Mourning Has Broken

I got up early this morning... okay...earlier than usual... in hopes I can get my work done ahead of schedule and make it to a funeral of a dear friend's mother. It's apparently going to be a gloomy grey, cold and drizzly day.

I think that's maybe how it should be for graveside services...the very skies seem to mourn.

This is a time to grieve, but we will also celebrate a life well lived.

The rain will pass...the skies will clear.

We stand together as the body of Christ in good times and in bad.
