Yesterday I went to the funeral of a friend.
I love what scripture says.
But we would not have you ignorant, brethren, concerning those who are asleep, that you may not grieve as others do who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so, through Jesus, God will bring with him those who have fallen asleep. 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18 RSV
It’s OK to be sad about losing a dear friend, but when they are believers our grief is tempered by the knowledge that we will see them again and be able to party with them forever.
It’s times like these that I hold my sweetie close. He is such a gift to me, but I know one day we will know that brief separation that comes before eternity. I want to have my “I love you’s” and “I’m sorry’s” all up to date!
(And just a practical note, do have your paperwork in good working order. It’s a kindness not to leave the surviving spouse with a mess.)
