Full of Tears
My heart and eyes are full of tears as I write this. Another angel has made the trip to heaven and is rejoicing at the feet of Jesus. While this picture makes me smile the pain of this loss leaves me speechless. I find myself clinging to my Lord and to my own family, wishing my girls were home. Didn't I just go through this just a couple of weeks ago? Yes, we experienced the death of a teenage friend recently and I went through similar feelings then. In March, my grandfather passed away so these feelings are not new to me this year. Sadness seems to be rampant in my life these days. I find myself clinging to the Scripture, "Blessed are those who mourn for they shall be comforted." Matt 5:4. I know my Comforter, Holy Spirit, is here for me, and He is continuing to comfort me. He has brought me through each of these instances and this one will be no exception. I am confident in my Saviour for He sent the Comforter and one day He will return for me and I will be reunited with those we have lost who have loved Him. Joan, I will see you one day smiling with our Jesus!! Love to the Francis family.
