Weeping with those who weep
I am dedicating my blog to the family of Emmett James Stallings IV, who went home to the arms of His Savior early this morning, after a long, hard fight with cancer. Please pray for his wife, Wendy, their 4-year-old son, Quinn, his parents, Jim and Debbie, and his other family members and countless friends who are grieving today.
We do not grieve without hope (1 Thess. 4:13-18), and for that I am thankful. But I, and many others, are "weeping with those who weep" (Romans 12:15) today.
If you are interested in the Stallings' story, you can read their blog here.
I will come back in a day or two and share some of my memories of Emmett. I am thankful to have had the opportunity to be blessed by his life on earth.
