Prayers for a sweet friend just taken off life support. Hard as it is, get used to death. When you understand it, you stop considering death a loss. God would not stop a caterpillar from becoming a butterfly, an acorn from growing into an oak, nor a tadpole from becoming a frog. That’s simply dropping one body and acquiring another. Would we keep a toddler in kindergarden or a 6th grader in elementary school? No, we let them graduate to the next phase in the process, so they can continue to learn and grow and become more of what they are meant to be. That’s all death is: going from one form to another. We survive in consciousness after the change called death of this physical body. Grief is work but it doesn’t have to be grim. When you check out of your physical body, your work is able to take on a new dimension.
