Sad Day Happy Day

Yesterday was a very sad day. I watched a couple say goodbye to their 4 month old son who died from SIDS. I can't imagine what they are feeling. However they spoke at their own son's funeral. The words that came out of their mouth were not short of words straight from the Lord. I was amazed by their selflessness. They just wanted to use this time when the world they knew was watching and listening to point everyone to Christ. WOW!

I was really proud of our church. I called several folks at the last minute to see if they could leave work early to provide childcare during this funeral. No one told me no. We ended of having more adults than children but what a great problem to have! I overheard some women in the kitchen talking about FIF and their willingness to serve and it blessed my heart. I'm thankful that we were able to help in such a small yet important way.
