Richard and Linda are grieving and mourning over the loss of their son Garrett. He died on Monday. Garrett's funeral is Saturday at First United Methodist Church in Port Orange, FL. It starts at 4pm. Today my friend Russell posted this prayer on his blog.
"Father, thank You for friends during times of need. All love originates from You, but it often arrives through the actions of Your sons and daughters. Father, there is a lot of pain in Port Orange this week. Your love gives us peace, but our hearts are breaking for the loss of Garrett and for the suffering of his family. We cry out to You, Father, give us peace, but stir our spirits to never forget. We ask Your forgiveness, we could have done more. We lean on and cry out to You in Jesus name."
Matthew 5:4: “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.”
