We don’t choose them, we are born into them.  It is meant to be a place where we find unconditional love.  Like many aspects of life there will be pain, frustration, embarrassment and we will fail each other…over all of that there is love.  No matter what we must go through we need to remember love.  It won’t be easy and we all need to turn to Jesus through the most difficult of times for peace, for wisdom.  My own family is facing an unexpected death as of yesterday afternoon and all I can do is seek peace from the Lord.  Please pray for us as we work our way through the coming days, and tell the members of your family how much you love them.  May we all find comfort in Jesus Christ.
