Happy Valentine’s Day

Happy Valentine's Day

You know how much I love Valentine’s Day, but ours has been a bit more somber than usual.  A friend of ours passed away this week, leaving behind his wife who is in her early thirties and three young sons. They have been such an example of showing joy, contentment, and grace even when times are harder than most of us can begin to imagine. Such a heartbreaking reminder that we are like smoke that appears for a little while and then is gone (James 4:14). His wife has peace that surpasses understanding today, knowing that he is praising Jesus in Heaven right now. Ultimately, that’s the only thing that matters.

Hug your valentines closely tonight.
