Tragedy struck this past weekend. A friend. A loving father of 4. A providing husband. He unexpectedly died leaving children hurting, and a wife questioning where her provision will come from. How can anything good come from things like this? It doesn’t make sense.
I pray that God will reveal himself. I pray, God, comfort them like you have us. Their pain is deeper and it will take a bigger miracle, but that is what you do. So do your thing please.
When viewed from this perspective, I am even more thankful for what has happened in our life. We have had time to enjoy each other, to plan, to have hope for long life, to see differently, to love deeper, and the list goes on. Thank you God for sustaining us. Please sustain my friend’s family.
Jay, we were so sorry to read of your friend’s death–and untimely too. You are correct, we all need to be thankful for each day and for the love that God provides to us. Be comfortable in the grace of God and know your friends family will be taken care of–like you and your family are.

Praying for your friend’s family and thanking Him in advance for sustaining them.
I will certainly be praying for your friend’s family. Is there anything we can do to help them. I have no commitments this weekend and can help where needed, including a meal. It certainly reminds us all that only God knows the number of our days. That was reinforced yesterday, when I saw the news about the Boston Marathon. For those without the peace of Christ, there is no hope and only fear of the future.
No truer words have been spoken about our friend we have lost who is with the God he so dearly loved. My our thoughts and prayers reach those who are left behind. He was a good friend, a wonderful family man, and will be dearly missed.
