Verse for the Week

Indeed, none who wait for you shall be put to shame;they shall be ashamed who are wantonly treacherous. ~ Psalm 25:3 (ESV)

Can words comfort a grieving heart? What solace is there for loss? The families of the slain students have filled the past week with all the various arrangements that must be made to fill in the hole left by the loss of their loved one. Some items, like funeral arrangements, are obvious. Other things, like canceling health insurance or getting someone to drive the second car back home will trickle in, one at a time, reopening wounded hearts for weeks to come. Is there any refuge from this kind of soul-storm? My belief is that preparations made before the storm work best because the winds of despair lay bare the foundation already in place. On what does your life rest?
