By day the LORD commands his steadfast love, and at night his song is with me, a prayer to the God of my life. Psalm 42:8 NRSV

Thought

Though the music of life stops for a while with the death of your loved one, the song of eternal love plays forever in your heart. The melody never changes; the tune remains the same. Perhaps the patina of time adds depth to the arrangement as the setting of life changes. The echo of your shared song reverberates forever, sharing its beauty with others throughout eternity.

Prayer

God, your song of love is with me day and night. You are the God of my life. Amen.

Assurance

The song of my life plays on.
