First Wednesday of Advent

“The Lord God will wipe away the tears from all faces” – Isaiah 25:8

Advent has just begun and I am suffering. Suffering from an illness that seemed to come out of nowhere. It has really knocked me down and out.

The love and care of my husband has kept me from despair. The cards and prayers of people in my parish have helped me cope. One woman emails me once a week. She shares what is going on her life and relationship with God. Such a simple thing to do and yet so comforting.

If we want to know how God wipes away the tears from our faces, this is a perfect example. He uses others to do so. God comforts. God feeds. God wipes away tears.

How has God wiped away your tears? How do you experience His love?

Lord, thank you for comforting me. Thank you for helping me to feel less alone and more loved. Amen.

  1. This is beautiful Colleen. So glad you are finding peace and comfort in this dark time. Thank you for reminding us how very important it is to reach out to those suffering. In doing that it also helps us to forget (at least briefly) our own pain and suffering. Continue to heal, for we miss you!

  3. I can only imagine what you have been going thru…God will always wipe away your tears, life brings us to tears many many times, and if we look to God, and remember that he will be there…we can get out of our slump with that help. Be well,
