Mourning to Joy

I will turn their mourning into joy; I will comfort them, and give them gladness for sorrow. Jeremiah 31:13b

Yesterday was the second anniversary of the death of our church secretary’s 18 year old son. I feel helpless and don’t know what to say to them. My job is to pray and to point them to scripture. It seems impossible that their mourning can turn into joy, but they are able to celebrate his life.
