Grieving With Hope
Grief is so hard to function through and so the announcement for Matt's service is finally here. All family, friends, work friends, church family are invited. Please come and celebrate this wonderful man of God with us. This amazing man I got to partner in life with for 21 years as a married couple. This super dad of our 8 kids! Come hear about the hope that sustained Matt and kept him faithful 'till his last breath.
Thank you for the outpouring of love and prayers from all of you. Thank you for the calls, texts, cards, flowers, fruit basket and meals. I've been telling others that this is THE hardest thing I've ever had to go through in my life. The pain is so very real. The sorrow feels like it will not go away. I am fighting back tears that I think I should've run dry of by now.
But as I grieve, I do not grieve without hope. "For we believe that Jesus died and rose again, and so we believe that God will bring with Jesus those who have fallen asleep in him." 1 Thessalonians 4:13-14
