My first morning glance at the internet website gave me some shockingly sad news
One of my favorite TV host of one of my favorite shows had died
This was so unexpected to the world as he wasn’t sick or old
What an emptiness I felt even though him I didn’t personally know
To his tv show I’d look forward, now my tv night will have a big void

But that’s what death does— leaves a big void
Especially if the relationship was close
You wonder how you can carry on
Jesus said blessed are those who mourn (Matthew 5:4)
As God has amazing ways to provide comfort

Sometimes he brings new relationships to your life
Other times you grow closer to the ones left behind
Then the pain of void just dulls over time

No one can figure out death, why it is such a thing
How come people you love can’t just go on existing?
It’s just not God’s design for anything to keep on living
But it is in His his design to provide comforting
And I can attest that He will provide comfort after death.
