Another one gone…

It has not been a good week for me. Or few weeks. Or month. Or the past few months. I have had several people around me die very unexpectedly. I found out about another one today. A young man that I had help teach in our church’s youth group. He was getting ready to go to college. I dont even know how or what happened. All I know is someone else I know is gone. So much death in the past few weeks.

 

I call to everyone to take some time and hold close those around you. Take time to spend a few extra moments with them.

If you will excuse me, I need to go hug my family and spend some time with a stuffed plush pony.
