Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
steve, my most awesome cousin, fell while climbing a rock face in BC, and he didn’t make it. i don’t understand. i just don’t understand. maybe i never will, but perhaps it is not our place in this to understand, and rather just to trust. it still hurts though, a lot. wow, it’s very hard to think about this. wish i could be home, more than anything. miss you all and praying for you.
