We mourn the loss of one of our family. There are still reasons to be thankful. God is still good.
I'm thankful for Wesley and the (not enough) months I got to know him. He became my brother. I'm thankful that the last time I saw him, I hugged him tight and told him that I love him. I'm thankful for the Lord's grace in that. I'm thankful for the sweet marriage he had with Jessica and for giving us his daughter, our first niece. I can't understand why he is gone, and we may never understand on this side of Heaven. But I'm thankful that Wes is there and we will see him again. Right now, it doesn't seem real.
We are thankful for family and for friends who support and pray for us. Please continue to lift us up.
And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Look! God’s dwelling place is now among the people, and he will dwell with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. ‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes.There will be no more death’or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”
