God’s Intended Destination

Many of you that read my blog know my sister-in-law, Jan Cochran. Yesterday afternoon, Jan left for work as usual, but rather than reaching her intended destination, she was ushered into glory with her Savior.

The police investigation is ongoing, but it appears an intoxicated driver veered in front of Jan, causing a head-on collision. He was driving a pick-up. Jan was driving a small car. They attempted to get Jan’s heart going in the ambulance, but were unable to do so.

We have the sweet confidence that Jan is with her Savior, and that this has not taken Him by surprise. For us, on the other hand,  we’re here still on earth thinking this just doesn’t seem real.

Jan was a special woman who had a positive impact in so many of our lives. She will be greatly missed. We appreciate your prayers during these difficult days. We’ll update you when funeral arrangements have been made.

    Very sorry to hear this. Our thoughts/prayers are with you at this grievous time. These are tough things to endure as there was no time to ‘prepare’ or to say goodbye. However, the family know without a doubt they will see her again and that is their hope!

      Thanks so much for your prayers. We’ve had some good family time together, remembering all the good times. Jan will definitely be missed, but we’re grateful to know she is with her Lord and Savior.

    We are so sorry for your loss. What would we do without Him?

    Praying for you Rosie, and your family as well during this time. You have always been an encourager and an uplifter in the Christian walk. May you be lifted up by our prayers at this time as well. ~ Mike

      Thanks, Mike. There is great comfort in knowing how many are upholding us in prayer.

    Our sincere condolences to you both Rosie. What a tragic waste of a life.

      Thank you, David. We’re thankful for the many years we’ve had with Jan and for the impact she’s had on so many lives. She will be greatly missed.

    our days are numbered, as the very hairs of our head, we read in Luke and elsewhere. But our loving Father deems it best that we not know their number. Jan fulfilled hers, in His loving Providence, Whose ways “are past finding out..” May His grace and peace give you that “joy unspeakable and full of glory”.
