A Season of Sorrow

It is with a heavy heart today that I write this post. This morning, one of the ladies from our church became a widow. Her two children (ages 4 and 14 months) are without a father. It happened suddenly and was unexpected. John was 38. John broke his leg around Christmas-time and the working theory is he died due to a blood clot possibly from the broken leg.

Amy and I both knew this family. Their 14 month old was dedicated to the Lord at the same service as String Bean. Amy's husband, Filbert, grew up with John's wife, Debbie.

Pray with us for Debbie and her two girls. We don't know why the Lord chose to take John home, but we do know that the Lord has a plan for Debbie and the girls. We do know he will take care of them.

wow, mandie, my heart goes out. I can't imagine. You never think that a broken leg would end with this tragedy. I will be praying for the family. It is at times like these that I am glad that we have a God to lean on and know that He knows what He is doing!

It's really heartbreaking.
