Dearest Friends, Family, and Fellow Brothers and Sisters In Christ that we have not as yet met,
We wanted to say thank-you and god bless you to all those who took the time to pray and intercede for our family. We have felt your prayers and know we would not have wanted to go through this most difficult time without those of you who have held up our hands.
God has truly comforted us as we seek His face continually. We cannot understand but we know and trust that He is sovereign. His ways are not our ways and His thoughts are higher than our thoughts. He knows the plans He has for us, they are for good and not for evil, plans to give us a hope and a future. While our hearts are broken and we miss our dear son, Elijah Liam, we know He is in the arms of Jesus. And we will spend eternity with him. " the Lord is near unto them who are of a broken heart; and saves such as be of a contrite spirit" Ps. 34:18 Please continue to intercede for our family, especially our oldest son Josiah, as he is taking Elijah's death profoundly hard. It is so important to stay vigilant in prayer always. And we are so very thankful for every prayer that is offered on our behalf. "Grace be unto you from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be God, even the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort; Who comforts us in all our tribulation that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds by Christ." 2 Cor. 1:2-5 "O taste and see that the Lord is good: blessed is the man who trusts in Him" Ps.34:8
Love and blessings, Larry and Dori, Josiah, Caleb, & Emily Grace
