10 years ago today…

Ten years goes by so fast…yet at the same time it can seem like forever ago. Today marks ten years since my brother went home with the Lord. We didn’t “lose” my brother, because as I often tell folks, when you lose something you don’t know where it is. We shared a room for almost 20 years. We argued, fought, laughed, goofed off, picked at each other, played together, studied together, grew in our faith, double dated, sang together, stood with each other at our weddings, rejoiced with one another in the birth of our children, prayed together. We talked sports, life, relationships, family, faith. We were friends and brothers. I was blessed to have him in my life so close and for so long. God used him to accomplish much for the Kingdom. Eternity will tell the impact. I can’t believe it’s been 10 years, but in many ways it seems so long ago. I know that when we meet again, there will be much catching up to do. Even when we would go months without talking or seeing each other, we could always pick up as if we’d just been together earlier in the day. Thank you God for my brother Mike. I’ll see ya later bro!
