in the shadow of death….not in the death…. Yours in Him, ~Chris~

  2. Oh my, in my 20s I made such poor choices. Thankfully, the Lord protected me. As I look back now, I wonder what in the world I was thinking. There was no peace in all of that. So grateful I finally walked away.

    Kathy, what a wonderful story. If only the kids
    would listen. Most of us have been in their shoes and have done what they are about to do. Thank you for praying for that young boy that night!!

      Yes Tammy, the college students are in such a vulnerable place with being thrust into independence and don’t know how vulnerable they are. Thank you for stopping in and for your encouragement.

    Wonderful testimony and reminder that a little fun, done wrongly, can cause us our lives. Going to share this on FB because I have many young friends who could definitely benefit from it, and many parents and grandparents who could and should be praying for them, with us

      Thank you Gladys. I can’t stop thinking about the river stealing life. And I take it as a call to pray. I so appreciate you joining me in pleading with God to bring life and light into the darkness of this land.

      Another thing I meant to mention was that I feel the reason God saved your life in that car accident was because he knew he could use you to reach many others………and he just was not finished with you yet. I’m so thankful he did!

    I love your heart sweet friend. Thank you for speaking to that boy, it could have been my boy…I would want that…another to love enough to give a warning. Joining you in your prayer for our young people.

    I appreciate your insight to what dangers lurk to claim the life flow from our young people too intent with hollow knowledge of the danger so close at hand that their innocence clouds a more mature judgment. Thanks for sharing your own experiences to help draw attention to how easy our youth are lured into fatal danger!

      Thank you for your encouragement Nancy. The things of youth are so fleeting. I just don’t want more lives to flee …
