Travel Theme: Still; A Prayer in Playa del Carmen

playadelcarmenchurch

A church in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on Avenida Cinco.

We took a moment to be still here, to pray for our daughter and son, for our family’s strength. We had just spoken with family who had called to give us the tragic news of our daughter and son’s devastating house fire.  I offered prayers of gratitude that their lives were spared.

Taking time to be still is needed to reflect and be grateful for what we have been given.

Thanks to Ailsa for this prompt http://wheresmybackpack.com/2013/12/13/travel-theme-still/

    Heartbreaking, Angeline. Are they able to rebuild? Is there insurance?
    Life can be so harsh at times.

  10. Oh, Angeline – It must have been terrifying for them (and awful for you, far away and helpless). Thank goodness they are safe and unharmed – that’s the important thing. And, armed with the love of family and friends, starting over will be a little easier. My best wishes.

  11. I’m so sorry to hear of your daughter and son’s fire. My brother lost his house to a fire in December a few years ago and the shock and loss is hard to manage but as long as everyone is safe it can be dealt with…

    Beautiful photograph. So sorry to hear of your daughter and son’s loss. It must be devastating for them. I hope this is one of those times that brings a silver lining in some form, otherwise it must be really hard to deal with.
    Sending prayers for all of you.
