Stopped in my tracks

Sometimes when it rains, it pours (like it is outside).

It also poured down in our church family yesterday. Early in the morning a woman died. Less than 6 hours later, a man died.

Both were in their 70's...both were struggling with different health conditions...both were what you could call "pillars" in the church...both have the same birthday...both are in heaven...and both will be buried by the end of the week.

The man graduated from IU back in the 50's and we regularly discussed IU sports. Zambrano and I had just been at his house last thursday during our 3 mile walk.

He was more than ready to go. His sickness had caused him to lose his voice...so often he would just point up and then give a thumbs up, as if to say "I'm ready for Heaven, it's going to be fun up there."

It makes you think.....about a lot of things.
