“Even though I walk
through the darkest valley,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4
It has been an exhausting week. I attended two Celebrations of Life. Both sons called home to heaven, from an earthly perspective much too soon. Both of them knew Jesus. Thank God. It gives us the assurance of seeing them again.
Death is never something which gets easier. No matter how the person died, the hole left behind is irreplaceable. I once heard it described like pulling a nail out of a piece of wood, the hole still remains, nothing can ever fill it.
My heart grieves for the families of these two men. They have been left with a hole in their lives. Join me in praying for them as they begin to find their new normal after tragic losses.
