Another funeral today

I am doing another funeral today.  She is a friend's wife.  She had a car wreck back in Sept. but, she never recovered from it.  She was 47, left 2 children behind.  Her husband's mother and I were classmates in school.  I do not know the count but, this is 30 plus funerals for me this year.  This is a specially a sad time, it seems, around Christmas time.
I will do my best to bring comfort to this family.  I strive to be a blessing, wherever I am but, I am sure I fail somewhere in this process, because I am human.  My heart goes out to this family.  They did not attend church much.  She was Catholic and he is protestant.  He didn't like her church and she did not feel comfortable in any denominational church they attended so, they just did not go much. This indeed, is sad.

I hope you can survive emotionally during the stress of funerals...it seems that you have known or was close to those whom you have buried. God will give you the strength and the peace to get through....Blessings...dale, brandon\'s mom

I think it is number 32. Yes this is a very sad time , for those who have to celebrate christmas for the first time without their loved ones is so difficult, even you have just had personal lost. I once read a poem the first Christmas after my dad died, this will be our 4th with out him. It was about not shedding any tears, cause they were spending Christmas with Jesus this year. It was a comfort to me. I will keep you and this family in prayer.
In His Grace, connie
