Day #279

October 6, 2014

We laid the oldest member of the congregation to her final resting place today with the reminder: ashes to ashes, dust to dust. Truly a humbling moment and a moment of profound grief.

Yet, the outpouring of love and care for the family through the presence of folks and food was indeed heartwarming. But then, I am not surprised. It’s what they do. And they do it well!

May the Lord bless her and keep her. The Lord’s face shine on her with grace and mercy. The Lord look upon her with favor and give her peace. And everyone else, as well!
