Bright Sadness: My Aunt Karen's Funeral


My Aunt Karen's funeral was beautiful and I cried (quietly) a few times.
The sermon from the pastor was very well done, heartfelt and full of 
the Gospel and also comfort while facing deep trials and struggles.
I was able to do some prayers for my +Aunt by her casket this morning
and read Psalm 23 one last time (of me seeing her body) ... of course I will keep
praying Psalms for my +Aunt.... I nearly bawled after doing that but
held my wooden prayer rope tight as I did not want to break down in 
weeping and call attention to myself. 
I am so glad it is Bright Week, even though while being home
I am not with my beloved Husband.
I hope to visit with more family this week and that is a blessing.

Memory eternal to your beloved aunt. Special hugs and prayers for you, my friend.

Christ is risen from the dead, trampling down death by death, and upon those in the tombs bestowing life.....
