Social media has made it easier to keep in touch with people over great distances. As I watch people posting a variety of things about their families there is always one thing that stands out in my mind. We face a lot of transitions during the course of our lives. New jobs, illnesses, broken relationships, joining the military, or the death of a loved one can bring immense change into our daily lives. This is not always easy.
We are just a little over two weeks away from Easter. If your family will have one less person sitting at the table this year, or even a couple of people less, due to death, illness, military deployment, job relocation, or shattered relationships, please know of my thoughts and prayers for you. As difficult as it may be, I hope you are able to give thanks to the Lord for his mercy endures forever.
