Before we get too far ahead of ourselves with the final week's preparations, let's take a moment and prepare space in our thoughts for Him. Have we left room in our thoughts for Him? Or are we more prone to fill it with lies we tend to think are truth, thoughts about ourselves, or thoughts that look down on others? Are we filling our mind with to-dos and what ifs and should-haves instead of promises and truth?

Gathering together when your family is fractured by death feels out of sync. The usual rhythms that you were once used to have to be re-coordinated, new roles assumed, and traditions shift. In times like these, when you are no longer as you once were and those who remain are trying to find their way - this is a time to gather in holy defiance.
