Yesterday, I was compelled to call a friend. Her voice was so shaken, I asked, “Is everything okay?”
I then received shocking news. Completely unexpected and undreamed of.
She said, “No, I’m not okay. Eddie (her husband) died two days ago. It’s odd you called, because I wanted to call and ask you to do something for me.”
I said I was sorry, shook my mind free of getting into the sadness of it and asked how I could help. I was able to help. Death is always a trying time, and we shared out gratitude that she will get back on her feet.
Matt. 5:4: Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.
Psalm. 30:11: You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness
