Widow

Recently a dear friend of mine became a widow.
It was not expected in a way that she or her children could prepare for this devastating turn of events
in their lives.
The grief and loss that they are enduring is beyond simple words to describe.
How do you seal an open wound that is left by the absence of someone that you planned to spend the
rest of your life with? For those moments when you turn to share something, funny or meaningful as you always have and then the realization of their death hits again.
How do you fill in the space of a missing dad for the everyday things? For the birthdays and holidays that will not be shared. For the graduations and weddings that will be minus one very important person.
As a friend there is sorrow for their pain and the frustration of not being able to fix it, to make all that hurt go away, and put that precious person back in their life.
No matter how much we want to fix it and make it all go away, we can't.

But there is a comfort that can be found for widows and the orphans.
It isn't one made by our love and tears.
But by the one that knows suffering like we will never know or endure.
By His love and tears that were freely given.

The one who knows both love and sorrow beyond words.
Our Lord, Our Savior Jesus Christ.
Who remind us that death has no victory over Christians, that those that love Him will meet again for an eternity in a far better place that where we weep now.



Isa 25:8 He will swallow up death in victory; and the Lord GOD will wipe away tears from off all faces; and the rebuke of his people shall he take away from off all the earth: for the LORD hath spoken it.
