Sympathy & Prayer

This is a card that I wish did not need to be made. My step-cousins 5 year old son died in a tragic accident 2 weeks ago. His name was Rhett and he was a beautiful, energetic boy that loved life, Jesus, and bright colors.  He would tell anyone that would listen about Jesus, and he had the utmost confidence in his child-like faith. Rhett lived the type of faith we are supposed to live as christians. So because Rhett loved colorful things, and because his mom loves green and purple, this is the card I came up with. We all use the phrase "life is so short" as more of a figure of speech. But never have those words had so much meaning and never have those words been so hard to swallow. It reminds me that each day is a gift, and the silly things that I grumble about or worry about, are so small compared to eternity. We have so much to be thankful for!

I am reminded of Romans 8: 38 - 39 
For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. (Romans 8:38-39)
