Especially when the sun is out, shining and warming the spirit and heart.
A woman I went to high school with died very unexpectedly yesterday and many who knew her and were close all these many years, are greatly affected by the shock of this news. When death comes to the door of someone who is your own age, then it becomes more personal and our own mortality may feel threatened. Our memories of shared history becomes both a blessing and a sad re-living. There is as well, the heart felt pain of those who loved more intimately and are in deeper mourning......So in that spirit, the free and jubliant little lambs that run in the pastures with such joy might represent the faith that some will, hopefully, find comfort in.
May you rest in peace, Toni. God-Speed.
