Rachel is sad. Heartbroken. She is doing okay, but if you think of her please continue to pray for her.
Yesterday was surreal is many ways. How do you prepare for having to deal with such a thing? It is all those many little crises that come up over the years, and learning to lean hard into the Lord for His direction and comfort.
We felt it yesterday. The neighbor who hit Libby, was so distraught. They love animals, and she and her husband were so gracious. Then came the issue of what to do with Libby.
Tim works with a gentleman whose nephew just happens to own a couple of farms and one of them adjoins our property. He was instantly helpful and gracious, too. He wouldn't hear of taking any kind of payment, not even for fuel costs. "We're neighbors," was what he told us.
Friends, we felt God's gentle care for us yesterday.
We had a funeral to go to yesterday as well. Sad, hard things, yet God was with us in it all...and it really put things into their proper perspective. The loss of a husband, dad and granddad verses the loss of a well loved pony. Both were unexpected and hard but the real, true loss is the man. Ponies can be replaced, but a man cannot.
Hebrews 4:16 Let us therefore come boldly to the throne
of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help
in time of need.
God is true and faithful!
Today we deal with insurance and all that stuff. I love learning new things, but I could have skipped having to learn this, but I trust God that He knows just what we need.
