It’s Not Forever

As my birthday month comes to a close, I consider long life a blessing from God, especially if you have your health and independence and those close to you who make it so special. But one disadvantage is having to experience the loss of beloved family members and close friends. Over the years I’ve attended or been aware of so many funerals and memorials. Just a few weeks ago I attended a memorial for a sister-in-law who died unexpectedly. And I’ve lost another longtime acquaintance.  She worked upstairs in the same building where I worked. It’s sad. We miss them. As the Scriptures say, there is a time to grieve, and we should allow ourselves and others that time. But we can have the full assurance our loved ones are not gone forever. We will all be together again.
