neither death nor life.

Romans 8:38-39
For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

       Today, July 17th, is a day that will forever be a horrible day in my life. July 17th, 2011 the day I got home from a missions trip and got a phone call from my best friend telling me to go bring my phone to my mom. It was only after that, that I found out my friend and her unborn son were died. I still to this day do not know how she died and I highly doubt I will till I get to heaven. All I know is its only been 2 years and I and everyone who knew here are still torn and grieving. A lot has gone down since 2011. Nathan is 4, I have graduated high-school, gone to madagascar and gone to college. I miss the talks she and I used to have with her when she would come visit my family. She would come visit at the most random of times and sadly most of the time I would think of it as a bother but now I miss those random visits, I miss driving around with her and laughing and watching bones and eating ice cream. 

        Two years later and everything has changed. But today I read Romans 8:38-39 and it gave me a weird peace just letting me know that no matter what, neither death nor this so called life, can take us away from God's love for us. His Son, Jesus still came and died for us on a cross. NOTHING can change that no matter what.
