Longing for the day of “no-more.”

I held my daughter as tightly as I could as I told her the news:  her friend’s father had just died.  A cruel blow at any time but so much more when you’re still in year 7.

Sometimes life sucks.  Really sucks. 

I find myself longing with greater intensity for the day of “no more” (Revelation 21:4), and longing that I would pray and live more fully the words of Jesus:  “Your kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10). 

We pray for all who mourn.
