Celebrating her life.

“Come grieve with me, my faithful friend. This is my time for mourning. When it becomes your time, you also will not be one, but two. We will do it together.” -anonymous

Today we gather to celebrate, to honor her life, to mourn together, and worship our creator.
Today marks a day you never wish was happening yet you long to pour yourself out in singing praise of a life well lived.
Today this bad dream sinks in a little deeper–this is reality.
Today I will stand and share of her impact on my 28 years of life.
Today I reflect on life, a breath that disappears like a shadow.

Today is a day of mourning.

God blesses those who mourn, for they will be comforted. Matthew 5:4
Today we hold both sorrow yet joy, suffering yet hope, despair yet praise, life yet death.
Today we celebrate life lived in the temporary earth and life to come awaiting in heaven.

We pour our hearts out, aching, mourning, crying for a beautiful life lost yet we find comfort & cling to hope. We groan for heaven, for we long to put aside death and mourning.

Something with me in fights within that this is not right, this is not how it was meant to be. I cling to the promises of scripture. I dare to hope for the best is yet to come. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:4

 Today I long for heaven.

 

I found this on her instagram feed…I can’t help but smile.
