I was going in to check my personal emails, and I saw this story on the AOL homepage. I read the story, and it really forced me to step back and take a look at myself. I have been complaining and asking God why won't he make my business better. I have been complaining about the amount of money I have right now, heck... I think I have been complaining about everything.. The awesome thing is, in the midst of my complaining, the Holy Spirit steps in and jars me back to God. He reminds me of the fact that I have been in bad times before, but God has always brought me through. He reminds me that I should not be complaining about what I haven't, and thank God for what I have, both in the natural realm and the spirit realm. After all is said and done, I know I have God.... Too bad this poor lady didn't know that.... Mother, 53, Kills Self Before Foreclosure AP Posted: 2008-07-24 13:11:12 Filed Under: Mortgages TAUNTON, Mass. (July 23) - A 53-year-old wife and mother fatally shot herself soon after faxing a letter to her mortgage company saying that by the time they foreclosed on her house that day, she would be dead. Steven Senne, AP Local police said interested buyers arrived for the 5 p.m. foreclosure auction while Carlene Balderrama's body was still inside. Police in Taunton said Carlene Balderrama used her husband's high-powered rifle to kill herself Tuesday afternoon, after faxing the letter at 2:30 p.m. The mortgage company called police, who found Balderrama's body at 3:30 p.m. in her brown-shingled raised ranch house. The auction was scheduled to start at 5 p.m. and interested buyers arrived at the property in Taunton, about 35 miles south of Boston, while Balderrama's body was still inside, according to police chief Raymond O'Berg. Police did not immediately release the name of the mortgage company. O'Berg said Balderrama's fax read, in part, "By the time you foreclose on my house I'll be dead." O'Berg also said a suicide note found next to Balderrama told her husband, John, and 24-year-old son to "take the (life) insurance money and pay for the house."

Sad story, often times we do forget who has carried us through. Every morning I thank God for what he has done for me and my family and then I thank him for what he is going to do. 

I pray for the husband and son. May God carry them!
