Matt's Friend Aimee

We found out last night that one of Matt's college friends was killed in a car accident. It's really hit me as I think about how sudden it was and how no one was expecting it. It's making me think about how fragile life is. And how I want to make a difference in whatever time I have. Like Aimee did.
Read this article about her death--and life.

This video talks about how prayers were not answered for her healing. We will never understand why not, but knowing Aimee, I know she's with Jesus. And she's much happier there than here.

And this video shows the car and tells more about her. I cannot imagine how her students and friends and family must be feeling. Please be in prayer for them.

On her Facebook page, this is what's written in her profile box: One thing I ask of the Lord, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.

When we were in Thailand, her class and mine were penpals. I looked forward to her letters as much as my kids did to the letters from her kids. She was so genuine, and her love for Christ and trust in Him radiated in everything she wrote, even when sharing things she was struggling with.

I feel confident that she didn't know when getting ready that morning, she would be in the arms of her Savior within hours. This is so stunning yet peaceful at the same time.

Join us in praying for her family and friends in the sadness and grief of missing her as well as the joy and celebration that she's with her Beloved Creator.
