within a few hours

On Friday evening a young man died in a car accident on the main road running through our village. And the same evening the new wife of a friend who I have known for over thirty years died of a massive brain haemorrhage. A few hours later, in the ambulance outside my son's house my new grandson came into the world - as yet with no name.
And life goes on .......

  1. These moments are rare, and they give us pause.

    Rejoicing with you in the arrival of your new grandson.
    Weeping with you in the grief of bereeavement.
    Standing with you in the bewilderment of communal mourning.

    God bless you.
