ok life has been super complicated these last couple days…. its hard to even imagine that all this was gonna happen!!! ok my last entry was on tuesday….. but lets rewind a few days, it was on friday that anna had met a guy named steve, they hit it off perfectly and within the next day they were goin out, they really really liked each other too!! well on sunday they hung out the entire day and went out to eat and it was all good, well on monday anna left for volleyball camp and she talked to steve off and on while she was there well on tuesday she talked to steve and then called me…… she told me how much she missed him and wanted to come home and she really liked him, well she was supposed to call him at 11:45 that nite…… well that nite at church (10:45) i got a call and found out that steve had been in an accidnet and was killed. talk about total shock i didn’t know what to do…. i just sat there and cried while i talked to anna (who was absolutle bawling) and everything was just a mess….. so the next day anna came over right after volleyball camp and we went to church, we left chruch early and went to see jenny at her church and was there for a little while and was just talking to alot of people…. well one good thing is that out of all this everyone is soo confused because they say it was suicide, how? we think but we dunno……. but as a result of this Steve’s best friend Nick accepted Christ! How awesome… right?! well ya, so me and anna go back to cable road (her eyes completely avoiding west diller) and we said bye to a few peeps and we got somethings to eat and picked out flowers to take to where the accident happened!! but that nite me and anna just talked alot and we’re all in a lot of shock over this!! it just doesn’t seem real……….
well today we got up and picked up my bride’s maid dress, then on the way back jenny called us and told us that Steve’s parents were at the appt and wanted to meet anna, we get there and they hugged and cried but then they told her that they had something for her in the car, so steve’s dad goes down and brings up a box….. when they cleaned out steve’s truck they found a box from Kay Jewelers and they realized that it was for anna, inside was a ring that steve was goin to give anna but it was white gold white a diamond shaped green stone, it was absolutely beautiful and it fit her finger, she was crying when she saw it and so were steve’s parents, but we talked to them for a little while and then we went to the mall and scheduled an appt for me and we went to meijer and bought flowers for steve…. we picked up jenny and headed on over…… it was a trajic sight…. the tree was torn and there was glass everywhere but we stood there and stared and his parents came too, we all hugged and cried some more, but we left after the neighbors came and talked to us and we went back to the appts….. we all shared stories abot steve and just talked to each other for a while.. it was good therapy for everyone and then after while me and anna came back home and her we are… its been a long hard 2 days really for anna, nick (his best friend) and his parents….. but i pray that everything will be figured out in time and that only good comes from all this!!! God give them strength to make it through all the services and work in their hearts that they know this is of you!
James 1:2-4, 12
My brethern, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing…… Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall recieve the crown of life which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
