a Prayer Request in the Wake of Tragedy
Earlier today my mom called me with horrible news. My cousin shot and killed himself yesterday leaving a wife and 3 children…a 20 something, a early grade age and a small toddler. I was…I am in total shock…I have cried a lot today…
Although, he is…was quite a bit older than me I still have fond memories of him. So much so that I had considered using his name when naming my oldest son. Ironically my son and cousin were both blessed with the most Ice blue beautiful eyes. There are a few pictures where 30+ years span but they have matching eyes. They were both BEAUTIFUL babies. My cousin was seriously Adorable…he could have been a child model and every company would have wanted him!
My sadness is not only for my families painful loss, but in the fact that a misunderstanding, and the feeling of rejection caused him to think that this was the only way…it breaks my heart more than I can express.
The pain and heartache that suicide leaves behind is so hard to handle.
I would like to ask you to please join me in praying for my Aunt, cousins (his siblings), his Children and Wife. Because Although, I feeling numb and very lost, but I have the Lord, they need Our Loving Lord right now too!
♥Brady♥ I love you…You will be truly missed!
I wish…I just wish it could have been different.
Your love, LORD, reaches to the heavens, your faithfulness to the skies.
