So, resurrection, it's been on my mind. A friend died last week. They've asked any of the children she taught who so desire to sing at her funeral tomorrow, and Robyn is going to sing. Betty was a wonderful teacher, and we'll miss her.
Also, Jackee posted a lovely tribute to her mother (whose ovarian cancer has relapsed) that got me thinking about mine. This May, it'll be ten years since her car accident. I miss her, but I know she's a force for good, working hard at whatever is most important. She always had a knack for seeing what needed to be done, and she worked harder than anyone I've ever met. I like to think of her being with my two sisters and brother who didn't get to spend as much time with her as the other seven of us.
I'm grateful I was blessed with such a mother and friend. I believe that Jesus Christ atoned for our sins and was resurrected so that we can be together again. I believe that Betty will get to be with her husband and that we can all be with those we love most. A loving Father in Heaven wouldn't have planned it any other way.
Thanks for letting me share what's on my mind. What's on yours?
I just realized that this post might lead someone to think that death doesn't bother me, that I don't grieve. It does, and I do. If you want to know how I feel about my mother's death on a bad night, read this post. When Lazarus died, Jesus wept.
