Yesterday I found out that a friend of mine's 10 year old son, RJ, is in a coma.
We never understand why time on this earth is shorter for some than others, but it is even more difficult when they are a young child. As we celebrate the birth of one child this Christmas Season, I will be praying for the life of a very special little friend.
This kind of news brings everything into perspective. Cherish loved ones, and the real gift of life and health and love we are blessed with everyday, not just the Christmas gifts under the tree.
If you are reading this blog... take a moment now to pray for RJ and his family and all those who are ill or suffering at this very moment. May the peace of Christmas be on all and may we remember how precious our time is here on earth.
