A friend of our daughters, whose name is Ashley - her husband Jeremy, was killed instantly in an auto accident yesterday. He was broadsided in an intersection by someone running a red light. The woman causing the accident was not hurt and neither were a father and child in a pick up truck that was rolled over.
They are twenty-three, just finishing college - no insurance, and leaving behind two little ones, 2 and 6 months old. The school, hearing what happened, has already given her a scholarship that was not taken to finish out her last year of nursing school. So I am sure God is going to take care of them, but my daughter said ‘mom have you placed them on the prayers lists?’
Please lift that little family up in prayer.
** The Holy Dormition of the Mother of God**
O Mother of God, in giving birth you still preserved virginity and in falling-asleep You did not forsake the world. **You are the Mother of Life and have been transferred to life, and through your prayers have delivered our souls from death.** *(Troparion for August ** 15)*
