Picture of the day: Rain on my flowers this morning on my front porch

So this week we are having the meeting at the church to see whether or not our church is moving to this new location, and whether or not we are going to build it! The elders have asked Clint to preach on the biblical principles involved as well. So its gonna be a huge day for our church this next Sunday!
There is a family in our church who is really greiving right now. The Webster's have been coming to our church for the last month or so, and their 2 son in law's who were best friends (Mark & David) were hit by a car while cycling on a local road here in Durban. Mark was instantly killed (early 30's with a wife and 2 kids) and David is still severely injured (also early 30's with a wife and 2 or 3 kids) . We met with Mark's wife Tanya (who is just a little older than me) this week. It was amazing to see how strong her faith is while sitting in her now quiet house at the loss of her husband. I didn't even know what to say. But since this tragedy both wives have started attending our church regularly, and I am going to be giving Tanya a ride to Bible study tomorrow, so pray for me that I'll have the words to say, and pray for Tanya and Bernadette (sisters) who are both going through extreme pain. Tanya says she has no idea how she's gonna face every day without Mark.
It's so hard to know what to say to Tanya when I've still got my husband sitting right next to me. It made me thank the Lord once again for such an amazing husband like Clint, and for sustaining both of our lives for this long. I don't know what I'd do without him.
