The Tragedy

Dear Readers,

     Amazing little signs happen every day in our lives to wake us up to God’s presence…


     THE TRAGEDY- Journal Entry, February, 2015


     A tragedy in my son-in-law’s family happened this week.  His 17 year old cousin was murdered in a teenage gang fight in California!  It involved drugs, selling, and turf.  The gang went to teach a boy a lesson but he surprised them, pulled out a knife, cut a few of them, and ran! 

     Two boys ended up going to the hospital where one died from stab wounds.  The boy they attacked was not charged.  It was ruled that he acted in self-defense.  Two boys were charged with murder and remain in jail.

     My daughter and son-in-law flew from New England to California for the funeral.  On route they had a spiritual awakening!  As they were trying to find their way to his cousin’s house, out of nowhere a heart shaped balloon suddenly floated up in front of their car window!  Written on the front of it were three words, "I Love You!"  It hovered over the front windshield for a while as they continued to drive and then suddenly disappeared before their eyes!

     I have been praying for almost 20 years for my son-in-law to accept Jesus and get saved.  I so desperately want him in heaven with my daughter!  They love each other very much, but still remain unevenly yoked.  I hope and pray this obvious sign from heaven will open his eyes to God being real!

     My daughter loves and believes in Jesus, but her hubby does not believe in any higher power, life after death, any of it!  I’ll continue to pray for his eyes to be opened by this event, and for God to send more awakenings.


                                   Love in Christ,  Claire xoxo
