"beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness..." -Isaiah 61:3 KJV
When loss seems apparent, the beauty of peace and goodness is there; when someone mourns, the oil of gentleness will loosen and heal the stiffened heart; when stress and fear weigh us down, gratitude for God will lift us into newness of Life.
[God] will give a crown of beauty for ashes, a joyous blessing instead of mourning, festive praise instead of despair." -Isaiah 61:3 NLT
