Grief is Pain - Perspective
The LORD . . . has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,...
to comfort all who mourn,
and provide for those who grieve . . .
to bestow on them a crown of beauty
instead of ashes,
the oil of joy
instead of mourning,
and a garment of praise
instead of a spirit of despair.
Isaiah 61:1-3 NIV
