Psalm 34:18

The Lord is close to the brokenhearted

and saves those who are crushed in spirit.

Today, my heart is aching for our friends, Luther, Gunnar, and Maverick.

Luther’s wife Bridgett went Home to be Jesus yesterday after only three weeks of fighting leukemia.

Gunnar and Maverick are middle school friends of Olivia’s, and Luther is a teacher and coach at the high school Todd attends.
Bridgett and Luther reflected Christ in all they did.
I remember Luther coming to our house and bringing Nick an East Carter football jersey and telling him that he looked forward to Nick wearing it one day.

Nick never had the chance to be on the team, but he sure grinned as Luther gave him the jersey.

After Nick passed away, Bridgett made sure the doctor’s office she worked in received a Nick’s Nook for their waiting room.

I have pictures of both of these events but just haven’t had time to find them yet. I will soon.

For now, please pray for the Jarvis family during this difficult time.

Thankful for the promise of God’s nearness to those who are brokenhearted.
