How precious is your steadfast love, O God! Psalm 36:7 NRSV

Thought

Though death robs you of the presence and companionship of your loved one, it never can steal the precious love you shared together. That place of inner sanctum always will be part of who you are, whatever the future. Your life journey is greater, richer, and fuller for having loved the one lost to you in death. The time and space you share in love is both sacred and eternal.

Prayer

God, your steadfast love assures me that love cannot be taken away or destroyed, even by death. I am grateful for the precious gift of love. Amen.

Assurance

I am created to love and to be loved.
