Ecclesiastes 3:4 English Standard Version (ESV)
4 a time to weep, and a time to laugh;
a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
Job 8:21 English Standard Version (ESV)
21 He will yet fill your mouth with laughter,
and your lips with shouting.
Zephaniah 3:17 English Standard Version (ESV)
17 The Lord your God is in your midst,
a mighty one who will save;
he will rejoice over you with gladness;
he will quiet you by his love;
he will exult over you with loud singing.
The celebration of life was held today for our dear loved one and there was sweet laughter as we remembered him. Because his illness took away his ability to smile, and he had had a great one, I like thinking about him having an ever-laughing life. He's been restored. God has indeed filled his mouth with laughter and his lips with shouting now and forevermore.
