Weeping may Endure for a Night but Joy Come in the Morning
Often times, we are so wrapped up in the moments of grief, our focus is limited. Yet when the shades of darkness slowly slip away, we see the reality for what it is. Death greets every one of us. As we age, we see more of our friends and family pass away.
Gone on before us, they are preparing a way. We know there are mansions being built for us for the eternal life that we will one day enjoy, yet at the same time, we grieve over our losses.
Here on earth, there is only once chance to get it right and we are left to pick up the pieces after a loved one dies.
We are left with the broken memories and shattered dreams. We are left alone, sometimes feeling abandoned.
Life altering moments come upon us and we are never the same again. Death creeps into a person's life sometimes slowly, other times with a charge. When we encounter it, we have no other choice but to face it.
For those who read this message today and have recently lost someone, may you find peace in your heart, love in your spirit, and joy in your soul.
For weeping may only last but a night, but the joy, oh the joy, will return in the morning.
