GRIEF – BLISS

We have all been there, bereavement time.

Grief stricken faces long,

A child is killed, car accident

A deeply hurting mom!

.

.

We really dig for comfort words

So awkward but we tried.

We even prayed a comfort prayer,

So helpless, the child died!

.

.

Our hearts wrung out, “Dear God, what gives?”

Do all things work for good?

This lovely child her life snuffed out!

This cannot be as it should!

.

.

“You love the little children, Lord,

Well, I love this one, too!

But now she is gone, a better place?

So now what do I do?”

.

.

It may sound trite but no less true,

She is in a better place!

She is there while you look forward to

God’s consummative grace!

.

.

Yes, we have all been there, the place of grief.

No “Happy Hunting Ground.”

The hunter has been hunted down

Now he is heaven-bound!

.

.

The kindness of our God, through grief

Do not underestimate!

The briefest day of suffering then

Sweet bliss beyond that gate!

.

.

Oh yes, you had the right words, A better place!

.
