As some of you might know I had an uncle pass away this last week and I attended his services this weekend. My heart just breaks for my aunt and cousins, since I can relate to the pain of lossing someone very close and special. When learning about the news I asked my mom if there was something I should bring or do. She suggested that I put some tiles together for each one of them with a saying on them.
Large Tile Small Tile
God didn't promise Days without Pain, Be Still and know that I am God
Laughter without Sorrow,
Sun without Rain,
but He did promise Strength for the day,
Comfort for the Tears,
and Light for the way.
When the tiles were given my aunt was deeply touched and my cousin Becky said that she was so grateful she could take something back home with her. Since she would be flying there was no way for her to take flowers. Sorry about the picture, or should I say lack of. I was in such a hurry to get these done and to get my mom's approval that I completely forgot. I don't think this does any justice for how pretty they turned out.
I thought I would share this with you all since I have so many friends and family that are dealing with the loss of a loved one. I hope this comforts the soul and helps to ease the pain, even if it is for a moment.
