The Lord God will wipe away the tears from every cheek.  – Isa 25:8

Reflection.  Abraham Lincoln once said, “In this sad world of ours, sorrow comes to all.  Perfect relief is not possible except with time.  You may not believe that you will ever feel better.  But this is not true.  You are sure to be happy again.  Knowing this, truly believing it, will make you less miserable now.”  We mourn the loss of those who are dear to us, but as the pain passes, the happy memories remain.

Prayer.  Dear Lord, heal my soul of its sorrow.
