The memorial service for Silas was this afternoon. We just had a few family come visit for it - a small group. Our pastor had a brief but profound worship service for us. I am thankful to reflect on God's purposes, which are higher than mine, for all my children. Silas is busy praising our Lord now, which is a great and high calling. And, he never had to go through all the pain and trouble of this life.
Yet I certainly still grieve at his death. There is a particular kind of pain in burying your own child.
I can't thank our friends and family enough for all the love expressed in various ways. I pray God would reward you because I am not adequate to do so.
Soli Deo Gloria.
