“Our age is in love with easy answers. We dream that wrinkles can be ironed out with a set of bullet points, that satisfaction is just a website away. But life doesn’t work that way. Life can be hard. Loss can be crushing. We’re not always A-OK.” (author unknown)
Last week our lives were jolted by the harsh reality of loss. We watched the burial of a lifelong friends’ beloved teenage son. Jeremy was loved dearly each day of his brief, active life – by a big, loving, family, church, community and countless friends.
Life is precious – our children are a gift from the Lord. They’re ultimately in the hands of a sovereign, loving, God. And life on earth – is temporary.
~That’s the BIG PICTURE~
Love – “always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails… the greatest of these is love.” I Corinthians 13
