Beauty for Ashes

j0227554“I can still believe that a day comes for all of us, however far off it may be, when we shall understand; when these tragedies, that now blacken and darken the very air of heaven for us, will sink into their places in a scheme so august, so magnificent, so joyful, that we shall laugh for wonder and delight.” –Arthur Christopher Bacon

Oh, my Father, I so look forward to this rest.  It is physically taxing, emotionally draining, and spiritually exhausting some days to continue through this worldy gauntlet, and I often grow weary on this journey.

“To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness, the planting of the LORD, that he might be glorified.” Isa 61:3

Glory!
