A friend recently went to a funeral where the preacher said this:
"over the years I have come to think of our personal grief as a tribute or compliment to the one we miss. He said it is like saying to/of that person "you are worth my sadness."
I love it.
If you are sad or grieving today, just think of how that honors the person that we miss. They were great. They were worth it.
I can not imagine a life where there was no one that I thought was worth crying over. Thank you God for those who are worth our tears.
It's a beautiful day in God's world, be sure to see the good.
