BE SET FREE

     At my home congregation, we recently lost three very dedicated, long-time members of the church. They will be long remembered for their active service to God. They filled us with many fond and lasting memories. As I reflected on the scriptural lesson for us today, I thought about how these three members were “set free”, leaving us while in basically good health. Perhaps, they are free from the day to day journey with aging. However, they are free to journey with God and loved ones.

     While the pain of their departure is still very fresh especially with their families, we can keep the memories of them deep in our hearts. All three were indeed fortunate to have had daughters who were very much active in taking care of them and their immediate needs. These daughters displayed remarkable compassion and patience.  In retrospect, perhaps they have also been "set free" as they are now able to take care of themselves and have time to pursue other interests in life.

     Yes, we miss our loved ones who have been “set free” and we are so blessed for their contribution to life and for us to be “set free” to bless others.
