Wind squall, snow squall, snownado, call it what you will, but it couldn't have happened at a worse time.
Can you see the girls waiting for the bus at the end of our lane? The photo was taken when I could just make them out. There were moments were I could not see them at all. It was completely white! A snow squall with no visibility appeared out of nowhere last week Thursday morning (it didn't show up on any of the weather radars) and swept across the province causing car pile ups on the big highways here and throughout the province. One of those stretches of highway is one that many many of us who live in this area use almost daily (some do use it daily -- including school buses). Two people died. One was only 18 and the other was a family friend. She was only 22 years old; a newlywed since June. She started babysitting for our kiddos when she was a wee thing at 11 years old. By the time she was off to university, Bub was almost taller than her. Our hearts are breaking for her husband, her family, and all of us who knew her well. She was a bright light in this world. Her love for God shone through in all she did. We have the confidence in knowing we will meet her again in heaven and that makes it a wee bit easier. After the beautiful, funeral yesterday, I posted this on my faceb**k:
questions will never be answered on this side of heaven. “For my
thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares
the Lord. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways
higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts". Isaiah 55:8-9
NIV -- Thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers dear families.
Life goes on, but it will never be the same.
