As today marks the one-year anniversary of my wife Lana’s passing into heaven, I’ve posted a few pictures on her blog of a memorial bench we’ve just had installed last weekend at a cemetery a few miles from our home as a special place to remember her. For those of you who live nearby and want to join us this Sunday for a day of remembrance of Lana’s life, I’ve included in my post more details and directions, along with more pictures. Thank you for walking through this important season of our lives with us. Tomorrow begins a new one! If you’re ever in Illinois and want a quiet spot to think and pray, Lana’s memorial is a perfect spot to do it! (And she would be thrilled to know that you were taking some to think and pray about anything going on in your life.) Thanks again for your love and prayers. Sincerely, Eric Elder
Here’s a link to more details and pictures:
God often gives in one brief moment that which he has for a long time denied.
Never speak harshly to an older man, but appeal to him respectfully as you would to your own father. Talk to younger men as you would to your own brothers. Treat older women as you would your mother, and treat younger women with all purity as you would your own sisters.
1 Timothy 5:1-2
The New Living Translation
We have found that marriage should be made up of two forgivers. We need to learn to say, “I was wrong, I’m sorry.” And we also need to say, “That’s all right, I love you.”
