found in the burned out trunk

In Loving Memory of

It was known the remains of this book were in the trunk.  In fact, the scripture viewable on it were what we were told let the emergency personnel know that she was a believer and, most likely, from the nearby Bible school, which then allowed them to find out who she was, since nothing remained to identify her.


   Not until 2 years after the accident, with the remains of the book simply sitting there with some other artifacts that were salvaged from the trunk (the trunk was the last part of the car to burn and not everything in it was entirely consumed as was the case with the rest of the car) was notice finally made of just what the content was on the page that was viewable on the top of the book...and it was a stunning find...

found in the burned out trunk Psalm 119:19
I am here on earth for just a little while...


...the beginning of chapter 6 from pastor Rick Warren's book "The Purpose-Driven Life" which Rachael had been studying at her Bible school.  The content of chapter 6 could not be more appropriate for Rachael's situation...yet...of course...for us all.

If you haven't read chapter 6 of this book...please...the next time you're in Wal-Mart or Barnes & Noble, stop and pick it up and read chapter's a quick read.  The content, however, is eternal.
