LIKE SANDS THROUGH AN HOUR GLASS


"Best start putting first things first."
Cause when your hourglass runs out of sand
You can't flip it over and start again
Take every breathe God gives you for what it's worth.


Yesterday, we got the news that my nephew had died suddenly. We are still not sure what caused his death. It was so shocking because as far as we knew, he was healthy. He was only thirty five years old. He leaves behind him, three little girls and a wife. Please pray for His Dad John, his Mom Dianne and his brother John, as our family tries to deal with this tragedy. Hold your own loved ones closer because you just never know when the sand will run out for anyone. The hourglass ran out of sand for Danny, yesterday.


Danny accepted Jesus Christ as his Savior at an early age. We comfort ourselves with this scripture:
1 Thessalonians 4:14 For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him.

Sleep well and sweet dreams, Danny.
