Mourning Dove - Trauertaube


This dove came only one time to our feeder. When I took the photo I thought already that I would show it today, because one year ago today our dear friend and brother-in-law Volker (39) went to heaven.
Let us find comfort in God's Word:

" God will wipe every tear from their eyes.There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." Revelation 21:4

Diese Taube kam nur einmal zu uns auf die Terrasse. Als ich die Aufnahme machte, dachte ich schon daran, sie heute zu zeigen, denn heute vor einem Jahr wurde unser lieber Freund und Schwager, Volker (39) in den Himmel gerufen. Hier ein Vers aus dem Wort Gottes zum Trost:

" Gott wird alle Traenen von ihren Augen abwischen: Der Tod wird nicht mehr sein, keine Trauer, keine Klage, keine Muehsal. Denn das was frueher war, ist vergangen."
Offenbarung 21:4

Volker - unvergessen.

That is sad, I am sorry to hear about your loss.

My Grandad loved birds and at his funeral whilst the music was playing we all looked out to see a big red kite which I think is a bird of prey floating on the breeze over the Valley in Wales where he was being buried. We thought it was him saying, I am okay.

Absolutely... comfort is in God's Word, and I'm so glad you know that.

Oh how lovely that the dove of peace would visit you at such a special time of memory! If God sees a sparrow fall, then He could sure send a dove of comfort.
