Prayer for the Turpin family and ours

Well you know it is funny how you can get down in your own self pity and worry. I was hurt this week at work and have been upset all day over some of the ways I have been treated recently by people in my life. You worry about money, kids, making sure everything is just so. Even as christians we take for granted that we will be here tomorrow to do the things we wanna do; to go see your Grandma. We just assume we can go see Mom and Dad this weekend and then it is a maybe depending on how tired we are. God wakes you up real quick....
Henry and I have gone through our normal day today with bumps as usuall and dealing with life as best as we know how. Then you get that phone call that you don't want. Henry's b rother called this evening and let us know only moments before he called Henry's cousin passed away.
Mark Turpin was as sweet as could be. He had however always had health problems and was a worry to many in his family out of concern. Mark was single but loved many. He was in his very early 30's .
This death comes to a family that has already had to lay to rest another family memeber this year. Henry and Marks uncle Larry passed away earlier this year. When we got the call Henry stood stunned at the news. Being the age he is and even Larry's you know that God is in control.
Love all those around you as much as you have in you to give. Love God and honor Him in all you do. If you don't know the Lord I pray you will get your life in order with Him before it is too late. Because as things like this shows us you are never too young for it to be too late.
Please keep his mom dad brothers and neice and nephew in your prayers as well as our extended family... God bless you all

Praying for you and your family Lisa!
And thanks for the reminder that we need to live in the only moment that we know we have, the one we are living in right now!
