No Words

Sometimes There Are No Words

As we live our lives, we will inevitably encounter tragedies or events where words seem inadequate to express our feelings or offer comfort. We fumble, we repeat pat phrases, or we avoid our friend or neighbor because “sometimes there are just no words.”

These are times that our silent presence is more comforting than any words or casserole. Think about the times when our prayers are silent. We know God knows all about our troubles or worries and so we come to God in silence and often God’s presence is what we seek and need. Our neighbors are no different.

While we hope you never experience such moments, if you do, remember that sometimes presence and support, whether from a friend, neighbor, or a higher power, can be more comforting than words alone.
