Mourn with Those Who Mourn
Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed," says the LORD, who has compassion on you.

I don't know why bad things happen period, but when they happen to good, innocent, people it's doubly hard to wrap my mind around. I'm grateful I don't have to understand to know that the God I serve and love has got everything under control. That seems so meager in hard times, but I know it's true. And I know that he is the God of restoration and healing and can bring beauty from ashes.
Lord, hold Geof and Gen and their sweet children. Help them feel your peace and comfort. Give sympathy and wisdom to those who are close to them who are caring for them during this difficult time.
Thank you for the beautiful life of Sebastian. Thank you that even a brief life holds so much value and meaning and can touch the lives and hearts of so many people. We won't forget him, Lord, and we're grateful for the time he did have on this earth. Amen.
