Last week I related a tragic accident that occurred when a father backed over his 3 year old child at a local tree farm. That post can be read here: Our Children
At this morning’s prayer breakfast, we discussed this situation and were given a personal reflection by one of our church’s elders. Glenn, our elder, knew Tony only from time spent next to him on an exercise bike at a local fitness center. And until last week he hadn’t seen or spoken to him for over two years.
Glenn reports that, to the best of his knowledge, Tony and his wife Katie (sp ?) are not professing Christians But Tony made a call to Glenn last week asking if he could stop by his house and talk with his wife and him.
Glenn met with them, and it was not an easy visit. As you can imagine, there is still a lot of raw emotion and grief over the loss of this child. But Glenn did talk with them and they invited him to pray for their family. The one thing that Glenn said is helping to keep things together is that they also have a four year old son.
As in my first post, I would ask that you please continue to be in prayer for this family. I will keep you updated as to the workings of God in these 3 lives.
God bless you and yours,
