It seems like everyone in Arkansas is effected by the kidnapping of realtor, Beverly Carter. Beverly was kidnapped last thursday and the efforts to find her and bring her home and been ongoing since then. Last night as I picked out the red I would wear today in honor of her, I texted my Arkansas friends here in at TCU to do the same. I then stopped to pray. I would say am I am a crime buff and I have seen so many cases where families would never know what happened to there loved one. Of course, I prayed so hard that she would be returned home safely. I prayed that God would give justice. When I woke up I was shocked at the news that her body was found and my heart hurt for all those involved in this crazy situation. I prayed and searched for a positive. The positive I am came up with is that at least the family will be receiving justice for the actions of the awful person responsible for all of his. I also looked at all the work the authorities and community have done to help. That is rare sometimes and I know they are so thankful for everyone's efforts. My aunt actually assisted in the efforts to find her and was so hopefully like many that she would come home. Beverly did go home, not the home we immediately think of, but I am sure that she living in the amazing presence of God as we speak! It is SO SAD. I cannot imagine having to go through something like this and I continue to pray that justice is severed and the family gets the answers they deserve. God always teaches us things, sometimes in the hardest ways. I believe he is showing us all the truth of the world and he is especially speaking to the realtors. Beverly will forever remind us to start taking proper pro-cautions in that line of work. I pray that nothing like this ever happens again because Beverly deserves people to learn from this. It is hard to be thankful in such an awful situation, but tonight I am thankful for the hard work of all those involved and that God seems to be present in this... even though it may not seem like it. He prepares us all for something big. Unfortunately this was Beverly's. May we all learn from this curl event and be thankful for the impact Beverly has made. I know I will never forget this. The world is such a curl place. Turn to God in time of worry and be thankful that he is with you. R.I.P. Beverly... you will be remembered always! My heart goes out to the family... May they feel God's presence during this hard time and look to him to lead them from this point. Prayer is so powerful... I know they need all they can get! Many are thankful for Beverly Carter today and see what an impact she has made and will make forever.

Blessed is an understatement when it comes to my life. Each and every day I am amazed by God's steadfast love.
