This afternoon I have to lead a memorial service for a middle-aged father who ended his life prematurely! Like most ministers/pastors I do not find this kind of thing easy to do. It always brings up so many questions in my own mind. On a slightly positive angle it certainly shakes me up enough to force me look at my own life and to re-evaluate what is important. Kim and the boys certainly get bigger hugs on days like today. Life is a precious gift - it is here today, but can vanish in a breath.

Make today count, my friends.
Living in Grace,
