"Precious in the sight of the LORD is the death of his saints.
O LORD, truly I am thy servant; I am thy servant, and the son of thine handmaid: thou hast loosed my bonds.
I will offer to thee the sacrifice of thanksgiving, and will call upon the name of the LORD.
I will pay my vows unto the LORD now in the presence of all his people.
In the courts of the LORD's house, in the midst of thee, O Jerusalem. Praise ye the LORD."
These verses have been on my mind through the week as I've watched very dear friends go through the process of losing a loved one unexpectedly - they are a comfort, as is knowing that the Lord is doing what is best for those that love Him.
