Be grateful for your family

I’ve been following the tragic story of Carlos and Jennifer Salazar, whose five young children died in an automobile accident last week.  You can read about it here and here.

As a father, I can’t even imagine…

It reminded me of the testimony of Robert Rogers, who lost his wife and children when their vehicle was caught in a flash flood.  If you haven’t been very faithful in praying for your family, and perhaps have been taking them for granted and not really appreciating the gift that they are to you, then I highly recommend taking the time to listen to his story.

…You know neither the day nor the hour. Watch carefully, for everything passes quickly…
