The Last Respect
It is said that the Lord gives and the Lord takes, perhaps the Lord had taken this one.
It's with great pain and sadness that death decided it's laying its cold hands on the life of the mother to one of our own, our very beloved colleague in school.
She bid her mom the final farewell when she laid her to rest.
She is the only child of her parents and it is so sad that they've left her to become an orphan at such a tender age.
I feel really sad for the girl and how she would cope in school, but it is said that as far as there is life, there is hope and I trust God to always be ready to help in times of trouble and to provide for her every need.
We were invited to the funeral service, we went to sympathize with our beloved and to console her wearied heart, to back her up and remind her that she has a family who cares for her and will be there for her if she needs us.
The young girl was so brave and did not let tears ruin the day on her part.
While rain tried to disrupt the function, God later made it stop raining and the whole service was well conducted and it was a success.
To me, the girl appeared rather strong until her mom's corpse was laid into the grave where she let out the tears she had been holding back from the beginning of the occasion.
It's not easy to not shed tears in such situations or circumstances.
We really did sympathize with her and tried to console her in the Lord.
My weekend might not have been the best of the best cause of a series of things I had on my table, but I say it was a good one and I pray the new week brings good tidings of joy, Amen.
And to the girl who just lost her mom, I pray she finds the strength and courage to keep going despite how it might get tough along the way.
