Praying and Praying and Praying

"We're not necessarily doubting that God will do the best for us.  We are wondering how painful the best will turn out to be."   C.S. Lewis

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 Spencer Craven

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


  1. Please remember Bob also has a daughter, Cynthia, & granddaughter, Jaecyn, who are also hurting and in need of your prayers.


  2. Thank you for this. I am Bob's daughter and Jaecyn is my little girl. We appreciate all of the support the church family has extended for our family. It has been incredibly helpful.
