Lately there have been a lot of people who have lost loved ones or are loosing love ones. My heart breaks for them. Our pastor Dave Workman wrote this blog post on Monday about all the losses he has had in a few short weeks. What a crappy time for him. Please keep him and his wife in your prayers as they grieve so many losses.
This family is loosing a battle to keep their son alive. He has a chronic illness that has caused them to make some rough decisions this week. Please pray for God to guide their decision and do what is best for Gavin. My heart has broken for them because I have children the same age as theirs. I don’t understand how hard it is on them but I keep praying for them. When I read this post on the DNR decision, I cried. What a hard choice to make and yet understand it is best for your child to be able to live what is left of life before moving on to the arms of Jesus. Makes me thankful too that my kids are healthy.
Then there is this blog. Time is coming up on the one year anniversary and it stinks too. Keep them in your prayer as this dark time comes upon them.
On Monday night I happen to tell my husband about Gavin, he is somewhat familiar with his story and he asked “Did you read Dave’s post?” Of course I hadn’t but headed over there. Then I spent the next 45 minutes in prayer, for as Dave put it, DEATH SUCKS. The lost of too many too young people.
The light at the end of the tunnel is that all of these people are or will be with Jesus. No more tubes or pain. Just Jesus. I don’t think there is a better ending then that. Even though we are sad here on earth that we don’t get to be with them anymore, Jesus is delighting in them coming home.
