This has been a rather tough weekend. One of my precious former students unexpectedly lost her father Friday night. I got to visit with her and her mother last night and words can not describe the heart ache they are feeling. As Lisa (Coach Howard's wife) told me last night, we know that God does not make mistakes but we certainly do not always understand His plans. And that's ok, because God does not need our understanding, just our Faith. Please keep the Howard family in your prayers as they prepare to say goodbye to a wonderful man who loved them so much.
