Celebrating Life… everlasting

Went to Church today.

Went to pray: "…Give rest, O Christ, to your servants with your saints, where sorrow and pain are no more, neither sighing, but life everlasting."

A friend's mother, a servant, joined the saints in Heaven. Having spent 95 years in His service she is finally in His arms of mercy, of everlasting peace.

For me, of all the Church services, I feel the funeral service is the most important. To be present, with loved ones, all praying… thanking God for His mercy, His love, His everlasting peace. And so I find much joy in death. 

I hope this doesn't come across as too morbid. It certainly isn't intended to be. After all, it is the ultimate love story.

…and I will dwell in the house of the Lord forever. Amen.
