The calling – the church – Day 31 –
(the church = the people of God / followers of Jesus Christ)
Just as I began to write this morning
word came seeking
“Aunt Susie” –
the cry so deep
the pain profound.
Their mom suddenly gone.
“Aunt Susie, come; please come.”
Death is jarring.
Grief is jarring over and over again.
The wounded healer is sought;
the comforting aunt is sought;
God is sought.
I will go.
“Speak to their pain,” I say to self.
“Speak hope into their pain.”
“Speak of the legacy of love from their mom to them,
and challenge them to live out love,” I say to self.
