People we are here in a somber time.
Our time here on earth is very short and we are just passing through.

A just few months ago Shawn stood with his son, Cole as he was baptized.
This made me think of this passage from the Bible.

Mark 1: 9-11

9 And it came to pass in those days that Jesus came from Nazareth of Galilee, and was baptized by John in the Jordan.
10 And straightway coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opened, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him.
11 And there came a voice from Heaven, saying, Thou Art My Beloved Son, In Whom I Am Well Pleased.

We are all Gods children and Im sure our Heavenly Father is tell Shawn, you are my beloved Child of whom I am well pleased.

I know that Mickey and Randy are also saying, Shawn you are my beloved Son of whom we are very pleased. I know that Shawn is also looking down right now with his little quirky smile and saying Cole you are my beloved Son of whom I am well pleased.

For those of you who are somber here today, remember that Jesus also said as he hung from the Cross , Father why have thou forsaken me. Remember Jesus arose on the third day to be with his father in Heaven.

Let me said that God has not forsaken us either,
because there is victory in death.

Let us be reminded, when we all get to heaven what a day of rejoicing that will be AND when we all see Jesus we can shout the Victory.

I know Shawn is shouting his Victory right now.

Let us all remember

John 3-16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him shell not perish, but have everlasting life.

Amen and Amen

A great Song , Let me tell you a secret about a fathers love....

He was a great guy. I could always count on him to help me laugh off difficult times. I enjoy my memories of him listening to me drum and encouraging me. The world is worse without him and he will be missed.
