I spoke with Rudy (JR's dad); he said that JR wasn't doing so good. I spoke with him about giving God control of the situation and that sometimes we just don't understand His will. Rudy shared with me that two weeks ago, he gave the whole situation over to God. He said that he has an amazing peace about whatever God does in JR's life. He said "Some people think that I am crazy...they wonder how I can remain so calm." There are many things that you may not understand unless you have given your life to Christ: 1. God gives peace to those who need it, if they are Christians. That peace is incomprehensible unless God has ever given it to you. 2. If you don't understand how great Heaven is, you may think being on earth is better. You see, Heaven is a perfect place with no pain and fellowship directly with God. There is no boredom. There are no tears. God may choose to take some and He may choose to leave some. His will is perfect, but it is sometimes beyond our understanding. This doesn't mean that we shouldn't be sad that our loved ones aren't here with us anymore. It means that if they are in Heaven then they are better off than we are in this sinful world, and they wouldn't come home if given the chance. So give praise to God for those that have gone before us. It is through God's grace that some of my dear friends who have lost sons and daughters are able to have peace. They are some of the greatest examples of God's grace and some of the greatest witnesses that I have ever met. I love you guys...your strength is an inspiration to us all. Your strength and prayers have helped us through this. Rudy understands this grace...DO YOU? If you don't, fall on your knees, and ask God to come into your life so that you can understand this miraculous grace. He gave His Son to die on the cross for all of our sins. All we have to do is accept it and live for Him. Bonnie and I love you all, and our greatest desire is that God be glorified through our situation.
