MIXED FRUIT BASKET was sent by Rachel .

God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. 2 Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, 3 though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging. 4 There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy place where the Most High dwells. 5 God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at break of day. 6 Nations are in uproar, kingdoms fall; he lifts his voice, the earth melts. 7 The LORD Almighty is with us; the God of Jacob is our fortress. 8 Come and see what the LORD has done, the desolations he has brought on the earth. 9 He makes wars cease to the ends of the earth. He breaks the bow and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. 10 He says, “Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”

I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of your beloved wife. May God give you strength to cope with the emptiness you feel. I pray that time will help you understand His will, just as I must deal with the loss of my son Matthew 1 month ago. God bless and keep you close to our Catholic faith for strength to go on, as best as you can.

Saw the beautiful sunset on the way home tonight from the viewing. “Live every moment. Love every day. Before you know it your precious time slips away.” From REO Speedwagon, a band Karen and I both liked to listen to.
