Another Rough Week

A pastor friend of mine lost his wife on Saturday. She was baking cookies and her heart stopped. She was 55 years old and seemed in great health. People lined up for hours to say goodbye at the visitation on Tuesday and the church was packed for the funeral on Wednesday morning.

Two preachers both preached full funeral sermons back to back. Normally that would be excessive, but it was very well done, glorified God, and was an appropriate tribute to her.

One of the most moving things to me was that she had taught high school for 33 years and a huge troop of students and teachers drove over for the funeral. Please pray for my friend Kenny as he goes on, which will probably be the toughest journey he has ever made.
