Life is short. How many times have you heard that cliched remark? The thing is, it's not a cliche. That has been proven repeatedly to me most of my life. I've seen parents lose a child and children lose a parent. I've seen siblings lose siblings and friends mourning the loss of friends. Each time I am reminded of how fleeting life is. Just remember that God is there for you, ALWAYS. Remember to be there for your friends and family when they need you. You don't know the right words to say? Don't say anything, just be there. Give them a hug. Hold their hand. Pray for them. That's what they're going to remember anyway. After my brother died, I cannot remember most of what people said, but I can remember the people that came and hugged me and were just there.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4:
3Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
