Here are two pieces to help on a difficult day for so many.
Lord, we give you thanks for the gift of tears
For tears of grief, redeeming our mourning from despair
For tears of anger, awakening our thirst for justice
For tears of laughter, celebrating our joy in living.
May the light of Christ, shining through our tears
Become the rainbow of your promise
Shedding colours of your love’s bright presence
In your grieving, struggling, laughing world.
Time is too slow for those who wait
Too swift for those who fear
Too long for those who grieve
Too short for those who rejoice
But for those who love, time is eternity.
Henry Van Dyke (1852-1933)
May the nations know peace and each one know calmness and light.
