in a moment

late Sunday afternoon, after a fun filled day,
 we found out that a friend had experienced great heartache.
her husband had suddenly passed away the day before.
in one moment he was there and the next he was gone.
when we showed up on her doorstep, extending the light of Jesus the best we could,
she, in that moment of great sorrow, 
instructed us to hang on to what we have because we never know when it is over.
hang on.
for in but a moment.
lives are changed just like that.
sorrow is all around us.
love is all around too.
and even especially in times of great sorrow 
God is all around.
