Death is an intruder. It can strike like lightning or be as slow as running oil. The way remains unpredictable. Death stays a painful reminder of your mortality. But, I, Jesus, know the pain with you. We are strugglers together in the time of any uprooting surprise. Yet, after the crushing darkness, a healing light will break through. This will be a reminder that I have overcome the Intruder. The Father stays merciful, for that you can depend.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for giving us beauty and life to overcome death.
