A second much sadder post today.

My little Utopia was seriously shaken up this week.

In my tiny little cow town, a well known family is greiving tonight.

Some seriously deranged men attacked and killed their son/brother/uncle.


He was on life support for most of the week while the family came to terms with their loss.

Yes, the seriously deranged men were caught.

And now will be tried with murder...

But the story doesn't end here...

Through this tragedy many lives will be changed forever.

The family donated all his organs so others can live.

A specific organ was offered to my cousin since they share the same rare blood type,

But the hospital said they already had a recipient that had to receive it.

So, tonight I ask that you pray for two specific things.

The first is the family who just lost a beloved member.
That they will find peace at this holiday season.
That they will remember with joy the son/brother/uncle they just lost.
That they may some day find forgiveness for the seriously deranged men who ended this life.
(I had a difficult time even typing that sentence)
And that Those who did receive the organs will survive the operations and go on to live full and happy lives.

Second for my cousin.
Who will die without a transplant.
Who has 4 children.
Who Loves the Lord with all her heart.
Who knows her future...
That she be given a chance to see her children grow.
That she be there for graduations, weddings and baby showers.
(because every mommy wants these things)

And That in all this pain and suffering God be glorified!

And some inspiration the LORD has provided...
James 1: 1-3 Consider it pure joy my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.

Hebrews 13:20-21 May the God of peace, who through the blood of the eternal covenant brought back from the dead our Lord Jesus, that great Shephered of the sheep equip you with everything good for doing his will, and may he work in us what is pleasing to him through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory for ever and ever.

Isaiah42:3 A bruised reed he will not break, and a smoldering wick he will not snuff out. In faithfulness he will bring forth justice.

Romans 15:13 May the god of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Thank you for your prayers. Karyn


  1. Karyn-I read this on your Mom's blog. This so sad. Yes, I will pray for all of these things.

  2. Karyn, How wonderful that this family donated organs so that other's may have a chance at life! I pray that a donor will come through for your cousin.
