Well that FeedJit thing told me there was someone who found me from Kuala Lampur... WOW! I'm impressed. Of course--no comments. Oh well.
I guess I shouldn't feel offended in any way. I'm not sure I could even find KL on a map! I know, Geography...never one of my strong suits. Just ask my 6th grade teacher, Mr. Mitchell. I think I got 13 countries right on a identification quiz in front of the whole class.
So Tucker's funeral is tomorrow. It's hard to attend funerals for children, obviously. However, I totally regretted not going to Bronner Burgess' Life Celebration/Going Home. Thankfully, Rick made it available for all of the world to see. What a wonderful message for our Lord and Savior. How He works is always awesome! Romans 8:28 "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." Even in death, God is at work. As we lose our loved ones here on earth we find comfort in the Lord and in the knowledge that death has no sting for those who are destined to the Kingdom. You too, have an eternity...where will you spend it?
Heavenly Father, I lift up the Beam family to you today. Especially in their time of grief and sorrow we know that You too wept. You are our comforter and our peace in times of anquish. Although we do not understand your ways, for they, like the mountains are above ours we do know that you are in control. Today, tomorrow, always--forever. We see a child ravaged with cancer, you see a vessel meant to carry your Holy name. In his perfect body, he takes on the treasures built up in his short time on Earth. For all that are involved with the preparations and funeral services, comfort their hurt, make them strong, lift them up. For any that do know know you today--let THIS be the day that they change their eternal destiny and make you the Lord of their life! In your precious name, Amen.
Well done, Tucker, well done!
