God's timing

This weekend has become introspective for me.
On Saturday morning, I found out that my good friend's niece was killed in a car accident, her nephew is still in critical condition.
They were in a car accident with their parents, whom are okay.....hurt, but alive. Their entire life has changed, or ended, as the case may be.
And so, this has been sitting in the back of my mind since then. It seems so weird that everyone else continues on, as if nothing has happened, and to them, probably nothing has. People are busy, and their lives are filled and we forget the fragility of life.
These people will have to eventually move on with their lives. Right now, they wait, as a boys life hangs in the balance of life and death....will he join his sister, or stay with his parents.
I think of all my kids in youth group. It could have easily been one them, and we would be left.
Tired and weary.

Do you not know? Have you not heard?
The LORD is the everlasting God,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint.
