Death and Life

My friend’s grandmother just died.  In the last few days, I’ve been remembering how I grieved when my grandfather died back when I was in college.

We are marked by the passing of those we love.

Death and grief — painful and necessary as they are — can be catalysts for new awareness, growth, and even hope for the future.

All day I’ve had this verse in my head.

For while we are in this tent, we groan and are burdened, because we do not wish to be unclothed but to be clothed with our heavenly dwelling, so that what is mortal may be swallowed up by life. – 2 Cor 5:4

Selah, as it says in the Psalms.  Pause, and quietly think about that.
