King5: Charlene Sanders Story

Wow. I have to spread this story. I woke up this morning to the radio's news about this family in Pierce county, who posted an ad on Craigslist for a ring they were selling. A group of 4 people showed up at their house to see it and when they got in to the home, they started tying everyone up. As the father (43 years old) turned to protect his son, who was starting to take on the attackers, they shot & killed him. When I went on to King5 this morning, this video was on the front "page". I clicked it, thinking she was going to be talking about the attack and was surprised to hear her talking about her faith. I can feel the emotions that she is keeping in wrap and the need to focus on The Lord, the need to make her husbands ministry count and to not be beat down by these people that took her love. I was impressed that King5 actually posted the interview.

We take so many things for granted - like our time here on earth and we are so wrapped up in really unimportant irritants with each other as humans (I am presently very guilty of this), that a story like this - what would you do if you were facing the end of your life this very second? A sobering question that we ignore too much. Her very end comment about them being a blended family and now her husband's son, who came to live with them as a family, no longer has his parent. What a rendering this boy has in his soul, one the enemy delights in using to destroy another human. Thank God for loving people who surround this family in their need and support them as they process their loss. Thank God for her courage to say what she did to news reporters! :)
