It's Friday and the funeral....

Hi blog friends...I believe it's Friday....we have really lost track of time this week with all the arrangements, running around, phone calls etc. Yesterday was the wake...it was busy which kept us all on our toes and not a lot of crying...I will admit it was not really brought to tears during the wake.....for many reasons....one being that I know that Jesus does not want us to mourn the death of his children, but celebrate their life and the life everlasting life that he now knows...

I am speaking today at the funeral and here is what I am planning on saying....

Lord Jesus Christ, you see our sadness and our loneliness, our questions, our anxiety. Craig's death is hard for us to understand. In our sadness we turn to you. You have suffered the pain of death on your cross. Grant us the cross to meet your love, which brings us from death to life.

I will admit, this is something I found not something that is mine originally. There was no author on it, or I would have given credit.

I have everyone enjoys their Friday and prays for us for the day. Thanks in advance everyone!

Looking forward to a great weather weekend!

Those are beautiful words. Hope you and your husband are managing well. Today's the day for my uncle's burial so it really resonates with me
