When praying for a bereaved family, take a small flower from the funeral and press it inside that week’s pages. You may want to secure it.

Blessed are those that mourn, for they shall be comforted. Mark 5:4

When you have lost a loved one or are praying for a bereaved family, take a small flower from the funeral and press it inside that week’s pages. You may want to secure it, as I do with some pretty washi tape.

Blessed are those that mourn, for they shall be comforted. Mark 5:4

As I write this post, my mother is currently in hospice care.  Her empending death is the saddest thing I’ve ever faced in this life.  It has made me think a lot about life and death.  I think about what is really important and what is not.

In a great house there are not only vessels of gold and silver but also of wood and earthenware, and some for noble use, some for ignoble. If any one purifies himself from what is ignoble, then he will be a vessel for noble use, consecrated and useful to the master of the house, ready for any good work. (2 Timothy 2:20-21 RSV)

I pray that my life is made up of many noble things that benefits the kingdom of God; otherwise, all else is vanity.  I think about my mother’s legacy – her love of family, faithful friend, caretaker, and shopper (lol). For the many years that my mother was well, she was a go-to person for recipes, an extra bed, a friend.  She and my daddy took in more than couple of family members that needed a place to go, and was care-giver to more than one neighbor.  She is a very special person, as you can see.

When someone dies, I like to pray for the survivors for the remainder of the year.  Adding a flower to that week’s page is the perfect reminder for such a commitment.  I can easily thumb through my prayer journal and find that family in need.  I hope others pray for me and my family in such a painful season as this.  I will greatly appreciate it.

Happy Prayer Journaling!
