What language does love speak when the earthly journey of someone you love is nearly over? I have just recently lost a very dear friend, someone whose love and compassion over a long period of time was a beautiful gift in my life, and whose presence will be everlasting. As I sat at her softly lit bedside, I felt Heaven very close and I could feel our Heavenly Father’s pure love as I prepared to say goodbye. I knew in those very tender last moments that love speaks what is in one’s heart, and that to love and be loved is divine.
Our mortality is fragile and our goodbyes are painful and full of void, but somehow through tears and sadness comes the sustaining warmth and gentle peace of knowing we will meet our loved ones again. God’s grace and goodness on wings of angels, comforts us with His love and protects our every special and precious memory.
