Friends and Family, John and I wanted to share that we recently said good-bye to my grandfather as he passed away after a short battle with cancer. Last night we packed up the kids and left early this morning to make the 12 hour drive. We are heading up north to be with family and ask that you pray for safety on the road as well as for our family as we mourn our loss. Thank you so much for your faithfulness in interceding on behalf of our family!
“Jesus lost all his glory so that we could be clothed in it. He was shut out so we could get access. He was bound, nailed, so that we could be free. He was cast out so we could approach. And Jesus took away the only kind of suffering that can really destroy you: that is being cast away from God. He took so that now all suffering that comes into your life will only make you great. A lump of coal under pressure becomes a diamond. And the suffering of a person in Christ only turns you into somebody gorgeous.” - Tim Keller, Walking with God Through Pain and Suffering
