Jake's Passing

I don't have time to write much at the moment, but our nephew, Jacob is now at peace.  Thanks for the prayers of so many who carried him the past couple of days. 

Our Easter this year will take on greater meaning than ever, sadly.

I already know God is with Jake's parents and sisters, they carry the Spirit with them wherever they go, even into the Valley.

My Easter post was written and posted earlier this morning and you can read it after this one.

I grieve your loss, yet the timing of Jacob's death comes when we see death defeated by life. What life after life will be, I do not know, but I am assured that just as life has passed atom by atom, DNA strand by DNA strand down through the eons so it will continue on. Jacob is dead;long live Jacob! Jacob is dead; heart is sore for you. Jacob lives! Hallelujah, praise God.
