Fun Friday: We had a Great Time at Shelby Park!
Today we went to the Shelby Park for free Carousel rides with the Moms Club of Shelby. It was a beautiful day and we had a fanastic time.
My heart was also very heavy as I enjoyed the day with my babies. The Cleveland Park Train Crash has constantly been on my mind.
How is the family that lost their son coping with this tragedy? How is the wife dealing with all of this being eight months pregnant? I am sure her emotions are all over the place.
Last night, I was overcome with emotion hearing the pastor who lost his son speak on the Channel 7 news station (in Spartanburg). This family is being so strong, and I know the supernatural strength that they have is coming through the Holy Spirit's awesome power working in them.
Pastor Dwight (the family's dad) said that losing a son was the most terrible pain you could ever experience, but that the Lord will help you get through it and sends other people to help you as well.
He said that he wants answers but that he does not blame anyone. He was very proud to be the parent of Benjie, the boy that died. Both parents said they had a wonderful six years with him. They said they were confident that knew Benjie knew the Lord.
Wow. So many times we get so caught up in things, especially material matters, and in the end we can't take them with us. We really need to enjoy the day that Jesus has given us, and enjoy the precious miracles that God has richly blessed us with!
