This Is Going To Be A Rough Day

Early this morning Sadie started barking and their was a wild pounding at the door.

The horses had gotten out and a sweet neighbor lady had hit Liberty.  She was so upset about it.  No wonder.  Not everyday you have a horse dart across the road in the dark.

Libby is no more.  Fortunately Tim works with a man whose nephew has a large farm and he is allowing us to bring her there to bury.

Rachel is heartbroken.  

Today will be a day of comforting broken hearts, as we are also headed to the funeral of a friend.  He died unexpectedly too.

We could use your prayers for us.  This is coming on the back of two really challenging weeks for us.

These are good reminders that life is short, and we can never tell how many days we have been given.

This is Rachel in July 2011 with Libby.  This is about two weeks after we got her.


  1. I'm so sorry. My heart is heavy for you. I will be praying for you.
    Our pastor just spoke on suffering yesterday. How we may not understand why it happens but that there is always a reason and we are not alone in our suffering, God is there to go through it with us.

  2. My heart is breaking for you!! I know Liberty was challenging at times but she was a sweetie too. ((((Rachel))))
    Praying for you as you minister to friends at the funeral. What a way to begin a week!
    Let me know if there is anything I can do to help!!
    Love you.

  3. I'm so, SO sorry to read of your loss.

  4. Saying a prayer for your family, praying for a special comfort and peace to hold and lift you up today...hugs!
