Sanctuary (After Loss)

This weekend’s “Sanctuary” is dedicated to the memory of my brother, Jeremy K. Mitchell, who fought a courageous battle against Huntington’s Disease. September 8, 1976 – May 7, 2010

“He will wipe every tear from their eyes, and there will be no more death or sorrow or crying or pain. All these things are gone forever.”

Revelation 21:4 (NLT)

The Lord is my shepherd;
I have all that I need.
He lets me rest in green meadows;
he leads me beside peaceful streams.
He renews my strength.
He guides me along right paths,
bringing honor to his name.
Even when I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will not be afraid,
for you are close beside me.
Your rod and your staff
protect and comfort me.
You prepare a feast for me
in the presence of my enemies.
You honor me by anointing my head with oil.
My cup overflows with blessings.
Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me
all the days of my life,
and I will live in the house of the Lord
forever.”

Psalm 23:1-6 (NLT)

    Oh wow.. sorry to hear of your loss. Very brave of you to post about it on the day he died. Not an easy thing to do. May 15th will mark a year since my mom died so Mother’s day will kinda stink this year..

    Praying for ya.
