Sunday Mourning

It's overcast and grey this morning. I slept okay last night, but dreamt alot, felt like I woke up slowly, swimming up through the depths. A friend passed away this past week, and this morning will be the first time the church gets together since. It will be different without him, and yet he'll still be very much on our minds. I didn't know him well, just his smile and warmth and propensity for Harleys and a full handshake. I'll miss him, still, and look forward to seeing him again.

"The lowly he sets on high, and those who mourn are lifted to safety." - Job 5:11

"... provide for those who grieve in Zion —
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of gladness
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness,
a planting of the LORD
for the display of his splendor." - Isaiah 61:3


"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." - Matthew 5:4

"Rejoice with those who rejoice; mourn with those who mourn." - Romans 12:15
