I believe some of you do not have families or hearts. Your opinion on what happened Sat isn't important nor helpfull to the loved ones of these men. What matters is that these 3 men are found and come home to their families safe!
Dear Heavenly Father I pray you lift these men up in your arms and give them the strength to fight and come home safe. I pray you lift their families up in your arms and give them the strength to not give up. I pray you give the coast guard the knowledge of their where abouts and location Lord to find them and bring them home safe to their families. Lord allow their families to see only your footprints as you carry them through this terrible situation. Lord Please be with anyone involved in this whom love and care for these men and their families.

When I said thank God for letting it happen I meant Thank God for allowing them to be found. Please do not read that the wrong way.

My thoughts and prayers go out to the family and freinds, i being a offshore fisherman myself and having some close calls with mother nature. Just cant get off my mind that nothing was found, so that tells me that the boat is not sunk, cause there would be something floating somewhere. Has the thought of pirates crosed anyone elses mind.

this is what I have seen posted......
A day after the U.S. Coast Guard suspended a weeklong search for three Matagorda County boaters missing at sea since they failed to return from a fishing trip, the three men have been found alive, a family member of a fiancee of one of the men said late Saturday.
James Phillips, 30; Curt Hall, 28, and Tressell Hawkins, 42, were found 180 miles off Port Aransas at sunset Saturday, said Brenda Kern, whose daughter Rebecca is engaged to Hall.
More information will be available later.
