Reality Here

They have lost three of four parents in 6 months time. That is quite a change in the family makeup. Liz originally expected to have 4 grandparents at her wedding; now she will have one. That is quite a change in the wedding scene.

They are in the Lord's hand; all three of them were believers. Is there any better comfort? Still, there is a sorrowing, not as those without hope, but indeed, sorrowing as people who will miss those who have been dear to them.

And such is life in this realm. It really is this way. There is sorrow, there is joy. There are beginnings and there are endings. There is sunshine with flowers then gray skies and barrenness. This sounds vaguely familiar. "To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven."

Rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. It is all real, it is all a part of life. And His is the strength and grace that will get us through to eternity.
