Tough

Life has an abundance of tough moments – none more so than the loss of a loved one.  Cycles of birth and death are part of the human experience.

A passing over that’s expected is no less traumatic than a sudden, unexpected loss.  But they are different.  And when they come this time of year, there is an added sadness.

The ‘Merry’ in Christmas is not so merry.  The tinsel, the lights, the giving of the season, all lose luster.  The lights are not as bright, giving is poignant, and celebration is muted.  However the Holy Spirit is closer.  And if we allow that presence, we are comforted.

My heart flushes with tears around your loss.  I love you cousin!
