someday the fog will clear and the sun will rise again. when all the world falls under a shadow, it is only for a season.
hope gives confidence in the midst of pain. and we have this hope, secure in Christ.
although we mourn our loss, we rejoice in her gain, joyful as she is before the throne of God.
and someday we will gather again together, not by a graveside, and not in travail, but in joy beside the river “which flows by the throne of God.”
