R. C. Sproul Jr. on the Death of His Wife

Reflecting on the recent death of his wife, R. C. Sproul, Jr. wrote this on Twitter:

“I wish I had held her hand more”

That’s all he said.  That one got to me.  Husbands, hold your wife’s hand more.  Love her more dearly.  Kiss your kids.  Sacrifice your work and career to put them first.  (A recent film, We Bought a Zoo, tackled a similar theme in a moving way.  This song seemed to fit this little message–the film has in general a beautiful soundtrack capturing the beauty and tragedy of life.)

Now if you’ll excuse me, I must do the same.  I need to hold my wife’s hand.
