This morning when Nichole and I checked our emails, we were grieved to see that one of the ladies in our congregation had lost her mother in the night. She had passed quietly, surrounded by her children, but it is nonetheless an time for mourning.
So, imagine my surprise when I got out of the gym and had another email from the same lady telling me that her grandson’s girlfriend had given birth at 8:30!
Death and life – coexisting at virtually the same moment in time.
What better way could the Lord comfort this woman than to give new life for old? How amazing is that? God knew what he was doing. He always does.
So, we are both grieving AND celebrating with one of our precious ladies. Gotta love serving the King.
