Thoughts: I cry easily. A neglected child in a book, an injured horse in a movie, a friend’s illness, a soldier’s funeral – just the sound of a bugle playing “Taps” – and our children would chorus, “mom’s crying!”
So I love the promise that “god shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.” This image of our Heavenly father wiping away all tears from our eyes is ineffably sweet and comforting.
“So, the all-great were the all-loving, too.” – Robert Browning
Discussion: Another person’s grief can be uncomfortable for us. Why is this?
Activity: Remember someone you know who needs comforting, and give that confort through a phone call or a note or homemade muffins or a pot of hyacinths.
