For your steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in faithfulness to you.
Psalm 26:3 NRSV
Though with death you lose sight of your loved one, love is always in plain view. Death only separates; it does not take love away. In grief slowly you realize that nothing is lost or compromised if you release your tenacious emotional grip and relax into the certainty that love is. Love never fails.
God, on this day of rest my soul walks in the faithfulness of your love. I am grateful that your love is ever before me. Amen.
Love can outlast anything.
