For Matt and Karen on this terrible day

"Lord Jesus Christ, by your patience in suffering you hallowed earthly pain and gave us the example of obedience to your Father's will: Be near me in my time of weakness and pain; sustain me by your grace, that my strength and courage may not fail; heal me according to your will; and help me always to believe that what happens to me here is of little account if you hold me in eternal life, my Lord and my God."
Amen.

From the Book of Common Prayer

I took Cathy to Dullas and then waited for them to come and stayed with them until they had to go through security. One of the hardest things in my life was saying goodbye to the little girl who won my heart and will ALWAYS be my granddaughter no matter where she is. She was smiling and happy and it was so hard to see her go. Psalm 34:15 says the Lord is with the brokenharted and wounded in spirit. We're claiming that verse today because it describes our family. Thanks everyone for your prayers and keep praying.
