Today’s Prayer to Passage will be from the book ‘Tuesdays With Morrie’ by Mitch Albom.
Today I pray, “Dear God, What is some good, old-fashioned wisdom for the day? Amen.”
Following my prayer, I held the closed book in my hands and opened it to this passage:
“Death ends a life, not a relationship. All the love you created is still there. All the memories are still there. You live on — in the hearts of everyone you have touched and nurtured while you were here.”
Living forward, this is a wonderful thought toward completion. And death is not meant to cause anger, sadness, or a sense of loss — though it can and often does. The truth is that if we could empathize with the perfection of Heaven, we wouldn’t feel any anger or sadness. Yes, there are times when keeping someone in imperfection means that people can have them here longer as a part of their own dreams. I see my loved ones going home. And I am happy for them when they do. What I can do once they have departed is honor them with the love and memories they provided and contributed while they were here.
