A Time for Everything

Category: Everyday News
Posted by: A

There is a time to rejoice!  Caleb Lindsey is the Southern Ohio Indoor Bluegrass Festival Mandolin Competition CHAMPION!!!!!!!  We got the news about an hour ago (we didn't all go to the festival) that he had won his new Weber mandolin.  They asked him to play a song on it, which thrilled him!  I'm so proud of him!


On a much sadder note there is also a time to cry.  Many of you heard of the tragic accident in Southern KY yesterday morning on I-65 N.  Of the eleven people that were killed there were nine of our friends and neighbors.  The pain is overwhelming, and the sorrow gripping.  There is absolutely nothing like hearing that the reason you're stuck in traffic for over an hour on your way back from Ohio is becuase nine of your friends died in a horrific car crash.  But the comfort is that God didn't forget to watch them.  As a matter of fact, it was such perfect timing for all that occured that I see no way that there was any coincidence.  And the truth is, Jesus loving people always win.  There's no losing with Jesus.  It's a secure bet and investment.  We cry and hurt for us, and for the family because it does hurt.  It could be a long time before we see them again.  But we're still the winners.  If it was the devil, His plan is backfiring as the story reaches across the nation being a light.  If it was God, then whether we live or die, we win.

In memory of John and Sadie Esh, their son Leroy and his wife Naomi, and their baby Jaylen, Anna, Rose and Rachel Esh, and Rachel's fiancee Joel Gingerich, and their friend Ashlie Kramer.

These people were a light to a dark world, and such a blessing wherever they were.  We loved them, and loved their friendship.  And their families.

In Sadness, and in Rejoicing,

Elisabeth for the Lindseys
