We are hurting this morning.
Our church family has lost a faithful man of service.
Our church staff has lost one of it's own.
And a sweet, sweet family has lost a precious member.
Bob Craven had a motorcycle accident yesterday afternoon and went home to be with the Lord and Savior he loved so very much.
Lydia Craven is our youth department administrative assistant.
Matt Craven, their son, is a senior at Hyde Park and will be graduating on June 2.
In the midst of all the happy graduation festivities, there will be a lingering sadness because someone is missing.
And while we know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Bob is in Heaven at this very moment, there is still a family here whose hearts are broken.
Heal them, Lord. In Your way. In Your time. And love them as only You can.
"Because of the Lord's great love we are not consumed, for His compassions never fail!; they are new every morning; great is His faithfulness. I say to myself, the Lord is my portion; therefore I will wait on Him." Lamentations 3:22-24
