Wouldn’t you know it, our email verse-a-day today is all about comfort–just when we’re on our way to the funeral…
"… the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles,.." (from 1 Cor. 1:3, 4)
The prayer is also perfect:
"Tender Shepherd, there have been times when I was so broken I could not go on. I know the strength to continue came from Your rich grace and mercy. Please use me this week [today!] to offer Your comfort and love to others so they may feel Your warm embrace…"
Chorus? The Mom used to change the words a bit, and sing this to her baby:
"Yes, Jesus loves you,
Yes, Jesus loves you,
Yes, Jesus loves you!"
If anything is for children, this is; but we’ve seen adults sing it slowly, letting it sink in with each repetition…
"Yes, Jesus loves me…"
Walk to Rivendell: We continue on our 2nd day from Weathertop.
