Horrible, Horrible Day!

 Just remember this. Life can change in the blink of an eye!

  I went to the drugstore and on to the grocery store this morning so I could get my errands done, and get back here to sew.

 As I got out of my car in the grocery store parking lot, I heard a big BAM! A truck had hit a car right on the passenger's side on the 4 lane highway. If I had been even one minute later, that collison would have also hit me. I was breathless and shaking as were a lot of people around me.

 I managed to get through with my grocery shopping, and when I checked out the girl said it was someone from our little town. Where we live, the Sabine River divides 2 small communities. I didn't immediately recognize the car, but I was so worried about who it was and was praying so hard. We knew she didn't survive.

 When I got home, I found out it was a sweet lady from our church that sat right behind us. Her name is Shirley Permenter. I just couldn't believe it. My heart aches for her family.

 The good news is that she is a child of God, and she will be reunited with her sweet daughter that passed away a couple of years ago.

  Ms. Shirley taught a lady's SS class for years, and she just gave it up last year. She has 2 daughters, a son, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren.
 Please keep them and her friends in your prayers.
Thanks so much,
Shirley

I am very sorry to hear of the loss. It is never easy to think of th "what if's" but in times like this it is also a reminder that everything happens for a reason, even tragedy sometimes.
