Keller: Life-changing moments happen fast

In the blink of an eye, a life can be changed. A young lady, Rachel Millet Lehmann, was killed in that deadly crash on I-12 May 26 in Covington.

Rachel’s mom and dad and her siblings grew up in Reserve. Our children attend the same schools, played together and were a big part of each other’s lives.

It’s been a few years since I’ve seen Rachel or her husband, Gus, who lived in Mandeville.

Since the news of her untimely death, I’m reminded of how short life really is. I’m also reminded that I need to pray every day for God to bless and protect my family from sickness, accidents and evil.

Speaking to my daughter, Ronny, she said that she admired Rachel’s bold faith in her Savior.

I have no doubt that the definition of “death” found in the Webster’s dictionary is wrong.

It states that it is the act or fact of dying, permanent ending of all life in a person, animal or plant.

As Christians, we believe that it’s the ending of a physical life, but the beginning of eternal life.

To people like Rachel, it means spending eternity with her Heavenly Father.

I pray that God will give the Lehmann family a peace that only comes from Him.
