A Loss

My heart is aching for a family in our church who has lost their wife and mom.   She was a wonderful person with a great sense of humor and loved God deeply.   It is a bittersweet, because I know she is sitting with Jesus, and yet, I feel for her family members still here.    To have her one minute and not the next is brutal.   On this week when we are celebrating what we are thankful for, a family is grieving over their loss, a pain so deep and so acute. 

Today, as I lift this family in prayer, I hope that you hold the ones you love close.   Nothing is guaranteed, and I am reminded of that again.
