I was walking to worship on Sunday morning with Eddie, one of our church members. On our way across the street, Eddie replied to my inquiry about his weekend. He said, "I am just so sad. I miss Tracy. I still feel so sad."
"Yes, Eddie," I replied. "I also really miss her."
She has been gone almost a month, and the tears still come without notice. I'm still sad.
Dear Lord, please continue to touch the dark places left by our loss. Please continue to provide peace in our places of pain. Provide hope in our places of doubt. And remind us that from death comes resurrection. Blessed are those who mourn. They shall be comforted. Amen.
