A Friend In Morning

We always know that while Jack Bauer is busy being tortured in a Chinese death camp for 24 hours, Keifer Sutherland will be sleeping in a comfortable bed that same night. And while Jack, Kate, and Sawyer try to find their way home without getting LOST. Matthew Fox and his fellow actors will be busy promoting the latest movie they made during the off time. That's the difference between TV and Radio. TV is filled with actors reading someone else's words and pretending to live someone else's life. Radio DJ's.the really special ones at least.let you into their world like a best friend.

I've been listening to Rick and Bubba every morning for over 5 years. During that time they have become a part of the family. At least twice a week, Lucy is poised the question "Did ya hear what Rick did today?" or "Did ya hear what Bubba said?" I no longer need to explain whom I'm talking about. By now they are just as much a part of the family as any cousin or grandparent we never see but talk to on a regular basis. This is why today I am sending out a prayer to not just some morning DJ, but to a friend in need of some extra attention from up above.

This past weekend the 2-year-old son of Rick Burgess, Bronner Burgess passed away after falling into the family swimming pool. This is a nightmare that nobody should have to live through and words fail me as to how to handle such a shock. I do know that the first thing I would do, would be similar to the first thing I did yesterday morning after hearing the news.I'd pray. Regardless if you've never heard of them or change the station every time they come on, please say a prayer for this family in need. Let them know that God is watching over them and through their faith in him better days will come.

From their site:

We ask that you bathe Rick, Sherri, and the entire Burgess family in prayer as they deal with the loss of their youngest son, Bronner Burgess.
We all are grieving together in this terrible loss.
The Burgess's want to give all Honor and Glory to GOD for the many blessings He has given us, especially the life of Bronner Burgess. And while we do not understand, we know who is in charge and His will be done in life and in death.

He died for us so that, whether we are awake or asleep, we may live together with him.
1 Thessalonians 5:10
