One of our new friends from Wisconsin and an avid reader of this blog has just let me know that her son passed away this week. He was 33 and leaves behind a beautiful little girl, Emma, his wife Sara, and lots of family and friends.

When I met his mom, Suzanne, she spent a lot of time praying for me personally and for the band. She has kept up with me while on the road, she is one of those people who deeply cares for others and loves everyone she meets. So right now in this terribly painful time for her and her family, I ask that you keep them in your prayers. Really. Pray for God's peace and comfort, for their grieving process, their family...pray for her the way she has prayed for me and countless other people. The funeral is Saturday.

How fleeting life is. Embrace each moment today.
