My only sister, Heidi M Allen, was kidnapped on April 3, 1994 ~ Easter Sunday. I remember asking, "Why would someone kidnap a person on Easter?" The law enforcement's response to this question left me to shake my head in disbelief. Criminals thrive on holidays because there are less people frequenting the store, less traffic on the road, and minimal law enforcement patrolling. Seriously?!
I spent a decade avoiding Easter celebrations, blaming God, and Easter. In truth, the only thing the holiday, Easter, had to do with Heidi's kidnapping was it made it an ideal day to kidnap Heidi. The kidnappers used the silence and innocence of our town to their advantage but thankfully God works for good in the worst of situations.
It's a lot to take in, isn't it? Do you see that little girl looking into the camera with a question on the tip of her tongue? I don't know what I was thinking that day but I've always asked a lot of questions.
This year, instead of asking questions about the details in life, I encourage you to ask the important question...Who do you trust with your life? Have you trusted your life to Jesus? He died for you too...
