Our family is walking through a grieving process this week. On Saturday two precious people were taken from this life. One was a lifetime friend of my husband. Their first pictures together are in the crib. They grew up in the same church, became room mates prior to marriage, sang together in a group they formed, recorded a Christian album. He sang in our wedding 34 years ago, and they worked together at the same company for years. Saturday he was taken before the throne after a battle with brain cancer. Their album was dedicated to the church where they all received their spiritual training. On the dedication was this verse - "I will sing of the loving kindness of the Lord forever; to all generations I will make known thy faithfulness with my mouth." Ps. 89:1
That same day, a cousin of my daughter-in-law was lost through a tragic accident. His short life of 31 years leaves a very big hole in the family. His life touched many with the joy of life.
God isn't afraid of our struggles or questions when things like this happen. David cried out and so did Job, yet we each have to walk out our grief. Each tragedy doesn't take away from the fact that God is still God and we are not.
My heart is heavy this week as I watch my love ones walk out their grief. I can't kiss the boo-boo away for my son and daughter-in-law, nor can grasp the loss of a husband to cancer.
I do know that God is good all the time and He is still God.
