HUG Corner: Thought for the Week - 10/08

Location : North Houston

Healing After Loss (Martha Whitmore Hickman)

 But the souls of the righteous are in the hand of God and there shall no torment touch them. In the sight of the unwise they seemed to die; and their departure is taken for misery, and their going from us to be utter destruction; but they are in peace.

-The Wisdom of Solomon 3:1-3

These words from the ancient wisdom of the Apocrypha seem as contemporary now as they must have seemed when they were first written. Our anxiety, our perception, our hope are all echoed here - as they have been through the writings for the ages.

It is comforting to see how constant have been the questions and answers about death and what lies beyond. If so many people, for so long, have strongly believed that when we die we return to God and are at peace, then surely we, too, can embrace this hope - for our loved ones, and for ourselves.

In the wisdom of the ages may I find solace and hope.
