a hard goodbye

Today we said a final goodbye to my cousin. He just turned 39, and his life ended very unexpectedly last week. Some days in this life hurt, and this was one of them. I didn't get to see him often, but he holds a special place in my heart akin to a big brother. We will miss you, Justin.



Isaiah 25:6-9
On this mountain the Lord of hosts will make for all peoples
    a feast of rich food, a feast of well-aged wine,
    of rich food full of marrow, of aged wine well refined.
And he will swallow up on this mountain
    the covering that is cast over all peoples,
    the veil that is spread over all nations.
    He will swallow up death forever;
and the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces,
    and the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth,
    for the Lord has spoken.
It will be said on that day,
    “Behold, this is our God; we have waited for him, that he might save us.
    This is the Lord; we have waited for him;
    let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation.”
