A Tale of Two Sons

Yesterday we received word that the son of a woman in our church, 35-years-old with four young boys of his own, a man we've been praying for regularly, is dying. By the end of the day, the word was that he was in his last day of life.

Yesterday I visited another young couple, part of our church, and held their baby in my arms, little Asher, born the day before.

And so we welcome one son in, rejoicing, and we let one son go, grieving. Our thoughts and prayers are with both families, holding both close to our hearts, holding both up before our gracious Father in Heaven, as one family begins a lifetime of meeting their son, watching him grow and flourish and become the man he's destined to be, as another family mourns a son, a father, a husband, a friend. Grace be to you both; may God's gentleness rest in your souls.

And remember - your Family loves you and cares deeply for you. We're here whenever you need us.
