Death is Like a Shadow

Have you ever been enjoying a nice sunny day when all of a sudden a dark cloud hides the sun? All of a sudden you’re in this shadow! What does the shadow do? It hides the light. It makes it more difficult to see the world and people around you. Darkness makes you feel all alone because you can’t see anyone else. Death is like a shadow. It makes us feel alone. It takes away some of the light in our lives. The good news is that the shadow is temporary. There will again come a time of rejoicing. As Ecclesiastes tells us there is a time for everything. A time to weep and a time to laugh; A time to mourn and a time to reflect. So even though you are experiencing the shadow of death now, there will come a time again of rejoicing.
