Jacksonville Senior Photographer // Scarlett Lillian Seniors: Prayer request for the Frase family.

Prayer request for the Frase family.





It was Christmas afternoon. My mom, Stephen and I had just finished unwrapping presents and mom headed to the kitchen to start making our Christmas dinner. Stephen and I were hanging out in the kitchen while she cooked. Stephen on his new iPad I got him for Christmas, and me on my laptop thanking everyone on Facebook for their birthday greetings. I rarely look at the newsfeed because I get a little overwhelmed, but that day, a particular newsfeed caught my eye. Someone I had recently photographed had passed away.

I couldn't believe it. Tears filled my eyes. He was gone, Joshua Frase was gone.

Just a few weeks ago, I photographed the Frase family for their Christmas card. It was a normal day in the life of the Frase family with Joshua's mom and dad pulling him around in his permanent carrier he has been in the past 15 years of his life, and his younger sister Isabella looking so cute in the background. It was a cold day, but it was full of life and smiles and laughs in one of their favorite cities, St. Augustine.

But Christmas Eve, Joshua went home to Heaven be with Jesus. The Frase family has posted a public message on their foundation page. And I wanted to use this public medium to ask you for prayers for their family right now during this difficult time.

They also have a Facebook page for his foundation. I encourage you to go leave some love for his family on his page.

It's one of those things, as a Christian, I don't understand why children are born into this world with certain diseases as Joshua was, but I was reading this morning in my Bible about Jesus and a blind man in John 9. It said:

"As Jesus was walking along, he saw a man who had been born blind. His followers asked him, 'Teacher, who sin caused this man to be born blind- his own sin or his parents' sin?' Jesus answered, 'It is not this man's sin or his parents' sin that made him be blind. This man was born blind so that God's power could be shown in him."

In the 15 years that Joshua was here, he did just that, leaving a beautiful lasting impact on those whose paths he crossed. Through his foundation, millions of dollars was raised for research to help other families going through the same thing. I truly believe God had a similar purpose as the blind man through Joshua's life. To be used for God's glory. I can just hear Him saying now as He receives Joshua into Heaven, "Well done my good and faithful servant."

So very sorry to hear this. What a beautiful story of God's grace...His glory is displayed when His people love the helpless and trust Him to bring them through the trials.
My prayers will be with this precious family.
