The other biggest joy is being able to be a part of so many special moments in people lives.
Some of the moments are joyous and others are very difficult.
I received this heart breaking email from one of my college friends:
"Hey girl! I have a project in mind and thought of you. A friend of ours lost their 2 1/2 year old son last week. He passed away while he was sleeping during naptime. It was unexpected - he was not sick. The pastor shared a cool story during his funeral and I wanted to put the message on a canvas for the them. The main message of the story included these words, "The moon is round." In short, implying that when we see only a half moon or a crescent, the moon is still round...the same with God. When we feel like we see only a sliver of His love, He is still love...He is still full and round."
I suggested that we do a picture frame instead, so that they could put a sweet picture of him in it.
My heart continues to break for them. Please lift this family up in prayer. I can't imagine losing a child. I hope this picture frame is a reminder to the family of their precious boy and of God's sovereignty during difficult times.
