We miss him. I hate that he only met Kendall twice, and that he'll never meet his new niece. I hate that we weren't able to spend more time with him. I hate that he's dead.
Grant was reading a passage in the Bible the other day, and shared it with me...it gave us such reassurance...
This passage from John 11 is talking about Jesus' friend, Lazarus, who died. Jesus is talking to Lazarus' sister, Martha.
Jesus said to her, "Your brother will rise again." Martha answered, "I know he will rise again in the resurrection at the last day." Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me will live, even though he dies; and whoever lives in me will never die. Do you believe this?" "Yes Lord," she told him, "I believe that you are the Christ, the Son of God, who was to come into the world."Even though Ryan is dead in body, he's alive in spirit, because he believed. Do you believe?
