An unimaginable accident occurred in my area on Saturday morning. A groom was on his way to breakfast with his best man and several groomsmen 4 hours prior to walking down the aisle to commit til death do us part with the love of his life. A driver ran a red light and struck the vehicle driven by his best man and the groom, who was not wearing his seat belt, was ejected from the car and then hit by oncoming traffic and passed away. Knowing nothing of the accident, the bride continued to get ready for her walk down the aisle and wedding guests arrived at the church to learn that there would be no wedding, but instead a impromptu memorial service. With great grace and poise the bride addressed the crowd and professed her love for her now missing groom.
While I'd only met the groom on several occasions in social situations, the news of his passing has weighed on myself heavily this weekend. There are no guarantees in life, only in spiritual life. While it may be hard to see now or even in a year, God has a plan for each of us. Our time here is short, some shorter than others. Enjoy every minute and tell them. Tell your friends, family, significant other, and even furry friends you love them. You never know when it will be too late.
