The speed at which the world changes...

It's amazing how fast one little bit of news can bring your whole day to a stop and make you reflect on what's really important. What was beginning to become an evening of smiles and giggles has suddenly turned into an evening of tears.

We just got news that a good friend passed away in a terrible car accident this afternoon.

Mike Burke was my youth pastor through junior high. His wife Lisa was a great friend to everyone. She was a bright shining light in what can at times be a truely dark world. I can't even imagine her without seeing her beaming smile. Lisa loved God and shared His love with everyone that she came in contact with. The world is a better place for the time that she was here with us.

We love you Lisa and will miss you.
