A Death in the Family

Death saddens us because of the separation it causes. Our faith comforts us with the knowledge that we will be together in happiness again.

Dear Lord,
Sometimes it is hard to understand the pain that comes into our lives.
This is most true when we lose one we love.
At this time, we remember that life is a circle.
You have given us eternal life.
In dying, our loved one has come back to you as will we all, in our time.
The mystery of life is that sadness
brings us to our greatest happiness.
Bless, with your presence, those we love and miss.
