Where am I?

Hi, everybody. Just a quick note to let you know I’ve been having a weird week.

I attended a funeral on Monday, and that has just set my whole week off kilter. I’m always disconcerted when a young person dies. I know that God is sovereign and wise, and that His decrees are good, but, from my human viewpoint, I always think about the lifetime ahead that has been lost. And it's tough to watch parents bury their child. It reminds me of what our sin has done to the whole of creation. Death truly is the last enemy!

I’m working on a couple of good posts (as opposed to the normal drivel found here,) and, of course, this week’s Nut Cache!

See you soon!

Oh that's heartbreaking. From the article, it looks like the young man was a believer, so at least his parents have that comfort, but it's still heartbreaking.

It was a heart wrenching service, made all the more so by the fact that his father did the service. I wished for a stronger, more direct declaration of the Gospel, as there was a pretty good sized crowd, many undoubtably lost.
