Late last week I was sitting at the computer reading the discussion about Magic Mike. Yep, the movie. It has been a pretty heated debate about why or why not people should or should not see it.
Then I was reminded that it really does not matter. MM is fake, it is make believe. Who cares!
I was reminded of something much, MUCH, more precious than some silly movie.
Life Is Precious.
We never know when our time will come.
We never know if something is going to happen.
We never know.
Last Friday a friend of mine posted that a daughter and cousin of one of her friends went missing.
The girls are 8 and 10 (or 11, reports vary).
Their names are Elizabeth Collins and Lyric Cook.
I ask that you stop, STOP RIGHT NOW! I don't care where you are, I don't care what you are doing. Just STOP! Now, please PRAY for these precious children. Pray for their safety, for their strength, for the courage that they may need. Pray for their safe return. Pray for their parents, family and friends. Pray for every single person that is helping to find these girls. PRAY!
I do not know these girls, we actually live states away. I do know one of their friends and I do know that one of the girls is close to my daughters age. I have been sick all weekend thinking about what the poor parents must be going through. I just can't imagine.
If you are close to the area the girls went missing from, help if you can. If you are not close, you can still pray, you can pass info on, you can look in your area. The girls could be anywhere by now and I just pray they are OK. Let's bring these girls home!
