I lack time today for a fully-written-by-me post. I ran across the image below while browsing social media. Rick Warren lost his son to suicide two years ago. His son was twenty-seven, and he had suffered from mental illness all of his life.
I cannot imagine the pain of that day nor the continued anniversaries as his family mourns. If you are blue around holidays due to any number of reasons, remember that God longs to be the Comforter in your life. He came to earth as man, died on a cross, and was the first-born among the dead. All of this was done to reconcile you to Him.
