Today was a black day…  150 people died in a plan crash…fathers, mothers, teens and even babies.
All in a glimpse of a second. People die every day…Some because of age, some because of sickness, some of war… It’s always a tragedy. Beloved people that leave a hole in the hearts of their beloved ones. But plan crashes are so bad. It always kills some many people at once. That makes them sound so horrible.
When I heard it the first time I still thought may be some get out of this tragedy. I dunno why but I hoped to read something like “there are survivors!” In the tweets and news. But when I saw the first images I know no one will come home of those passengers.
Even that I don’t know anybody of those poor souls it saddens me today and I will spend some time to think about it and how pressures life is.
My thoughts and my prayer tonight will go out to those relatives and people that lost friends and family members. I hope that the Lord will dry their tears some day. Psalm 23 comes to my mind and if somebody that is affected by this tragedy might read it I hope he/she finds comfort in those lines:
The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,
he refreshes my soul.
He guides me along the right paths
for his name’s sake.
Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,[a]
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely your goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of theLord
forever.
