Went to a funeral today in Magnolia. It was the mother and father of a brother and sister in our church. That was tough to watch. There is not much a person can do for someone in that kind of situation. Sometimes there is only the ministry of presence. I have probably missed opportunities to be “present”. But I am glad I didn’t miss this one. People need to know they are loved. And was an easy way to say I love you and I care about you. With me were my wife and another couple. I am just so glad we did that. We will be doing more this week but that is being done through our small groups.
