Strewn over the top of my friend Melissa’s kitchen table are a dozen or so sympathy cards and notes.
These are just a sampling of all that’s she’s received from friends and even some strangers since her tragic event just over a month ago.
The words of comfort written in each one, the prayers and the scriptures have spoken volumes to Melissa during her low moments, and she finds herself bringing the cards out often.
There’s a card signed by a group of teachers from her local elementary school. Melissa points that one out to me and shows me their kind words.
One card comes from a niece who sends a hug her way. And another, with pink and blue flowers, has a Bible verse found in Psalm 56:8 that she’s got memorized: “You have collected all my tears in your bottle.”
“I don’t recall ever hearing that verse before,” says Melissa, “but I know it now.” She’s cried a lot of tears over the past few weeks, and she’s figuring that God’s got a pretty big bottle with her name on it.
