Day 12 - Comfort someone in need.

December 1 thru December 25 I am posting about movies which reflect each day's focus for #LightTheWorld.

Day 12

"Blessed are they that mourn." (Matthew 5:4)

Mourning is a part of life. We mourn the death of loved ones, the end of relationships, the loss of jobs, loss of health.

Some people know just what to say or do to comfort those in need. I am not one of those. But I try. 

When I grieve, the best thing to help break my dark thought patterns is laughter, so I love this scene from Steel Magnolias (1989)...

Fandango MovieClips: Steel Magnolias "I Wanna Know Why"

This post--today's focus for #LightTheWorld--comes at a perfect time. I said goodbye to a dying friend last night, and visited with her husband. With the Lord's help, he feels comfort and peace during this difficult time. And that comforts me, too. "Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted." Such a blessing.


  1. I disagree. You always know the right things to say to comfort me. �� This is a great clip and fits the theme perfectly!

    1. Aww, you're sweet. I'm glad I can comfort you.
