My drive to work...

Every day on my way to work I pass by a cemetery. It's a large cemetery with many headstones and some shade trees. In fact my grandparents and other family members are buried in that cemetery. Often times, sadly, I see a  tent and most times when I see it I say quick prayer for the families and friends of the one who has passed away, knowing that it's a very sad day for all those people. Today however was a different day... As I saw the green tent and thought to say a quick prayer I noticed that there were only two people under the tent and I noticed that the casket very small, the size of a baby. I began weeping as I drove into my workplace and tried to stop the tears as I parked my car... all the while pleading with the Lord to just provide whatever the parents needed. I was appalled there were only two people there, but then I don't know their circumstances... and it just reminds me that I can't always judge a situation by what you see.  I don't know them,  i don't know their situation, but I know they need prayer. So I ask you that if you are reading this to pray for the family. Once again, I don't know who they are, I don't their names and I don't know they're circumstances, but I know today was a very bad day. I know they need comfort and I know they need peace that none of us can provide, that no friends or family of theirs can... but only the peace and comfort  the Lord can. So please be in prayer for that little family who buried their child today and hug yours tighter. Be thankful for who's around you and just know that somewhere in Hattiesburg there is a family who need a lot of prayers. 

Love y'all,
