Update on John

Precious John Romine passed away around 3:00pm today. They wanted to have him home (his physical home) but they didn’t quite make it. The plan was to transport him to Columbus Indiana’s hospice facility today. Obviously, God had made other arrangements. My sweet friend, Carol (John’s mother) just called to let me know. She sounded like any mother whose been fighting straight for months would. Tired, empty, sad, numb!

Pray for her and this family. The impact this young man had on this world has been incredible! He loved the Lord and lived that way out loud. He was a leader in all ways. John didn’t follow the crowd to be cool. He was careful and protective of himself. He was playing the game….by the rules. For those of you that are parents….he was the kid every parent dreams of having. Obedient, loving, caring, hard-working and determined.

This world is a better place because of people like John Romine. God, we thank you for sharing him with us for the last 22 years. We’ll miss him…..but not forever. Thanks to you, Lord. Amen.

Habakkuk 2:19 ” The Lord God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds’ feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places.”
