Widow To Widow, Genevieve Davis Ginsburg.
After the loss of a loved one there is, at first, a great buzz of activity as we make arrangements, as family and friends come together. There is comfort in the close press of friends, in shared tears and hugs, in gifts of food, in remembering. Religious services gives meaning and hope as the community gathers arounds us in love and support.
Then the services are over, relatives and friends go home, and we are left to enter a new and strange land-a land where one of the people who has given meaning to our life is gone.
God would have his children to do good to all men, but there should be also a special love and concern for doing good to our brothers and sisters in Christ. Even as members of a family care for each other, those in the family of God should look out for one another.
Engender in us, O Heavenly Father, a love for your children. Help us to walk in love toward all men but especially to be ready to help and give our time and effort to the household of faith. Let us act like true brothers and sisters towards those who are, in fact, our spiritual siblings.
Praise the Lord! God has a purpose for everything and everyone in Jesus name I pray Amen
