Baby Karson’s funeral was yesterday and it was tough. One of the unfortunate things about being a pastor is that you’re around sickness and death more times than the average person so in some ways you get desensitized to it. As I’ve had more and more family members die in the last few years, I realize that many times I have to be the strong one for other family members so it’s hard for me to express my own grief in ways that I probably should.
Yesterday though was unlike anything I’ve been a part of. To see that tiny coffin that I could have easily picked up with one hand and to see the emotion of my cousins who are like brothers to me, was very hard.
Now today I’ve got a very important meeting that has been weighing on my mind for weeks. Also today Lisa’s grandmother, who we are very close to, is having major surgery. It’s something she has been putting off for awhile because some of the doctors have been doubtful she’ll survive it. However, it needs to be done in order for some other life-threatening issues to possibly be resolved.
Add on top of all that, that I’m giving a vision message this weekend that I’ve been working on for months now…which will include a huge announcement…and I’m spent. Please continue praying.
