Losing someone we love is difficult. Even though we believe in heaven and life after death, their absence from everyday life is painful.
Dear Lord, you put people in my life, and then you take them away.
Oh, how my heart struggles with that!
I know I will see them again, but sometimes that isn’t enough.
Please help me feel their presence;
remind me that those I love are always with me
and the moments we’ve shared
are part of the person I have become.
