This past week, I have found myself at random times in the day just breaking down in tears. Tragedies in life don't make sense. We don't understand it nor can we even try to. What I am trying to understand and appreciate more is the sanctity of a human life. Every single day is a gift from God. We are not guaranteed 20, 30, 40 years on this Earth. I think so often we get in a hurry to plan for the future, to think to ourselves, "There's always tomorrow" but tomorrow is not certain.
Pain is a part of life. Feeling the pain is a part of grieving. So, while we can't take Julee's pain away, we can show her how much she is loved. The online community has done that so beautifully already. I have been blown away by the sheer volume of people who were touched by both Matt & Julee. If you are friends with Julee or even if you have never met. Even, if you are just now hearing of this tragedy for the first time while reading this, I ask for you to pray for Julee. While we as mere humans, don't have the cure for pain, God can give Julee a peace that transcends understanding. I do hope you find peace, Julee. I hope that through family, friends and a firm faith in God, you find a cure for this pain you are going through. I pray that it hurts a little less each and every day.
