Lots Of Prayers

Please pray for this family - Cole Ruotsala . My heart aches for them during this time of loss. The grief they are dealing with is so overwhelming and consuming in every way.

Please appreciate your children in everyway. Even if you didn't get enough sleep last night, or they interrupted you on the phone, you were late for work, no drinks or dinner with friends. They are your children, God willing they will be with you for a very long time. For those of us who have lost our children, please LOVE yours with everything you have in you!!

Lord, watch over this family as they grieve the loss of their son. Even knowing that he is in a better place does not lessen the pain they feel right now. Hold your arms around them and keep them tightly in your grasp. They will need you to hold them up throughout this time of need. Watch over them as the grieve and pray to you for the safe keeping of their precious, Cole.
In your name Lord, Amen.

That is so sad. Definitely a good reminder that life is very short and you never know what can happen.
