Bright Sadness ~ A Request for Prayer



It is on this Most Holy Day of Pascha
that I announce the death of Mr. Husband's adult godson
of a sudden heart attack on 
Great and Holy Friday.
The newly departed leaves behind
a grieving widow and a young munchkin
The funeral is tomorrow, on Bright Monday with burial after
in a local cemetery. 
My little church munchkin wants to serve for the second time
in his life at his father's funeral.
We are brokenhearted.
We are also grieving with hope in the Risen Christ. 
Please pray for all the grieving, 
especially the widow and munchkin,
our church priest and choir 
and for Mr. Husband and I who 
are spending time with the 
grieving widow and munchkin.

How incredibly brave of the Munchkin to want to serve at his father's funeral though.....
Assuring you of my prayers for you all, in the sure and certain hope of the Resurrection.

Eternal rest grant unto him, O Lord,
and let perpetual light shine upon him.
May he rest in peace.
