My heart goes out to Pastor Rick Warren (author of the best seller THE PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE) and his wife as they deal with the suicide death of their beloved son, Matthew.

No absolutely wonderful...
At least not all the time.
I can only imagine Pastor Warren standing and facing his congregation today being burdened by such overwhelming grief.

Blessings as you seek peace today.
Love to you...
