Does that mean all news is bad news?
It would certainly seem that way here just now.
Yesterday I heard that my work colleague Martin passed away on Sunday. He was 53. Then this morning I heard that the mother of one of Alex's nursery friends died last Wednesday, aged 39.
So all in all lots of sadness.
Tonight I am praying for Jamie, Martin's son, and for Alex's friend and her 3 sisters as they face life without their mummy.
