Year 2013 & Year 2014 2

Tuesday, January 21, 2014



      Breaking news from WLFItv18 out of Lafayette this afternoon brought some sad, and frightening news from the PURDUE UNIVERSITY campus where two of our children attend classes. Although they now live as newlyweds in an off-campus apartment on the other side of the bridge into Lafayette, they still attend classes via walking. I turned on the news just as I woke up from another all-nighter up till early morning. To say it was shocking- is put very mildly! They're both just at the last of their education and right when I thought they'd missed just about every bad thing that could happen....
        Of course, the "Mom" in me just about freaks, and starts msging everyone to make sure they are all ok- both our own couple and also their friends. Seeing we are only 45 mins away and alot of them come from out of Indiana- esp those in Engineering with Brett.  Since this is the place where almost all of his classes are for his Nuclear Honors Engineering...well, you'd probably freak also. Getting a text msg back from Brett & Holli put me at ease- for a minute. Then I began looking up all his friends in Engineering (kids who've shared an apartment with him the past three years and then came to B&H's wedding in August) just to make sure. I was glad Brett put out a note on his FB page (shared above). But, our hearts are heavy for the two families- of the victim, Andrew Boldt, and of the shooter. May they find peace and comfort from our LORD and SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST, and may HE keep their hearts open to forgiveness. I thank HIM for watching over our couple, and know that HIS timing and every plan HE makes- all things of this world and in the Heavens that HE alone is in control of- is perfect even when we think or feel it's not. Amen.
