My emotions are all over the place right now. A good friend of mine lost her nephew this weekend to cancer. Sam was only 17. He was only just beginning his life. During the funeral, I got to see those life glimpses. I got to hear words about his loves – farming and hunting. Words that brought smiles. Words that brought tears.
There is so much pain touching Sam’s family and friends right now. He left behind a wonderful family and a remarkable girlfriend. A girlfriend who poured out her heart today to total strangers – telling everyone the impact Sam made in her life.
They need your prayers. They will be part of my daily prayer 111 today, tomorrow and into the foreseeable future. I am going to ask God to embrace Sam’s family and wrap them up in His carpenter arms and hug them for a long long time. Well after the tears stop.
I end this with this thought – I am going to hug my girls a little tighter today, and I am going to hug my dad and mom this weekend – with extra emotion.
